Summer Sport Update

14 Feb Summer Sport Update

It was a big week for Pakuranga College Sport, with both students and ex students competing on the national stage! Starting on Friday ex student Daniel Chapman showed his talent on the world softball stage playing in the Challenge Cup for the New Zealand Black Sox. They unfortunately lost to Japan in the final, however we wish Daniel luck in his pursuit to pitching at the World Champs in Prague later this year.

Another ex student Colin Munro helped the Black Caps secure their T20 series win against India, leading the team by hitting five boundaries and five sixes on Sunday evening.

Current students Phoebe Harris, Ella Crowe and Caitlin Green competed in the New Zealand Secondary Schools Open Water Champs at Mt Maunganui. In testing conditions Phoebe came away with a Gold, Ella with two Silvers and Caitlin added to this total with another silver. Well done girls!

Year 13 students Jacob Stephens and Marshall McCamish represented Auckland and Counties Manukau respectively at the Junior Touch Nationals in Rotorua. Jacob’s team finished in 5th, with Marshall’s team taking out 2nd place!

Finally, ex students Gerald and Michaile Van Wyk competed in the National Club Sevens where they reached the final representing Pakuranga United but unfortunately just fell short of taking the title.

Congratulations to you all, it is great to see our students being successful in sport! What a great way to start 2019!
