For the second year in a row, the Menlo Mavericks have qualified for USA water polo's Junior Olympics. The Mavericks were able to qualify two teams, 14-and-under girls and 10-and-under coed. The 10-and-under coed team achieved a big win that put them in the "platinum" division of the tournament, which is the highest bracket. They placed 23rd overall and third in their zone. The future looks bright for this group with many of the younger competitors gaining more experience in next year’s tournament. The 14-and-under girls are making big strides with several group members competing last year in the 12-and-under team. The girls developed friendships with many of the other teams and came away more inspired to improve and qualify to compete next year. The Menlo Mavericks want to thank Menlo Swim and Sport, BBAF, Project 2020 and the City of Menlo Park for the continued support in making their team goals possible.
