Below are the 2016 Water Polo results... Watch this space for more information regarding 2017.

 

2016 Season Overview

Water Polo is one of our strongest sports at Mount Maunganui college with six of our students being selected in New Zealand representative teams. Our Senior A Boys team finished 8th in the premier Division at the NZSS Championships. The team has been invited to play in a transtasman tournament in December which includes the top New Zealand and Australian school teams. Our Senior A Girls team finished 5th in the Premier Division in the NZSS Championships and top ranked school outside of Auckland. These outstanding results were achieved with very young sides and both teams are losing only a few year 13 students for the 2017 season.

Many of our top Waterpolo students play over winter for the Tauranga Waterpolo Club were at the National Championships the U16 Boys team won Gold and the U16 Girls team won Silver with Shinae Carrington being named in the Tournament team alongside Bae Fountain who was named Boys most Valuable Player.

 

Water Polo National Championships: Senior A Boy's and Girl's

During the term two holidays Mount Maunganui College Senior A boy's and girl's water polo teams competed at the water polo nationals championships held in Wellington. The girl's played exceptionally well and just missed the opportunity to play in the top four, losing the quarterfinal to St Cuthbert's College by two goals. In their final game, the girls beat Kristin College by three goals, placing them fifth in New Zealand. The team has improved immensely since competing in the North Island championships where they placed12th overall. Mount Maunganui College boy's team placed eighth overall, which was a great performance for such a young team.
