Auckland Teams Dominate at Under 14 Nationals

The New Zealand Water Polo Under 14 National Championships were held in Tauranga and Wellington last week, with both cities seeing impressive performances from our Auckland based teams.


10 of the 12 medals won will be making their way to the City of Sails, with North Harbour and Atlantis topping the medal tally with 3 each. The event marks the end of a long season for our Under 14 teams, which began back in June with New Zealand Water Polo’s flagship event, the Pan Pacific Youth Water Polo Festival.

Congratulations to the following Aucklanders who received MVP awards:

  • Andrei Soldatovic, MVP Div 1 Boys

  • Ava Cooper, MVP Div 1 Girls

  • Josh Sumner, MV Goalie, Div 1 Boys

  • Islay Martin-Hill, MV Goalie, Div 1 Girls

  • William Catlin, MVP Div 2 Boys

  • Holly MacDonald, MVP Div 2 Girls

  • Sophie Gardiner, MV Goalie Div 2 Girls

The 2019 Under 14 Auckland Water Polo league will take place in Term 3, and we look forward to seeing what our clubs have on offer!
