Junior Waterpolo makes a splash

Its great to be back at the pool after a long hiatus, and spirits were high amongst all the teams. Training has been enjoyable but we finally got to put those skills into action and here are the results.

The Junior A team had a tough first game back against WBHS and while they lost 17-0, the score doesn’t reflect how hard the boys had to work against our girls. These A grade games in Term 3 are against mainly all boys teams and while hard, they will build resilience for other competitions later in the year. Our girls learn skills in fast paced, physically demanding games where they never give up and show great strength. Well done – we are proud of you!

The Junior B team was up against Kristin B and it was a nail-biting game from the start, with the girls stealing the ball and shooting a goal within the first 2 mins.  Kristin fought back strongly and the girls trailed by 1 point for the first 3 quarters until the final quarter where they pulled ahead to win the game 10-8.  For a team that have never played together before, they blended well and displayed strong attack and defense skills, which looks for a promising season ahead.
