Monday 19 January 2015

Connor Keeble, from Bishop Barrington School, is making it big in the world of Water Polo.  Connor, a member of Sedgefield Water Polo Club, has made it into the GB water Polo Squad.   Selection took place after an intensive training weekend in Cardiff.  Connor is also a member of Bishop Barrington’s Elite Sports Academy.  Director of the Academy Ben Johnson commented, “This is a fantastic achievement for Connor, he really deserves all his success.  We have been working with Connor on his mental preparation and determination and hopefully this has helped his progress”.  Last year Connor helped Sedgefield win the ASA National Water Polo under 15 championships.  At this competition, Connor was not only the top scorer but also voted Most Valuable Player.   Connor has been playing Water Polo for over 7 years.  He said “I’m really proud of myself and it’s a reward for how hard I have worked.  I enjoy Water Polo as it keeps me fit and my dream is to play in the Olympics”.
