U18 Girls Crowned National Water Polo Plate Champions

The U18 Girls water polo team celebrated winning the English Schools Swimming Association (ESSA) National Water Polo Plate Championship after an impressive unbeaten run.

An intense contest saw the girls triumph undefeated in the final rounds, comprising 11 games against formidable opposition from five competitor schools including Bedford Modern and hosts Marlborough College.

Director of Sport Nicci Rayes said, “We are absolutely thrilled for the team for this fantastic achievement. Following their progression through the regional stages, they faced strong competition in the final rounds. They played really well throughout, with excellent teamwork and individual performances. Water polo is gaining huge momentum at the senior school across all ages, with participation from pupils in the lower senior years at a record high. Our U18 girls can be very proud of their hard work and commitment, and their success will undoubtedly inspire our younger players.”
