Congratulations to Georgie O’Dea who made the New Zealand Youth Women’s Volleyball team. Georgie played in the recent interprovincial u20 Volleyball tournament for Bay of Plenty and left straight from that tournament in Wellington to Vietnam to play for New Zealand. We wish Georgie the best of luck overseas.

The Bay of Plenty secondary schools Rock-Climbing competition was again held at Mount Maunganui’s Rocktopia. We had six students compete in the event and all did very well. This is a growing sport in the Bay of Plenty so there were large numbers competing. Congratulations to Irralee Hair who took out the senior girl’s competition and Eva Karena who finished 2nd in the junior girls.

Cross Country:
The Waikato Secondary Schools Cross Country was held in Taupo last week, where Nationals is this coming weekend. We had seven students compete in this event with some awesome results within a group of great athletes. Olivia Cummings again competed very well, it was her first year in the senior girls grade and she finished 2nd. We would like to wish our five athletes going to National this weekend the best of luck.

The Western BOP Junior Badminton champs were held in Tauranga at Qeyc. This year we had six junior teams compete for a spot at the Bay of Plenty Secondary Schools champs in August this year. It was a very successful year with our top team in both boys and girls making division one for finals and our two other girls teams making division two finals and our 2nd boys team making division two finals as well. Good luck to these students who will continue training over winter for the finals.
