St Andrew’s College Water Polo 17/18 January 2019

Jan 22, 2019

The St Andrew’s College U14A, U15A and 1st water polo teams travelled to Grey High School in Port Elizabeth this past weekend to participate in the Grey High School Water Polo Festival. It was a great way to start this season with each team playing four games over the weekend. It was also a “baptism of fire” for the coaches, players and refs as all tried to get used to the new rules.
