Undefeated UM Polo Team
Chuck Bernard and Jack Speedy Evans were part of the University of Miami polo team which was undefeated in tournament play from 1948-1951. Polo, however, was not to be a part of the University of Miami's future. The sport did not draw spectators and even with three undefeated years, the program posted a $15,000 deficit in 1950. The team, although unmatched and undefeated, was also unwanted. It was terminated in 1951.
