ABOUT US

 
Eagles Water Polo team was started in 2008.  The Wildcat (Wheeler) Water Polo team  wanted to dontate their old goals and Coach Weaver gracioulsy accepted.  Coach Porter (Asst. Swimming Coach) and her husband Corey Porter traveled to the Cobb Aquatic Center to pick them up.  Shortly after, our team was invited to come play at Dynamo to see what water polo was all about.  Seven Collins Hill swimmers,Coach Weaver and Porter attended, we scored 1 goal! The swimmers and coaches were hooked and ready to learn!  Phong Nguyen (CHHS Swimmer, Class of 2007) had experience playing, and was gracious enough to coach the team during the Summer of 2008.

After many grueling practices the team was ready to attempt to play a game.  We traveled to Georgia Tech to play with the Altanta Trout Water Polo Team.  This is where the Eagles met Coach Collins who was then recruited to help coach our team for the fall season. The Trout team donated some old blue and white caps and a few balls and we were ready to go!

and took home the title of GHSWPA State Champions!
