The Olympics are over and now it’s the best time of the year here in the US, especially in California. Collegiate and high school polo have kicked off, hopefully leveraging the Yanks’ Olympic success. Coverage of the college game online continues to improve. But what in the world is going on with high school coverage? OCVarsity.com and Dan Albano continue to provide fine coverage of the powerhouse Orange County scene. But the site can be buggy, depending on the platform, and has stooped to ever more popups to support itself. But none can compete with the Press Telegram (I’ll spare you the link) for both making an innocent browse a depressing chore, fending off popups and waiting for its various useless widgets to load, and for its complete neglect of a sport that largely put the community on the map; not even a season preview to be found yet on the site. That could change, but I have little incentive to return to the site to find out.
Finding scores or simple game recaps on any of my usual online sources has also become far too difficult, largely pushed aside by high school football – a shame. Just for example, where can I find the complete results for the Poway tournament in San Diego County? (Yes, I focus almost entirely on California because that’s where the teams I know far best are.) Maybe it’s easier than I think, but it’s certainly not as easy as it used to be. Try finding daily scores for yourself. Here are the sources I used to depend upon:
For those who follow high school polo outside California, where do you go to track the game?
