Zimbabwe Side To Face Junior Springboks Named

A Zimbabwe Waterpolo girls squad was announced as the Warwick Smith Cup tournament came to a close on Sunday (February 9) afternoon at Chisipite Senior School.

The Cup tournament doubled as selection trials for the national U18 girls squad for waterpolo. Running over two days, the event gave coaches and selectors room to assess the girls and select a team. Three of the girls named have some international experience under their belts as they were part of the girls team that performed well at the South African IPT in East London last December. These are Savannah Stead, Natasha Lawson and Sarah Gentleman.

The selected team is set to travel across the Limpopo to play a three-test series against the Junior Springboks of South Africa in March.
