Ladies qualify for national league

Exeter’s Ladies secured their place in the British Water Polo League this weekend coming second in the qualification tournament in Northampton. Wins over Nova, Cheltenham, Sunderland came after a 6-3 loss to Manchester – because this was the first time the entire team had played together. The crucial match was a tense 5-4 victory over Watford which could have gone either way. Well done Ladies, Kamz and Simon T for coaching, and Suzy T for Team Managing / chaperoning (and without whom we could not have taken part this weekend!).
