A four-game split and a bronze medal was a fitting way to end the year for one of the popular clubs in local sports this year, as they continue to progress in a sport that is rapidly growing in The Bahamas.

Overall, the Mantas finished the three-day weekend classic with a 2-2 win-loss record, ending another progressive year in water polo in which The Bahamas won gold, silver and bronze at CARIFTA, the under-18 (U18) boys national squad won bronze at the 28th Central American and Caribbean Amateur Swimming Confederation (CCCAN) Water Polo Championships, and The Bahamas qualified for the UANA (Swimming Union of the Americas) Pan American Youth Water Polo Championships for the second year in a row. The Pan American Youth Championships is a qualifier for junior world championships.
