21 Aug Sports Draw and Round Up Week 5
Pictured: Auckland Rugby League Senior A Champions 2017!
Congratulations to the 1st XIII Rugby League team, who last week came away as champions of the Senior A ARL Secondary Schools competition.
Played at the home of rugby league in NZ, Mt. Smart Stadium, the boys came away with a 18-8 victory over James Cook High School. Led by Nicole Jensen and students Andrew Mana and Kenshin Tsutsui, the team represented the school proudly on Wednesday.
Also a congratulations to the 2nd XV rugby team who completed their season with a tough outing vs rivals St. Kentigern College. Reaching the quarter final was the highest placing for our 2nd XV ever, and is a great sign of the depth we are starting to develop in our school. The team were coached by George Emosi, Clive Daniels and managed by Olivia Sanders.
The Under 17 B Basketball Boys, played in the 17B championship and were unlucky to go down on the final shot in overtime to St. Peters. This is a huge achievement considering the team is student coached by Premier player Jason Mamaradlo, and there are a few players who were in their first full season in the sport. A big thank you to manager Harold Russ for his support throughout the season.
Premier 1 Netball beat Diocesan Girls School Premier 1 comfortably, 42-25, to complete the round robin stage of the Premier 2 competition. Despite multiple injuries to key players throughout the season, the squad has been resilient and the students who have been promoted to the starting line-up to cover injuries have been impressive all season. With a full strength line up ready to go, the girls now prepare for the playoff stage and for UNISS. Led by coach Nicole Jensen and managers Kim Hillgrove, and Lisa Cumberland.
