Polo Club Names '09 Standouts

The Newport Polo Club named the '09 recipients for its annual Sportsmanship and Most Improved Player Awards at the end-of-season Players Dinner. In a vote by the members of the Newport Polo Club, two individuals were distinguished by their peers for achievement and performance in the sport of polo over the course of the past season.

Most Improved Player - the player who demonstrated the greatest improvement over the course of the season, compared to their level of play in the previous season, and overall improvement above their previous level of play, independent of the player's USPA handicap rating. The most votes went to Heather Rasulis, shown above with Polo Manager Dave Markell and Polo Club President Dan Keating.

Sportsmanship Award - the player who demonstrated the highest form of sportsmanship and good character on and off the field. The most votes went to Dave Carrington, shown above with Polo Manager Dave Markell and Polo Club President Dan Keating.

Silver bowls bearing the names of the newest and all past recipients were presented on the occasion. Past recipients of the Most Improved Player Award are: Paul Rice (’04), Wayne Gordon (’05), Sam Shore (’06), Jonas Mikolich (’07) and Minnie Keating ('08). Past recipients of the Sportsmanship Award are: Jim Zynsky (’04), Jonathan Kaye/Jim Zynsky (’05), Jackie Shore/Jim Zynsky (’06), Jonathan Kaye (’07) and Steve Smith ('08).
