A Carmel student has won a Gold Medal at the Under 15 National Age Group Water Polo Championships held at Manchester Aquatic Centre. She was part of the City of Sheffield Water Polo team, who convincingly won all their group games and went on to beat City of Liverpool 10-5 in the semi-finals and Cheltenham 14-3 in the Finals.
Her “home” club is Sedgefield Water Polo Club based in Newton Aycliffe, but for this National competition was drafted into the City of Sheffield squad along with all the other leading U15 female Water Polo players from the North East.
This has meant her training in Sheffield 2-3 times a week (on top of her normal training schedule) during September/October, with all this dedication and hard work paying off with this fantastic achievement. Congratulations Ella!
