In a first for a provincial schools’ water polo association in South Africa, Western Province will be sending an U14 girls’ team to participate in the 2018 Pan Pacific Youth Water Polo Festival in Auckland New Zealand from 13 to 16 July.

This age group were gold medal winners in the annual Inter-Provincial Tournament in December 2017, and it was deemed appropriate that they were good enough to test themselves in the largest water polo event in the southern hemisphere.

Congratulations to the following players and team management:

Stellar Binneman (GK)
Laurie Williams
Hayley Hansen
Lola Bechis-Finotto
Tanna Harrod
Jordan Catto
Milla Kanigowska
Jo Williams
Jessica Forbay
Rachel Jeffery
Nina Williams
Jade Velosa
Tyra Penney.

The coaching and management team are:
Head coach – Matt Logan
Assistant coach – Carey Singer
Manager : Jessica Adriaan

The team will depart Cape Town on 5 and return 19 July.
