A total of 283 people participated as part of 19 teams, far surpassing the planning committee’s goal of 200 participants.
The ceremony was conducted by Dr. BJ Douglass, assistant professor in the Social and Behavioral Sciences Department and faculty adviser to the club.

Wohlschlegel added, “We also get to meet a lot of really amazing people through being on the polo team, like when we were at Yale, we met professional polo players who were there. We’ve also gotten a lot of opportunities to go to big polo games. The door is just open with this sport and it’s really quite amazing, the little community that polo has.”
