News Release—Oak Point, Texas. Prestonwood Polo & Country club ended its most successful fall season ever with two exciting back-to-back tournaments, the 380 Guide Community Challenge Cup and the USPA Hall of Fame Challenge Cup. The tournaments were 4-6 goal but they played liked 10-goal, each team had four strong players that could run, bump and hit! The tournaments were played back-to-back Saturday October 23 thru Saturday November 13 in order to create a seeding for the Hall of Fame Cup so the best two teams would have the best chance of making the final. The 380 Community Challenge Cup was created in 2008 for the communities in the Highway 380 corridor of north Texas and their local community magazine the 380 Guide, each team represents one of the communities and their fans come out to cheer them on. The USPA Hall of Fame Challenge Cup was created in 2006 to benefit the Museum of Polo and Hall and awarded to Prestonwood Polo Club in 2010. The teams were: Cross Oaks: Charles Levesque (A), Barry Zindel (1), Lucio Chavez (1) and Sain Joseph (2); Savannah: Sidro Olivas (3), Dana Drury (B), Bob McCloskey (1), Pipa Sifuentes (2) and alertnate Carrie Spence (B); Providence: Katherine Campos (A), George Olivas (4), Wyatt Myr (1), Steve Gilchrist (B), and alternates Ignacio Socas (3) and Adnan Sardar (A); Eagles Landing: Don Stemaly (A), Jay Winborn (A), Luke Reed (2) and Vaughn Miller (2).

Savannah and Cross Oaks made it to both finals after hard fought close games. The 380 Guide Cup final was the feature match of Polo on the Midway charity event Saturday October 30 for the Children’s advocacy center of Denton and over 800 spectators was attended the match. They were treated to a great game as Cross Oaks and Savannah tied but Cross Oaks won on a ˝ goal handicap. Dana Drury was amateur MVP and had a great game making several key plays. Two weeks later the USPA Hall of Fame Cup final was played again between Cross Oaks and Savannah but they had to get past a re-charged Eagles Landing team the week before, both games were close wins by 1 goal or a ˝ goal. The final was exciting but was all Savannah as they jumped out to an early lead on some spectacular goals my Sidro Olivas and won 7-5, afterwards Prestonwood held its season ending party and gave out its year-end awards.
