On Friday 28 October 2016, Wynberg and Rustenburg squared up against each other in the Waterpolo pool. The afternoon started off with the U16B’s suffering a 6-2 loss to extremely determined and driven opposition. The girls played their hearts out until the last second, but struggled to achieve result they truly deserved.

The Second Team earned the second win of their 4th term campaign, beating Rustenberg 9 – 1. Their defence improved significantly, but they were still struggling to win the starting possession. Player of the Game goes to Keightly Walsh who contributed 3 goals to the score. We look forward to seeing this team growing even stronger during  the rest of the season.

Our U16A team unfortunately lost 15-1 to some incredibly strong opposition. The very fit Rustenburg team clearly came to show their skills and dedication to the sport. Camryn Beaton and Camryn Ducroq were forces to be reckoned with and performed very well. Jordan Mans (our goalie) stayed strong and determined throughout the game. As the season is still young, the team will focus on fitness in order to better their skills.

The afternoon ended off on a high with the 1st team claiming a second victory of the week against the visitors. Calling the match intense and nail-biting is a slight understatement, as the result ended 4-3 in Wynberg’s favour, after coming into the 4th chukka 4-2 up and having to defend their lead. The crowd cheered the girls on every step of the way and supported in full force. Thank you to the 2017 School Council who formed their own spirit team and were behind our girls 100%.

Players of the game include the goal scorers, Cayleigh Hanekom, Melissa Makinson and Sonja Stock, as well as the goalkeepers, Britt Gutuza and Megan De Beer for putting their bodies on the line and making some amazing saves to keep the team in the game.

The grade 11 members of the First Team will wear black bands for the remainder of the season, in honour of Breast Cancer Awareness month and in Kirsten Schultz’ memory. We hope to continue to hold Wynberg’s name high with many more hard-fought victories and fantastic sportsmanship.
