Hammerheads spotted in Cape Town

Oakhill Prep 1st boys’ and girls’ water polo teams (also known as the Hammerheads) travelled to Cape Town to take part in a Water Polo tournament hosted by Cannons Creek at Pinelands High School. Our players where graciously hosted by Cannons Creek parents, being thoroughly spoilt.  The tour departed on Thursday 1 November.

On Saturday our teams visited Robben Island, a beautiful sunshine day with great views of Table Mountain and plenty of time to reminisce on how far our country has come. Then we got down to business. After a rusty start we improved with every match. The boys ended 9th and our girls’ team 7th. A number of close encounters could easily have been turned into wins if we had more exposure.

With Water Polo gaining momentum in SWD, I have no doubt that the future of the sport at Oakhill is bright. Special mention must be made concerning the players’ behaviour on tour; they certainly conducted themselves in the true spirit of Oakhill. It was indeed a pleasure to be associated with these young people.
