Secondary Schools Tournament

Secondary Schools Tournament

We had two teams travel to New Plymouth to compete in Netball and Football during tournament week. Both teams benefited from the experience with Boys 1st XI Football achieving some very good results:

Scotts College drew 2-2

Hamilton Boys HS lost 7-3

Opunake HS win 12-0

Hauraki Plains College 4-2 win

Francis Douglas College 9-1 win

They finished the tournament a very creditable 9th out of 16. Congratulations to the Football team who have had a very good season having already won the local Secondary Schools Competition. Thank you to the Coaches Kelvin O’Reilly and Phil Logan and Manager Natalie Lane.

 

 

The Netball team did not do so well on the results front finishing the week without a win, however the growth that occurs as a result of going away and testing yourself against other schools and realising that you can compete against them, makes the week away worthwhile for that reason alone. Thank you to the coaches, Tracey Lupton and Mata Emile and the Manager Mel Megaw for providing this opportunity for our students.
