From Thursday the 23rd to Sunday the 26th of November the Junior A Water Polo team played in Division 2 of the North Island Junior Schools tournament in Auckland.

They had wins in pool play over Hamilton Boys’ B 8-3, St Pats Town B 7-4, Long Bay College 8-9, and drew with Scared Heart College 3 all. 

A comfortable quarter final victory 8-2 over Auckland Grammar B was followed by another comfortable 7-4 victory over Westlake Boys B in the semi-final.

The final against Mt Maunganui College was hard fought but unfortunately the boys were unable to put away their chances and lost 2-1.

Jake Thompson top scored with 20 goals, followed by Ryan Cutler with 19.

The silver medal was the school’s best ever performance in this competition. Now a number of these young men look forward to the Under 14 National Championships later this month.

Team: Mace Apperley, Ryan Cutler, Trent Forman, Leo Gordon, Levi Holman, Rhys Ransom, Jake Thompson (c), Levi Timms, Zac Tutty.
