This past weekend, Denver Bike Polo teamed up with Boulder Bike Polo to host the South Central regional qualifier in the beautiful mountains of Boulder, Colorado. With only 16 teams competing for 6 spots, each team had an astounding 38% chance to qualify from the get go. Even with the odds working in all the teams favor, the 6 teams that qualified came as no surprise to anyone familiar with the South Central region.
In our opinion, the biggest winners this weekend were Texas bike polo. Of the 18 players that qualified for North Americans, 11 were representing Texas. Not only that, the 2013 South Central champions were Texas’ own Boobies Make ME SMILE (Pelon, Robert ATX, Andrew SMC). Texas also ended up claiming two thirds of the silver metal and all of the bronze. So a huge congratulations to Texas for showing the South Central region what polo looks like!
The full list of qualified teams is as follows:
- 1st: Boobies Make ME SMILE (Pelon, Robert ATX, Andrew SMC)
- 2nd: Ghost Wolves (Bob, Zach ATX, Maxxx SEA)
- 3rd: Mucho Take It Easy (Miguel ATX, Diego, Miguel HOU)
- 4th: Witchcraft (Spencer, Malakai, Josh LKS)
- 5th: Diablos de Tejas (alekos HOU, David, David SAT)
- 5th: Trident (Duncan DEN, Alex, Lee DRO)
I hope to see you all in Minneapolis!
