One of the highlights of Term One summer sport was the handball competition.
The popularity of handball as a new sport continues to grow. Logan Park had approximately 40 students competing this term.
Logan Park 1, a mixed team narrowly lost to an all boys Kavanagh team in a spirited final. A number of our students compete in the Otago Handball team. Zoe Degas and Joe McKee are both very strong players who lead our teams.
Joe trialed for the New Zealand U19 Handball team in mid April.
"The team really improved over the first term, taking away second place against some strong teams. Term 4 I am looking forward to growing with the new team and looking to win the grade." Joe McKee
Handball Term 4 successes:
Senior mixed team won first division in the Otago Secondary Schools Sport Association League against a strong Kings side.
A fantastic game with a score of 19-16. The teams were drawn at half time. Logan came out firing scoring 4 quick goals and held that lead for the game.
Junior Boys were second in Division 2. They are a talented team and played very well through out the Term.
Our Junior Girls had some good wins during the Term but struggled against the Co-ed teams. They improved heaps.
