Welcome back to our 1st Water Polo team who attended and participated in the Old Petrian’s Tournament, Johannesburg. The team was accompanied by Coach Devon Card and Ms Goble.
‘The First Girls’ Water Polo Team set off before dawn to Johannesburg for the Old Petrian’s Water Polo Tournament which draws 28 teams from all around Southern Africa. Despite their exhaustion, they had their first game against Crawford which was a very tough start to the weekend.
We had the welcome dinner where the girls learnt to street dance and had a huge amount of fun and delicious food at the food stalls.
Unfortunately for the team, our goalie woke up on Friday morning feeling very unwell, but she pushed through for the first game of the day against Roedean. She was unable to play the rest of the games of the tournament but cheered on from the side lines.
The team was not discouraged by this setback and instead used it to motivate themselves to play some of the best water polo that they have played. Despite this, we let in too many goals and therefore struggled to win our pool matches.
Between the lightning delays and the losses, the team remained upbeat and had many laughs playing Mafia with their coaches on the side of the pool, in restaurants and in the hotel conference room. The highlights of the tour included our incredibly tight pool games against DSG (lost 6-5) and Collegiate (lost 8-5) where the team showed resilience and spirit throughout. Not even the 4-hour return flight delay would put a dampener on what was one of the most memorable and fun polo tours.”

Jodie Williams (Grade 11) and Waterford Grandslam competed for RGHS at SanesaQ2 Prelim Dressage and Prix Caprilli, on Sunday, achieving three first places and a fourth place (the competition was very stiff, with 31 entrants in total).
