Dragon Boating

Our Dragon Boating team left the competition in their wake at the Auckland Dragon Boating Championships on Sunday 26 March. The team won every heat they competed in and placed 1st in the mixed grade!

This accomplishment is even more amazing because two of their paddlers had never been in the boat before, stepping in to to fill the breach left by injury!  What an awesome accomplishment team!

Ultimate Frisbee

Earlier this month our Ultimate Frisbee team competed in the AKSS Ultimate Championships. In some high-intensity matches, the team managed to win 6/7 games, earning them 2nd overall. Their accomplishments as a team have led them to Taupō this week for the Ultimate Nationals. Good luck team!
