Wins against Cranbrook
With the second half of the water polo season well underway, the Waverley Water Polo teams have shown significant improvements in the pool. This weekend saw almost a whitewash of wins for Waverley against Cranbrook, with only the 16B’s narrowly missing out on a win and the 15As fighting until the end to even their game against Cranbrook with a 9-all finish.
Round 9 saw the Waverley 1st tick up their first win, with an impressive 26-0 defeat. The boys played exceptionally well with almost all players successfully scoring. Nikita Strbac was outstanding, scoring 9 of the 23 goals in the game. The 2nds also had their first win of the season.
The younger age groups are showing a lot of skill and promise in the pool, especially the 15As and 14Bs. It will be interesting to see how these young players develop over the course of their Water Polo career at Waverley College.
The 1st and 2nd teams have also been busy out of the pool running a fundraising BBQ for the Water Polo presentation day. The boys and a number of mothers from the Water Polo’s Supporter’s Club wore their best aprons and cooked a hot breakfast of bacon and egg rolls for students. All money raised from the BBQ is going towards helping cover the costs of the presentation day.
Water Polo Presentation Day will be held on 10 March at the College pool from 3pm to 5pm. The day is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the achievements of individual players and teams. The afternoon is a ticketed event. Tickets are available from: https://www.trybooking.com/
This event is compulsory for all players.
Donations requested for a raffle
We are also looking for donations for a raffle that will be held on the day. This is an important fundraiser for the Water Polo Supporter Group to continue running events like the Presentation and relies on the support of our fantastic community members. Any donations are welcome and can be organised with Miss Kite via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
