2017 has been a busy year for Canoe Polo. There have been three Hargest teams in the local competition and they have worked hard in training to improve their skills. Emily Jagoutz, Issac Flett, Ivo and Lucia Robold, Lena Huia, Brianna Morrison and Robbie Gill were all selected in Otago/Southland age group representative teams. A huge thank you to the Southland Canoe Polo Club for their ongoing support for our students and to Emily Jagoutz for refereeing many games for us and coaching a team. At the South Island Secondary Schools’ Competition our teams acquitted themselves well with third place in the Under 19 Girls’ (Captain Emily Jagoutz) and Under 19 Open (Captain Jordan Reid). Our Junior team (Captain Lena Huia) played with great heart and sportsmanship. Emily Jagoutz was named in the Tournament team. The skills and knowledge of our coach Alec Adamson set the players up to play their best. Congratulations to Emily Jagoutz on being a New Zealand Under 21 rep and all the best for trialling for the Worlds.
