SHC Water Polo - NZSS Division 2 Tournament

During the Easter holidays our Senior Water Polo team attended the NZSS Division 2 Tournament in Auckland.  After only one loss in pool play they made the top six, but in their quarter final were beaten by just one point in the final seconds of the game by overall winners Carmel College.

Congratulations to all the players on a great tournament and a well-deserved 6th place at Div 2.  The SHC Lions were the only team from outside the Auckland/Waikato region, where all of the other 15 teams at NZSS Div 2 play against each other regularly. 

Special mention to Nic Medway our Team Manager who was nominated for the NZWP & Caltex "Good Sport" award for the amazing organisation and support she gives not only to SHC but to others in the water polo community.  Our Captain, Mikalah Hall also refereed the boys grade at the tournament and was the only  player/referee asked to do so.

As the team says goodbye to our Year 13s, Mikalah Hall, Isla Coe, Rebecca Goss and Rosemary Lee, who have been a stronghold of the team since they joined in Year 9, SHC Water Polo is in a good place with a base of very talented players coming through.  Thanks to Nic, Jacob Hogwood (Head Coach) and Milla Coe (Coaching Aide) for your dedication and support of SHC Water Polo.
