In 2013, during the club’s 50th year celebrations, the Barracudas Club Hall of Fame was launched including four initial inductees. Last night the club announced two very deserving new entries into the history books as part of the Hall of Fame – Mel Rippon and Kate Gynther.
Brisbane Barracudas are deeply saddened to learn that Cole Miller has passed away in a Brisbane hospital following the tragic incident that occurred on January 3rd.
We would like to express our heartfelt condolences to Cole’s family, his Barracudas team mates and indeed the broader Water Polo community who are mourning the loss of a fine young man.
18 year old Cole Miller was in the prime of his life, a talented young water polo player reaping the rewards of his hard work and dedication to the sport he loved. This was his second season playing at the elite level with the National League and he had a promising career ahead of him.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Miller family and we respect the family’s privacy during this time of grief.
We wish to thank the broader sporting community for their condolences during this difficult time.
Our Brisbane Barracudas women’s water polo team have won their fifth National Water Polo League championship in a gripping 10-8 victory over the Sydney University Lions that was decided in a penalty shootout at Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre. The women’s qualification for the gold medal match was yet another record – their 7th consecutive Grand Final appearance.
