Representative honours for QE water polo players

Four QE boys have been selected to represent Hertfordshire at a regional tournament. In addition, a boy from Year 9 and a Year 10 pupil are currently undergoing national water polo trials.

Sam Carling, of Year 10, along with Kavi Pau, Dinos Caryotis and Marcus Rodin from the year above all made it through the Hertfordshire County Water Polo trials, which took place over three weeks. They joined the squad of 13 players competing at the East Region Inter-Counties Tournament at the Luton Sports Village Pool during the half-term holiday.

Meanwhile, Louis Waloshek, of Year 9, who is undergoing trials for the England squad, spent half-term in Rome at a training camp. Alex Northcliffe, of Year 10, is also taking part in national trials.

All the boys met with the Headmaster, Neil Enright, to receive his congratulations. “I am very pleased with the individual achievements of the boys,” said Mr Enright. “They have all worked hard to progress in their sport, balancing their achievements against their academic studies. The School’s Martin Swimming Pool is an impressive facility and I have no doubt that it has played a part in enabling our water polo players to attain such a high standard.”
