National (72)

Rondebosch and Glenwood both recorded good wins last week which keeps them still at the top of the SA School Sports Rankings for this week with Selborne College remaining in the top three.

The St.Stithians team have been in brilliant form right through the 2017 season and it comes as little surprise that they remain the No.1 ranked team on this week’s SA School Sports Rankings.

Living up to their tag as the leading team in South Africa, Rondebosch put on a display of winning water polo at the Saints Invitational Tournament where they fought their way to the final match.

Rondebosch continue to command the leading position on this week’s SA School Sports Top 40 Rankings although they were forced to share the spoils with a determined SACS team last week.

St Stithians became the first team from Gauteng to win the prestigious Reddam Tournament when they faced the hosts in the final which they won 7-5 in what goes down as one of the matches of the year.

For the second consecutive year the Rondebosch team lifted the Cup at the SACS Tournament where they brushed aside the hosts in the final 5-2 in what turned out to be a wonderful display from two formidable teams.

Water Polo: Saints Continue to March On!

This St Stithians Girls’ College Water Polo “Dream” team have set new records by winning 9 GOLD MEDALS out of 12 tournaments they have played together. A silver medal and two 4th places complete the tally!

St. Stithians have entrenched their place as the leading Water Polo team in the country at this stage of the season and sit just above Stirling in first place on the SA School Rankings for another week.

The Old Petrian’s Tournament produced some spectacular water polo which saw Stirling getting the better of Crawford in the Cup Final match. However St. Stithians are leading the SA School Rankings for this week with just two losses so far this year.

A young Glenwood team leads the SA School Sports Water Polo Rankings for this week after a stellar showing at the Pretoria Boys High Festival last week and remain unbeaten scoring heavily in all their matches so far this season.

There was plenty of Water polo played during the last week with the Grey College ITEC Tournament taking centre stage.

The Water Polo season is in full swing and it is always exciting to see how the various teams will fare after losing some of their stars of last year.

A crunching 14-1 win by Rondebosch over Paul Roos Gym has cemented them at the top of the SA School Sports Water Polo rankings for this week with Bishops and Glenwood making a chase of it with their own victories over the weekend.

St Stithians enjoyed a wonderful home tournament which has helped them consolidate their status as one of the powerhouses in school water polo this year.

St Stithians hosted a highly successful Saints U18 Invitational Tournament last week which pitted some of the biggest names in SA Schools water polo against each other.

Rondebosch slugged it out with some of the finest teams in the country to set up a meeting with a strong Glenwood side in the Finals of the SAC Tournament. In a classic final Rondebosch showed their class as they edged out the KZN outfit to occupy the second slot in this week’s Rankings.

Stirling High turned up at the 2016 Co-Ed Tournament during the past week and simply blew the opposition away with a powerfully clinical display of water polo which has help keep them way out in front on the SA Schools Top 30 Rankings.

The biggest difference between water polo and most other team sports is that every player is constantly moving. Using the “eggbeater” motion of treading water, the six players and the goalie on each team must uphold the cardinal rule of water polo, which is to never touch the bottom of the pool with their feet.

The leading team in South Africa on this week’s SA School Sports Rankings is Clifton who has once again been in brilliant form in 2016.

Waterpolo: Results for this week: 25/09/2016

The waterpolo season has started with a mighty splash and teams from all around the country gathered to participate in some of the sports most high profile events over the weekend.

After a highly successful KES Water Polo Tournament which attracted the majority of the leading teams in the country, the SA Schools Top 40 Rankings has enjoyed some vigorous movement on the table.

It is a very tightly bunched top Ten this week on the SA Schools Rankings with St Johns College at the top after an unbeaten run of 11 matches..

This week’s SA Schools Water Polo Rankings for Girl’s sees several teams moving up the table after the latest round of results have been submitted.

Last weekend,St Peter’s College hosted the 12th annual Old Petrian’s water polo tournament from 19 February – 21 February 2016 for open girls. Twenty eight schools across the country and one from Zimbabwe participated in the prestigious event at the Wahoo Aquatics centre and St Peter’s Girls Prep’s pool. Water polo is a highly competitive sport, and it was pleasing to see so many schools encouraging their girls to excel in the game.

The 2016 Old Petrian’s Tournament was the showpiece event last week with several of the big names in SA School Water Polo taking part. Stirling hang on to the top spot on the SA Schools Rankings but Durban Girls College have dramatically closed the gap on them.
