Boys Water Polo: The First Rankings for 2019

Still very early days in the 2019 Water Polo season with several of the big teams yet to play enough matches to get included on this year’s rankings but in another week or two we can expect many of the usual suspects heading to the top of the table.

The ITEC Grey College Water Polo was the big event this past week with several of the leading teams in action which contributed to a high level tournament.

The Water Polo season is up and running and it promises to be another highly competitive season. Here are this week’s results from around the pools of SA:

Water Polo: Pearson Riding the Manthe Wave

Within minutes of talking water polo – and Pearson water polo in particular – one becomes as enthralled in the journey as does one “Mr Pearson Water Polo and Aquatics” the affable Luke Manthe.

Virtually from the start of the 2018 season there has been one team that has been shining above the rest in the water polo pools across the country. It therefore comes as no surprise that Pearson finish the year as the No.1 Water Polo team in South Africa after completing a terrific season.

In has turned out to be a two horse race for the Number 1 spot on the SA School Sports Top 40 Water Polo Rankings for Boys with the powerhouses of Clifton and Rondebosch battling their way through the season.

There was yet another dominant display from the girls from Pearson as they proved just why many view them as the finest team in SA Schools Water Polo.

Pearson maintain a firm grip on this week’s No.1 spot on the SA School Sports Water Polo Top 30 Rankings after a dominant display at the recent Co-Ed Tournament.

Several teams have prospered from the past two week’s matches and have made a charge on this week’s Boy’s Water Polo Top 40 Rankings.

Water Polo: Rondebosch Wins SACS Cup

 This past weekend (30 September- 2nd October) , schools from around South Africa competed in one of the country’s most prestigious water polo tournaments for the SACS u19 Cup.

Clifton continue to show why they are considered one of the powerhouses in SA Schools Water Polo as they lead this week’s rankings following a good show of form in recent matches.

Pearson proved they are ready to sign off on the 2018 season the same way they signed on when they consolidated they position as the leading water polo team in the country at the recent Reddam Tournament.

28 of Southern Africa’s top water polo schools took part in the St Peter’s College Old Petrian’s U19 Girls Water Polo Tournament last week which once again delivered on excitement and passion.

Boy's Water Polo Rankings: 28/02/2018

St John’s College hits the front on this week’s SA School Sports Top 30 Rankings which is a good reward for a side that has played some enterprising Water Polo and rarely been tested so far this season.

Boy's Water Polo Rankings: 21/02/2018

St John’s College leap up the table after some excellent results of late and there are signs that the JHB powerhouse has found their form of a season or two back and will be a force to be reckoned with in 2018.

A solid showing by Roedean at Old Mutual Prestige Cup has helped to launch their season and they are well placed in the top three for this week’s rankings.

Boy's Water Polo Rankings: 16/02/2018

This Week’s SA School Sports Water Polo Rankings for this week has St. Stithians out in front although there is still a whole lot of water polo to be played.

In the early exchanges in this year water polo encounters three teams have risen to the top and they are the three teams who finished last year’s season in the top three.

Rondebosch continue where they ended off in 2017 and have immediately hit the front of this year’s SA School Sports Rankings.

Rondebosch and Glenwood both recorded good wins last week which keeps them still at the top of the SA School Sports Rankings for this week with Selborne College remaining in the top three.

The St.Stithians team have been in brilliant form right through the 2017 season and it comes as little surprise that they remain the No.1 ranked team on this week’s SA School Sports Rankings.

Living up to their tag as the leading team in South Africa, Rondebosch put on a display of winning water polo at the Saints Invitational Tournament where they fought their way to the final match.
