Congratulations on the outstanding results and superb effort by all players
Dio had two teams travel to compete in the Year 7 & 8 North Islands Water Polo Champs, which were held in Tauranga on the 12–15th November.
Dio Blue demonstrated their development throughout the whole tournament, as they continued to build upon skills they had learnt previously in the year, and apply them in game situations. The team played every game with a lot of heart and determination which was amazing to see.
Dio White had a fantastic tournament that had many highs and lows. The girls battled their way all through pool play to make it to the final vs Sacred Heart College. At the end of regulation time the final score was 2-2 with both teams battling hard through all four quarters. Unfortunately the girls lost the penalty shootout, however winning the silver medal in the pinnacle event of the Year 7&8 season is a great success.
Congratulations to all of our year 7 & 8 Water Polo players on a successful season.
Dio White: Paige Ellis, Abby Welsh, Sophie O’Leary, Emily Freeman, Lucy Gilleece, Madi Clark, Annie McNally, Holly Bricklebank, Violet Smith
Dio Blue: Charlie Sawden, Felicity Tongue, Emma Sisam, Amelie Schnauer, Ashley Cheeseman, Sophie Marshall, Zara Johannink, Mika Kurosawa, Aimee Horton, Monique Niehaus, Frankie Dodunski
