During the School holidays, six BGGS water polo teams attended the Water Polo Queensland State Titles at the Gold Coast. The girls spent the week leading into the event training with their coaches at the School pool before travelling to the coast. The first week saw our Under 12s, Under 15s and Under 16s compete against teams from across the state, with our Under 12s finishing sixth, Under 15s finishing eighth and Under 16s finishing ninth. A highlight of the first week included the BGGS Under 15s and Under 16s facing off with our Under 15s narrowly securing a win in the final quarter.
In the second session, the Under 13s, Under 14s and Under 18s worked hard and supported each other. All teams played extremely well and secured podium finishes. The Under 13s placed second after a hard fought gold medal match, while the Under 14s secured bronze over a tough Polo Bears team and the Under 18s defeated All Hallows’ School by one point after a brilliant penalty shot by Water Polo Captain, Finn Magill (12H), in the final few minutes of the match. Special mention to Astrid Thomas (9H) for being awarded Most Valuable Player of her age group and Violet Shaw (8L) for being awarded Most Valuable Goalie of her age group.
Thank you to our parents and incredible coaches for supporting the girls over the past two weeks; the event was a brilliant success and all teams had fun.
