Think You Know About Water Polo? Try the July 11 CWPA Trivia Question

BRIDGEPORT, Pa. -- Think you know all there is about water polo and the history of the Collegiate Water Polo Association?  Try this week's trivia question and see if you can prove it.

This is not a question you can look up in the league's media guide - so no cheating.  This one depends on your knowledge of the sport's history, and a little bit of luck, in commemoration of the upcoming Olympic Games next year in London.

Ready to give it a try? 

Men's water polo at the Olympics was the first team sport introduced at the 1900 games.  Six other team sports were introduced at that Olympic games along with water polo. Polo (with horses), soccer and rowing were among the six.  Name the other three.

June 11 Trivia Question

Which institution/college team has produced (aka graduated) the most CWPA varsity head water polo coaches over the past 10 years?
