Hi everyone,

I wanted to let everyone know that W&J decided to turn the water polo men's and women's programs into a club sport.  While club sports are great at larger schools. turning a D3 sport into a club sport is a death sentence.  Tiger Water Polo has grown exponentially since my time at NA and then to WJ.  Keeping water polo in my area is in imperative, especially at such well respected institutions so close to home.  As parents, former players, and active, I strongly ask that you sign the petition and please put comments forth so the president of WJ and Athletic Director understand how important and unique it is to have water polo alive and thriving in Western PA. 

On a personal note, I am humbled to see what the Tiger Water Polo Club has become.  For anyone at the CMU tournament, it was one of the most Herculean water polo efforts by both the Tiger Masters and High School teams.  I look forward to rejoining the club upon my return to Pittsburgh in a few years.

Thank you for your support!
