“We are leaving Monday [for nationals] and so are they,” Miller said.  “Since they are only four hours away and we are going to be in different brackets we decided this was a good practice.”

On March 10, the UNT polo team lost to Texas A&M by one point. After the loss, the club was chosen to be one of the two wildcard teams in the tournament. Both UNT and Texas A&M will compete in the Nationals Tournament starting on April 2.

UNT will play Cal Poly in the first round of the men’s bracket in Virginia. According to Miller, the team is looking forward to a good game.

“The Cal Poly game will be a good game for us to get warmed-up in Virginia,” Miller said. “That will get us ready to play the University of Virginia in the semi-finals and they are really really good. They’re very tough to beat. But, I think we can do it. We’re a really good team.”
