Photos from the USPA I/I Midstates Preliminary Regional Tournament

The Purdue Polo Club attended the USPA Midstates Preliminary Regional Tournament this past weekend.  According to the USPA, the last time a Purdue team attended a regional tournament was in 2004!  The womens varsity faced tough competition from the UPenn team, but they played hard and had a great time.  Thanks to the USPA, Derbyshire Stables, University of Pennsylvania, Michigan State University, University of Michigan, and the University of Louisville for a great tournament weekend!  Photos from the game against UPenn are below:
