The Byron Bay Bullsharks women’s waterpolo team have played their way into second place on the Far North Coast competition ladder after bagging five wins from six starts.
The Bullsharks are a good mix of youth and experience according to Kerry Hardey, who played some of her junior water polo for Great Britain.
‘We lost four or five players from last year, but have managed to make up the numbers and ended up with a pretty good team,’ she said.
‘We have players coming back to the game who are experienced, and out fitness is growing as the season goes on. We are also getting to know each other better, but best of all we are managing to get some goals in.
‘Waterpolo is awesome for fitness and awesome socially, it’s a really great bunch of women, super friendly,’ she said.
There are just two rounds before the halfway mark of the competition and the Alstonville Axolotls are just one win in front.
Lennox Ladies and Mullum round out the top four.
The competition also includes teams from Lismore and Ballina.
‘It’s a very social comp, we are happy for anybody to come down to the pool and have a try,’ Kerry said.
