The regular rounds in the Winter Competition are now done, and we have a week of finals ahead, covering all grades. Our two men’s teams have both made it into the Grand Final games – so well done boys, a fantastic result! Let’s hope for one more big effort – to get you across the line and onto the winner’s podium! The women’s results are still hanging in the balance, with our 18s (in WSL2) and our YthG still in with an (administrative) chance to make the GF game… so stay tuned for an update on that. Unfortunately, our WSL1s, WSL2s and WSL3s have missed out.

IN THE NEWS
The Athlete Development Program (ADP) run by Waterpolo Victoria will field a team in the forthcoming Trans Tasman Challenge, being held in Brisbane in early July. This new tournament will showcase state teams and a representative team from New Zealand. Of the 11 players chosen from Victoria’s ADP to compete – 5 are Essendon girls. Congratulations to Claire O’Callaghan, Millie Pullyblank, Georgina Lang, Lily Pridham and Sarah Chatterton. We wish the girls well as they compete in this inaugural event. The Victorian East Coast Challenge team (U14s) will also travel to Brisbane in early July to compete against other state teams. We have 2 Essendon girls in that squad, in Ashleigh Zibell and Sheridan Kavanagh (reserve player). So there will be plenty of familiar faces in BrisVegas come July! Good luck ladies!
