Waterpolo – South Island Secondary Schools Championships


Boys’ High entered two teams in the South Island Secondary Schools Waterpolo Championships held here in Christchurch from 25 – 28 March.

In Pool A the CBHS A team was up against St Bede’s A, King’s High School (Dunedin), Verdon College, St Andrew’s College and Shirley Boys’ B

The CBHS B team competed against Christ’s College, Burnside High, Shirley Boys’ A, St Bede’s B and a Mainland selection

Our A team was unlucky to be on the same side of the draw as a very good St Bede’s team, and after a semi final loss to Bede’s 5 – 8 the boys were resigned to a 3rd and 4th place play -off. A number of the CBHS boys were also involved in the junior waterpolo programme back in Term 4 of 2020 and the long season finally caught up with the boys in the 2 – 9 defeat to Christs College. CBHS B had a big win 18 – 1 over Shirley Boys in the play-off for 11th and 12th.
