By RICHARD A FORBES, Star correspondent
SELECTORS have announced the North Coast CHS girls and boys water polo teams.
The selection trials at the Lismore Memorial Baths, saw young hopefuls from as far away as Kempsey and Murwillumbah vie for places for the State Championships in November.
Coach-manager of the girls team, John Hair, from Lismore High, said he was hopeful the team would make the semi-finals at Sutherland, Sydney.
"If the girls do get into the semis, they'll play against teams like Sydney East, a team that can blow everyone out of the water. We'll see what happens; there's a way still to go with training before then," Mr Hair said.
The girls team to play at the Sutherland Leisure Centre in the week of November 14, includes a host of Alstonville High School students ? Tegan Baker, Patia Delaney, Jessica Eglington, Jemma Gale, Jesse Grooms, Laura Hill, Elke Jacobsen, Emily Lewis-Hughes, Louise Napoli and Kelly Wilson.
Boys coach, Mark Edwards, from Murwillumbah High, said the team would play at the Taree Leisure Centre just a week later, November 21-24.
His team includes: Ben O'Grady, Tim Potter, Josh Smits and Tristan Zobel (Alstonville High); Dane Chisolm, Jason Milham, Caspar Rose (Mullumbimby High); and Brendan Nobbs, Dean Mackay and Jason Wollett (Southern Cross K12, Ballina).
