Two Dorset water polo players from West Dorset SC helped the ASA SouthWest team to victory at the weekend at the 2016 U14 Inter Regional Water Polo Championships held in Walsall. The ASASW team played and won all five of their matches to become 2016 Champions by beating the Midlands team in the final 13-7.
Training with West Dorset WP at Dorchester and at Osprey LC with Weymouth and Portland WPC, thirteen year old Phoebe Jones and eleven year old Amelia Jones were both selected during trials held earlier in the year in Exeter. This was Phoebe’s first major competition although she has represented both Dorset and West Dorset in water polo previously, and regularly swims for Weymouth Swimming club. Being a year younger than the rest of the team, Amelia was a surprise selection and the event her first taste of competing. Both girls have now been nominated to attend for training selection trials at the ASASW Regional Water Polo Academy.
