Girls Water Polo (Issue 2 2018 Sport)
Written on the 12 April 2018
Water Polo again proved a popular sport in Term 1 for the girls at SHC. We entered 3 teams into the Catholic Girls Water Polo competition for 2018. These teams, composed of predominantly boarders and a few day students, made their way to Adelaide Aquatic Centre each Thursday for competition with coaches Ms Eaton, Mr Wright and Mr Kelly leading the charge.
SHC faced some tough competition throughout the term and improved dramatically as the season progressed. 2 of the 3 teams qualified for Finals with the SHC2 side competing for the Open C Premiership. A hard fought final match against St Peters saw the SHC2 side take out second place scoring 3 goals to St Peters 10. The SHC1 side had a close game against Loreto going down 3 - 5 to finish in 4th place in the Open B competition.
Although the Year 10 team did not make finals, the team showed promising skills and came together well as a team. The girls spirits were always high which made the season much more worthwhile and enjoyable.
A huge thank you to the coaching staff for helping each week run smoothly and well done to all the girls involved!
