Dragon Water Polo Teams Finish Second in State

The Carroll boys’ and girls’ water polo teams were in action at Texas A&M University last weekend for the 45th annual TISCA Texas State High School Water Polo tournament.

The teams played four games, advancing to the championship game before coming up just short of the state title. Both teams lost 8-4 in hard-fought games and were declared state runners-up. The girls were the defending 2015 state champions, and this was the boys’ highest-ever finish at the state championship.
