KEKO MAGRINI

Kristos “Keko” Magrini, a 3-goaler from Argentina, began 2021 playing in the opening tournaments at IPC with Santa Clara, made up of two father-son duos — Matias and Keko Magrini, along with Luis and Lucas Escobar. Santa Clara won the first event of the season, defeating Beverly Polo to win the Joe Barry Memorial Cup. Magrini managed to score back-to-back goals in the final minutes, completing the impressive performance in Santa Clara’s 10-7 victory, which won him the MVP award. Magrini switched to Aspen for the Ylvisaker Cup, scoring five goals to help his team defeat Palm Beach Equine early in the tournament. His impressive play won him the MVP award in that match as well. Magrini capped the 2021 season at IPC with Pilot, joined by patron Curtis Pilot and legendary 10-goalers Gonzalito and Facundo Pieres. The team made it all the way to the semifinals of the U.S. Open. wellington the magazine | january 2022
