Master-in-charge of water polo and first water polo team coach at the girls’ college, Pierre le Roux said, “The girls have put in an incredible amount of effort this season. We set ourselves some high goals early in the season and a lot of sacrifice was made to try and achieve them all. I am incredibly proud of what these girls have already achieved but I do believe the best is still to come.”
