A unique tournament serves as something of a season opener for Oregon prep water polo. The Redmond Jamboree features over 100 “mini-matches” and nearly 40 teams as noted by the Bend Bulletin. The games take up only eight minutes on the clock and cover three days.
Last year, the Summit girls water polo team ended the season on top, capturing its first state championship with an overtime victory over crosstown rival Mountain View. But on Friday, the Storm were back to square one, just like the 37 other teams packed into the steamy Cascade Swim Center for the three-day Redmond Jamboree.
Oregon’s state high school championships take place in November on the weekend of the 11th and 12th.
