Waterpolo challengeThe U16As suffered a loss against Somerset College (10-2) in a disappointing game by their standards. It is also important to note that there were eventually no substitutes on the bench and the team therefore rapidly ran out of energy without replacement players to share the load. Layla Adams and Jade Yardin scored a spectacular goal each in the 2nd and 3rd chukka respectively and the team must be congratulated on their efforts to keep trying. We urge all waterpolo girls to be available and committed to the Friday fixtures as their absence is very noticeable in a tough game such as this one.

The Second Team played Somerset College and won 6 – 5 in a tightly contested game. Most valuable Player goes to Aneeqah Davids who plays goalie and blocked some amazing attempts at goals. Her long passes are also improving drastically and so is her confidence. We look forward to growing even stronger as a team and keeping up our winning streak as we keep training and working towards our final goal with Oakhill in sight.

To end off our afternoon of Waterpolo, the First Team were held to a 6-all draw to their opposition. Besides being a couple of players short owing to injuries, our team didn’t have the confidence to realise that the game was ours. Most Valuable Player goes to Maryam Adams for always working extremely hard in the pool and Melissa Makinson for getting in and putting in 110% even though she was not feeling well.

We will take this match as a learning experience as we work towards St Peter’s in February.
