“Easterns” water polo tournament, November 3 & 4

From: Greg McDivitt
Date: Mon, Oct 15, 2018 at 8:45 AMDear all,

On Saturday and Sunday, November 3 & 4, the varsity water polo team will play in the annual Eastern Interscholastic Prep School Water Polo Tournament (“Easterns”), which this year will be held as one larger single-bracketed tournament (unlike the model in most of the past year, where an 8-team “A” bracket played a separate tournament in a totally different location than the “B” bracket played). The games will be played at The Baldwin School (701 Montgomery Ave, Bryn Mawr, PA) and The Episcopal Academy (1785 Bishop White Dr, Newtown Square, PA).

Because the format has changed to a larger single bracket, the games begin early Saturday morning instead of Saturday afternoon, and although seedings and our exact game schedule will not be finalized until the Maryland, Pennsylvania and New Jersey league tournaments have been completed during the last week of October, initial seedings indicate that it is likely Mount Saint Joseph will play an early Saturday morning game. As a result, the water polo team will be traveling with a two-night stay rather than a single overnight for this year’s tournament. We plan to depart from MSJ’s campus after school on Friday, November 2nd. We will be staying at the Crowne Plaza Philadelphia at the King of Prussia Mall (260 Mall Blvd).

This is a varsity-only tournament. However, as is our custom, some of the older JV players have been invited to move up as eligible bench players for this post-season tournament; these sophomore players have already received word from the coaches at the pool. Our practice schedule extends throughout the week of October 29th. All JV players who are not traveling to Easterns are encouraged but not required to attend practice this final week of the season.

A permission slip and will be available soon. This year, players will be asked to pay a fee ($50.00) to help defray the travel costs.

Further details and documents to follow soon.

Thank you,

Greg McDivitt
