King­wood girls start strong in wa­ter­polo sea­son

Grocott's Mail - - SPORT - STAFF RE­PORTER

The Kingswood 1st Girls’ Wa­ter Polo team had a for­mi­da­ble start to the Wa­ter Polo sea­son on Satur­day 27 Jan­uary. Com­ing off the De­cem­ber hol­i­days, which saw 11 of the 1st team girls in pro­vin­cial teams at the SA Schools Cham­pi­onships, the Kingswood side was as keen to make a bold state­ment in the lead up to the St Peter’s Tour­na­ment in March.

In what promised to be an ex­cit­ing fes­ti­val of Wa­ter Polo, Col­le­giate Girls High School trav­elled to Gra­ham­stown to play a full set of fix­tures against both Kingswood and DSG. There­after, Kingswood and DSG would con­tinue their friendly ri­valry in the pool, also play­ing a full set of fix­tures against each other. All through the age-groups, matches were tightly con­tested, how­ever it was at 1st team level that things re­ally be­came com­pet­i­tive.
