First team girls made to fight all the way against East London’s Stirling in Grahamstown tourney
Pearson showed their class in the pool when they took the honours by defeating Stirling, of East London, 5-2 in the final of the Brian Baker first team girls’ water polo tournament in Grahamstown at the weekend.
Hosted by Kingswood College, the three-day event is named after Brian Baker, a popular teacher who was instrumental in developing girls’ water polo at the school and coached the sport until he tragically died in 2004.
The tournament, now in its fourth year, attracts some of the best water polo-playing schools from Port Elizabeth, East London, George and Cape Town.
Pearson had a tough final against Stirling, with both teams prepared to show discipline, structure, fitness and hard work to try to capture the title.
A strong opening attack saw Pearson slot in five goals, with Erin Mukheibir and Kelsey Vaughan shining for their team.
