They are one of the strongest girl’s teams I’ve ever had the opportunity to coach. They are pretty special and all contributed to the win. They rode the horses really well and worked together as a team. I’m extremely proud of them.”

Champions Maddie Grant and Sophie Grant plus runner-up Cassidy Wood and Hillside Farm Polo Club’s Emma Sbragia were awarded as All-Stars. Hillside PC’s Sydney Weise received the Sportsmanship Prize. And Sparkles, owned by Virginia Polo Inc., was chosen as Best Playing Pony.
