Marist Double GOLD at Under 18 Nationals

Marist’s youth teams produced the goods for the New Zealand Water Polo Under 18 National Championships that wrapped up in Auckland on Sunday.
In a repeat of their 2015 under 16 titles, the Auckland club bagged a double with both their under 18 boys and girls sides taking the top spot in the finals at Diocesan Aquatic Centre on Sunday afternoon.

22 teams took part in the championships that spanned four days and three venues.

North Harbour girls and Tauranga boys took the bronze medals from Hibiscus Coast and Waikato, respectively. It’s the first time the Under 18 National Championships have been held since 2012, where North Harbour took a double title. The championships were reintroduced in 2017, nullifying the Under 19 National Championships held in 2013 and 2015. The inagural Under 21 National Championships were held from July 9-11 2017.
