Under 14 Boys Win NZWP Fair Play Award
Well done to our Under 14 Boys Pan Pacs team who last night at the Premium New Zealand Water Polo Awards for 2018 took out the fair play award!
The Premium New Zealand Water Polo Awards recognise success and dedication from those involved in water polo both in and out of the pool. Waitakere members were nominated in four categories for the 2018 awards: Referee of the Year (Daniel Cameron), Volunteer of the Year (Lisa Rose), Fair Play Award (U14 Boys) and Male Player of the Year (Sid Dymond).
The Under 14 Boys were nominated based on their sportsmanship during the 2018 Pan Pacific Youth Water Polo Festival. In the last day of the competition, the Manawatu Under 14 Boys were left without a game as their opposition had to head back to their home city. Our boys, having played their final game, stepped up to play a fun final game with the Manawatu boys. The teams were mixed, and following a fantastic match (which you can watch back on our Facebook page here), the final score was 9-9!
Congratulations to our Under 14 Boys for taking out this award, and a huge thanks to Lian, Luke, Adam and Alene for looking after them last year. Well done also to Lisa, Sid and Daniel for their nominations!
