Parker C. Pearce
Parker grew up in Monkton foxhunting with EHHC, eventing, and showing jumpers locally. He played interscholastic polo for the Maryland Boys, coached by Kelly Wells. Throughout high school, the Maryland Boys brought home two National Championship titles. However, his polo roots go back to his great grandfather, A. Parker Hall, captain of the Princeton Polo Team in 1922, who led the Tigers to victory in the first Arena Polo Intercollegiate National Men’s Championship. Parker is a Cum Laude graduate of the Gilman School and will attend the University of Virginia, where he intends to study business and play for the men’s polo team. When not playing polo, his passion for outdoors will find him bird hunting, golfing, or painting landscapes.
