The Ride to Nationals

UConn fielded its first polo team in 1969. Since then, the men's and women's programs have won a combined 10 National Championships at the club level. The women's team is ranked in the top three in the country. But unlike men's or women's basketball, teams that draw sellout crowds from across Connecticut, the polo team plays its games in front of a handful of spectators at Horsebarn Hill Arena.

The team, coached by volunteer Jon Nicholson, is fueled by a single unifying principle: a love of the game. And just like any other UConn team, the polo program's goal is simple: win a National Championship.
