This year the city of San Marcos, Texas was proud to host the 2012 Kayak Polo National Championships at Rio Vista Park. The Austin Aquabats put the event on and they dominated the competition as well. They placed 1st in division A and B, beating out teams from all over the United States including the San Francisco Pelicans and the New York Hammerheads. I attended the event and thought it was very cool to see the park I have been going to for years transformed with floating docks and goal posts with nets into an arena of sorts. The games were fast paced, intense, and very entertaining as a spectator. All of the people were very friendly and the atmosphere was great. It will be very interesting to see where this sport goes in the coming years as more people become aware of the sport! Enjoy the pictures!
