Young Ovens and Murray water polo players Ava Kean and Bella Gogoll made an impressive debut at the Canberra Cup on the weekend.
Sharks' Kean and Pirates' Gogoll were among the women's team who took on sides from Sydney, Canberra and the Central Coast.
The Ovens and Murray team contested five games over the two-day event, but a one-goal loss on Saturday saw them out of finals contention.
Sharks' long-time star Leah Dodd was in solid form as playing coach for the tournament, while teammates Brooke Dickie and Phebe McLeod also rose to the occasion.
Team manager Tracey McLeod said it was a great atmosphere after a while spent out of the pool.
