Postseason Site Updates

By Aaron Brown

 

As the postseason is now underway, here is a list of the latest updates that may help you keep up with and possible help during the most hectic time of the water polo season:

 

1) Sectional Ballers - Ballers will be named at the end of each round of the sectional playoffs, ranging from the play-in games to the sectional finals. Super Ballers will be named like usual at the end of the sectional playoffs.

 

2) Twitter Feed - For those without Twitter or who shy away from social media, a link has been provided directly on the web site that allows site viewers to follow the latest updates from the sectional and state playoffs besides the scores.

 

3) Live Scoreboard - Scores will be updated on the main page for all live games. All game scores will be updated on the scoreboard page when they are completed.

 

5) Sectional Center - The 2015 Sectional Center will provide schedules, scores and recaps throughout the postseason and will also list the All-Sectional Teams once they are voted on and announced.

 

6) Brackets - Playoff brackets are now available to either keep track of postseason results or to make your own playoff predictions.

 

7) Illpolo Video Podcast - Time permitting, a video podcast will be available shortly.

 

8) Baller Shirt Order - The first batch of Baller and Super Baller shirts are almost gone, but a new order is being processed for any late season purchases and giveaways.

 

9) Lollapalooza Ticket Auction - More details will be listed soon, but a three-day pass to Lollapalooza will be auctioned off for a good cause next week via illpolo.com.

 

10) A Postseason Call For More Information - With the sectional quarterfinals beginning on Wednesday, most teams have spent the past two or three days getting prepared with a practice session to go over scouting reports about their opponents later in the week. The most important week of the season calls for as much preparation as possible as teams face the realization that a loss means their season is over.

 

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.

 

There is 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 Sectional Center, The Illpolo Report, or several other places on the site.

 

So here is my call out to any coach, fan, parent, player, or anyone else involved with the sport of water polo. Make the assumption that no one else will send any information in. Take the time to send information to illpolostaff@gmail.com via e-mail. Send text messages after each quarter, halftime, or at the end of a game to (847) 331-6520 or DM to the @illpolo Twitter account 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 2-3 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 fans throughout and beyond 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 takes place with the great sport of water polo during the most exciting time of the season!

 

Best of luck in the postseason,

Aaron Brown
