We've had a busy time across a range of areas including starting up Winter sports. Highlights include winning the Otago Southland Cross Country.
The OSSSA Cross Country Series started on May 9 with the Logan Park Road Race. Rebecca Dalphin (Year 10) placed 2nd in the Junior girls division. On May 25, two teams traveled to Milton to compete in the Otago/Southland Relay race. Last year we placed 1st in the Senior mixed division.
This year we again won the Otago/Southland Cross Country Senior Mixed relay race. The 1st team was Louis Freeman, Alva Feldmeier, Rebecca Dalphin and Hamish Mckinley. It was an exciting race with Hamish Mckinley bringing us home strongly. Team 2 placed 4th with a good run; Calum Rogers, Joe McKee, Mary Locker and Vivianne Dalphin. The team is now preparing for the Otago Championships to be held on the 1st June.
Jack Wright is an Otago representative player in Snooker Pool. He was placed 4th in Second Tier in the Open Men's competition.
Sunny McCabe (Year 10) is in the Otago U15 Boys Table Tennis team which won against Southland 10-2 in May.
In Futsal, three teams recently competed in the Otago Futsal Championships in Dunedin. Our Senior Girls team played very well and placed 3rd.
We are seeing real development in Netball, Football, Hockey and Basketball. It is also pleasing to see the increase in junior school participation. We are looking forward to the Co-Ed Winter Sports Tournament next month. Our Junior Boys Football team have had a strong start to the season winning both their games. Our Netball girls have also started strongly with good wins in all teams.
For the first time we have entered a Curling team in the Dunedin competition and our students are already showing talent for the sport and thoroughly enjoying themselves.
