Point Loma Nazarene San Diego, California Home club: Lakeside Polo Club Coach: Nicole Bankhead President: Molly Agee Intercollegiate/Interscholastic: How d id you get started in polo? Molly Agee: I grew up doing eventing and showing hunter jumpers. My stepdad, Cary Burch, introduced me to polo when I was very young and I would play pee-wee polo in the desert at Eldorado Polo Club. It wasn't until sixth grade when I decided to take polo more seriously and play consistently for the Poway interscholastic team. I/I: What prompted you to start a polo club at Point Loma? MA: I always have dreamed of playing intercollegiate polo. There were no intercollegiate teams in San Diego, which motivated me to start one. Introducing polo to new people is so rewarding and it's amazing to see arena polo continue to grow in San Diego. I/I: Can you tell us something unique about Point Loma you want prospective students to know about? MA: Point Loma is a small Christian university that has one of the most beautiful college campuses in California. Our campus is located right on Sunset Cliffs Natural Park and overlooks the ocean. I/I: What advice do you have for other new teams who are trying to get started? MA: Starting the team and finding members may initially seem overwhelming. It's important to remember what your goal is in the end and what you will eventually accomplish! Students at Point Loma learn the ropes. The school now has a collegiate program.
