Postseason Water Polo Updates

By Aaron Brown

 

Now that the postseason is underway, here is a list of some updates that might help you keep up with the action 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. Most game scores will be updated on the scoreboard page, the blog and in the Sectional Center when they are completed.

 

4) Sectional Center - The 2016 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.

 

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

 

6) A Postseason Call For More Information - 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. 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 send a message to the @illpolo account on Twitter 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 goes down in the great sport of water polo during the most exciting time of the season!

 

Best of luck in the postseason,

Aaron Brown
