Men’s Water Polo Hosts Conference Championship This Weekend

If you decided to be THAT guy or girl staying in State College this weekend, you are probably looking for something to give you an excuse to get yourself out of your empty apartment.

Well, look no further.

The Penn State men’s water polo team will be hosting the conference championship this weekend. Though Water Polo might not seem like the most interesting of sports, its surprisingly enthralling. If you didn’t get a chance to be patriotic this summer and watch team USA kick butt in both men’s and women’s water polo, take this chance to watch Penn State do the same.

The Men’s Water Polo team is currently ranked #1 in the Western division of the Mid-Atlantic conference, remaining undefeated in league play thus far. Though recently ranked 20th in the nation, the water polo team has since defeated 2nd ranked Bucknell, so their ranking should be improving significantly.

Penn State will play in three games during the tournament, with the last one potentially being the conference championship on Sunday at 11:20am. Penn State is considered the favorite of the weekend, and winning the championship would mean they would travel to Oregon State University for the National Championship on November 8th.

Admission for the event this weekend is free for students (bonus!). For more information you can visit their website here.
