On Sunday 23 April 2017 the Scottish Water Polo Championships were held in Dundee and Stirling Water Polo came away with a Championship win and a Silver Medal from two of the six finals held.

First up was the Under 16 Team who kicked off Finals Day with what was expected to be a tight game against Menzieshill playing in their home pool. The game started as expected and throughout was a tight affair, however in each quarter Stirling were able to edge out their opponents with a superb press defence. In attack a number of opportunities were wasted by Stirling but were consistently outscoring their opponents and were in control throughout the game, Stirling ran out 12-6 winners to lift the first Scottish Title for the Club.

Team (scorers): Cameron Blance, Harry Gray (2), Alexander Harris (3), Gregor Rodger, Tommaso De Nova (2), James Miller (1), Leon Campbell (1), Catherine Mitchell (1), Elizabeth Winton, Kirsty Miller, Ilhan Omar Nur Azam, Joanthan Hanson, Fraser MacNair 

Later in the day, it was the turn of the Under 19 Girls who went up against favourites Dunfermline. Stirling were weakened on the day with a couple of regular players missing and relying on only a squad of 9 players for the game. The first quarter was a tight affair with Dunfermline taking the lead but Stirling fighting back. At the end of the quarter Stirling trailed 3-4. The 2nd quarter saw our main goal threat excluded from the game for a very controversial refereeing decision and this left our Team with a mountain to climb. With only 1 reserve, Dunfermline took control and ran out 17-6 winners. However, a huge credit must go to the girls who fought hard throughout and never let their heads drop.

Team (scorers): Christy Simons, Lauren Dundee (2), Bethany Livingston, Lucy Tweedle, Ginika Akpata (2), Alison Mitchell, Catherine Mitchell, Elizabeth Winton (1), Kirsty Miller (1)       

Stirling players were also represented in the other Age Group finals on the day. Angus Cameron and Lewis Goldie represented Dunfermline who won the under 21 title and Harry Gray again played for Dunfermline in winning the under 18 title

Stirling Swimming started a Water Polo section on 28 April 2011 and being just under six years old, it was an excellent achievement to not only have one but two Teams in the Scottish Championship Finals, a first for the club.
