The competition in Rockhampton, QLD, was strong, but both WA teams weren’t shaken. Our men’s team, came together quickly and finished out the competition in 5th. Whilst the women proved WA is still here and still going strong walking away with a convincing 3rd place Bronze.
The talent coming out of WA Country was on show with Marko Draksimović (Peel) scoring Goalie of the Tournament also making the team to represent Australian Country in the 2018 Princess Chulabhorn Cup. Both men’s and women’s teams will compete across four days starting from November 22 in Thailand at Bangkok’s Chulabhorn Aquatic Club.
Marko wasn’t the only selection to be made for the team, with fellow teammate Jayden Horne (Bunbury), and Caitlin Read (Peel) being selected.
In 2019, the WA Country Championships are to be hosted by Busselton WP in March, and the Australian Country Championships to be held in May, at the Gold Coast, QLD. We’re excited for the season ahead as clubs look to build talent and expand water polo across WA regions.
