On 14th and 15th April 2018, Breeanna Quine was in Manchester for the finals of the Swim England Water National Age Group Championship 2018 waterpolo tournament. She represented Newton Abbot in the U17s and, after an amazing final, the team brought home the gold medal. They’re now the British Champions!
Bree was also playing for a second team, Welsh Wanderers U19s, who were also victorious, bringing home the silver plate.
Newton Abbot Deny Otter Double
Newton Abbot claimed the girls’ U17 title on the final day of the Swim England Water National Age Group Championships 2018 in Manchester, claiming the gold medal with a resounding victory score of 9-6. The Devon side came into the competition on the back of victory in last year’s U15 Championships and continued their momentum in Manchester, backing up yesterday’s semi-final defeat of Cheltenham with a victory over the Otters – champions from three of the last four seasons.
In the winning the title, Newton Abbot became only the fourth team to lift the Edith and Tom Lythe Memorial Trophy.
Welsh Wanderers Win U19 Silver
The Welsh Wanderers were the girls U19 Plate winners after winning all three of their matches. They opened up their campaign with a 6-1 victory over Otter Futura and followed that up with a 7-1 triumph against Cheltenham. In their final match, they beat their closest rivals – second-placed Newton Abbot – 2-0 to ensure they took the silver Plate title.
