The New Zealand Secondary Schools Swimming Competition was held in Hamilton last week. Zac Reeder went over and competed extremely well throughout the meet with many top 10 finishes. His top awards were 3rd in 200m Breaststroke and 2nd in the 50m, 100m Breaststroke. This is an outstanding achievement at a National Swimming competition.

Around the Mount relay:
The around the Mount relay was delayed this year due to the slips on the mount in term two. We finally managed to run the event on Monday 25th September. We had another good turnout of students competing in this event again this year, mainly boys. In the junior Boys we had a strong team consisting of Troy Herdman, Tim Pringle and Luke Kivell. The teams were meant to be in four but unfortunately this team only had three on the day, Troy ran twice in the relay and the boys won the Junior Boys Grade.

Last Month Eden Holley travelled to Japan to train and compete in the World Karate Championships. While over in Japan Eden sat her Black Belt Dan grade diploma and passed. This means that she is now recognised as an international standard and is registered in Karate in Japan. In the World Championships Eden won a bronze medal in Kata (arranged forms) and also placed 4th in Kumite (sparring). These World Championships was the first time that Eden had competed in an international event and was an extremely successful event for her. Congratulations Eden this is an absolutely outstanding result and we are looking forward to your many more successes in your future.
