Three members of the Surrey Orcas Water Polo Club spent much of last month overseas, after being named to various national teams.

South Surrey’s Zachary Devitt, who is heading into Grade 10 at Earl Marriott Seconday next week, was in Turkey, after spending a week in Serbia with the national 1996/97-born team.

Taylor Venner, who graduated from EMS this past year, was in Italy, as the 1993-born national squad continued its European tour which began in France and wraps up in Greece. A third Surrey Orca, Steven Hutton, was with the ‘94/95 team this summer.

In Serbia, Devitt’s squad – which left Aug. 13 for Europe – took part in the Darko Cukic Memorial Tournament.

From there, the team flew to Istanbul, Turkey, where they participated in joint training sessions with Turkey’s national team, followed by a four-team tournament Aug. 26-28.
