    FALL WATER POLO
     
    The Fall is the Pennsylvania High School Water Polo Season which means there is a lot of water polo activities happening in the local community.

    The Boys and Girls High School Squads start competing mid-August and run into early November with the Conference and State Championships. Lead by a knowledgeable coaching staff, the Wilson Bulldogs have had great success on the high school level boasting numerous State, Conference and Division Championship Teams for both genders.
