Greeting Buckeye Polo Fans! As our fundraiser comes to a close, we have one final update, along with a big final push to get us closer to our goal. We want to start by saying thank you to all of the people who have donated and supported our team throughout this season; your impact goes much farther than you know and every contribution gives the team more opportunities to travel, buy new equipment, and host tournaments.
This past weekend the Buckeyes traveled to Purdue where they battled it out in the Big 10 Championships. On Saturday, we were able to beat Indiana (14-6) and Wisconsin (17-13), putting us in the Big 10 Championship game on Sunday against Michigan State. The Bucks have come up against MSU a couple times throughout the season and had struggled against them, but felt confident entering the game. The Buckeyes came out of the gate hot, winning the first quarter 4-3, however, MSU's bench was simply much deeper. After a hard fought battle and a heart breaking ending, Ohio State fell to Michigan State 10-13, ending our season.
The team is proud of what we were able to accomplish in our first year in the Big 10, and know that the move to a new conference will be good for the team in the long run, even if it did not pan out this year. We want to sincerely thank all of you for following us on this journey. As there are only 4 days left in the fundraiser, we would like to ask that everyone share our page with any friends, family members, or OSU fans that would be interested in hearing our story or supporting us.
Check out some pictures from the tournament below, don't forget to share our page in these last few days, and Go Bucks!
