That team took 1st place in a tournament U18. It was the first success of Spanish Water Polo. Also is important to remark the club team of the above players: C.N. Montjuic 4 players, C.N. Barcelona 3 players, C.N. Terrassa 2 players, C.N. Barceloneta 1 player, C.N. Catalunya 1 player. That fact was very important for the Spanish Water Polo (Comment by: Mr. Josep Brasco Cata, ex coach of the Spanish National team and assistant of Bandy Zolyomy)
