FEATURE ARTICLE

 

A Call For More Information

By Aaron Brown

 

Yesterday's article focused on two teams involved a play-in game at the Barrington Sectional. Both teams entered the contest with four wins in 2010, and both were looking to keep their season alive for two more days. The point of the example was simple; to stress the importance of every single game and every single team in the state of Illinois.

 

As has been stated many times throughout the year, the whole purpose of this site is to promote the sport of water polo and, even more importantly, to recognize the efforts of the boys and girls that participate in this great sport.

 

That being said, there should be no reason why every single game and every single performance cannot be recognized with a brief recap that can be included in locations like The Illpolo Blog, The 2010 Sectional Center, or eventually in The Illpolo Report or Ballers of the Week.

 

Taking a quick look at Monday night's schedule, there were a total of seven play-in games. Five of those games have game recaps that recognize the top performers from those games. Unfortunately, there are two games with no recaps, which simply means that no one sent in any information about those games. And that means that a handful of players don't get the recognition they so rightly deserve, especially when you consider that any game from this point on could be the last one of the season for every team.

 

So here is my call out to any coach, fan, parent, player, or anyone else involved with the sport of water polo. Take the time to send information to illpolo2010@gmail.com. Make the assumption that no one else will send any information in. Send text messages after each quarter or at halftime to (847) 331-6520 with a quick score report. If you see that there is no information about a game and you have some details that would be helpful in getting some hard-working players recognition...submit it!

 

This will be mentioned again later in the week, but I am also looking for anyone who is willing to send live game info on either Friday or Saturday during semifinal and final games. With eight different sites hosting games at nearly identical times, I will only be able to get to 3-4 places to see and report on games, so anyone who is willing to send live game information can provide a great service to water polo supporters throughout Illinois. If you have any questions or need more information, please contact me at the e-mail address listed above.

 

Let's do whatever possible to get all of the athletes the credit they deserve and keep everyone updated on what is happening with this great sport of water polo during the most exciting time of the season!
