Hammerheads spotted in Cape Town

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.
