Zachary Lowery and Nate Winkler, who play on the CSHS Varsity Water Polo team and are members of the Southlake/Grapevine Thunder Water Polo Boy’s Varsity Team, will be representing the Southwest Zone at the national championship. The Southwest Zone team includes athletes from North Texas as well as from the Houston and Austin areas.
