A polo team from Philadelphia made history in central Virginia on Sunday when they became the first all African-American team to win a national title.
The Cowtown-Work to Ride team took home the gold after beating out the crew from Baltimore in the National Interscholastic Championship at the Virginia Polo Center.
The top polo players say it feels great to be a part of this monumental achievement in their sport.
Brandon Rease, of the winning team said, “If you get involved with it and want to do really good in it, you just practice every day and, a sport is a sport, no matter if it’s for black, white, anything.”
This was the 42nd year for the tournament. The Philly team also had to beat out groups from California, Texas and Canada to be named the champions.
