Chisipite Senior Retains Mermaids Cup

Chisipite Senior School’s water polo ¬†triumphed at Falcon College this weekend (7-8 March 2015) retaining the Mermaids Cup which they won at home in 2014. Three schools, Chisipite, Hellenic Academy, and Peterhouse Girls travelled to Matabeleland where Bulawayo based Girls College rounded out the competition. Each school brought a full complement of U14, U15, U17 and first teams to play in the tournament.


Chisipite’s biggest challenge for the cup came from Hellenic, who finished second in the tournament. Hellenic’s four teams were all undefeated against both Peterhouse and Girls College. However, Hellenic’s first team suffered¬†a heavy 9-0 thrashing by Chisipite.

Although Chisipite won the overall trophy for the tournament, Hellenic’s U15 team deserves special mention for great play that saw them go undefeated throughout the tournament. Hellenic U15 beat Girls College 12-4, Peterhouse 12-0 and Chisipite 10-4.
