Water Polo Celebrations

March 31, 2014 | Girls’ College

It has been an exciting season for our Water polo girls this year.  Our grateful thanks go to Mrs Melanie Morrison who ably managed the sides for St Stithians Girls' College this season.

Some of the results and highlights have been as follows:

  • Old Mutual Roedean Cup - placed 3rd and won R5000 for our charity - Friends of Alexandra.  (A group of girls who learn to swim at our school on Sunday mornings - taught by our 1st team water polo players under the guidance of Mr Claudio Marangoni, Mrs Mel Morrison and Mrs Wendy Robinson.
  • Three of our girls were selected for the Tournament Team:  Robyn Morrison, Natasha Assenmacher and Bianca Prinsloo.
  • The highlight of the second half of the season was the participation in the U15 Shaun Fuchs Tournament where our team placed 6th as well as the 1st team Old Petrians Tournament where our young side was ranked 15th out of many sides from across South Africa.  Our U14s are our most promising side who have not lost a league game this season.
  • Natasha Assenmacher was elected as the Vice Captain of the U19 Currie Cup Gauteng side.
