Hockey:

Our 1st XI Hockey team started their midlands Secondary Schools games in their lead up to tournament last week. The girls had a home game against Sacred Heart College from Hamilton. The girls started the game reasonably slow, the holiday break seemed to factor into that, conceding an early goal. The girls managed to pick themselves up after this and gradually started to perform. An awesome individual effort from Santi Tyson who injected herself into the attack from the back to score, saw the scores drawn at half time. The girls started somewhat better in the second half and it was great to see the girls transferring the ball throughout the field. After dominating for some time, a second goal was scored by Sophie Kennedy. Sacred Heart managed to slip back in the game after being awarded a penalty corner with a successful outcome. The teams were very closely matched with Sacred Heart being a top team in the Hamilton competition so 2-2 was a good result for the girls. Ruby Evens was a stand out player along with year 10 Nikayla Bradly who has been performing extremely well after making the final 1st XI team.

The Junior A Girls put in a stellar effort against the TGC 2nd XI in a 2-2 draw. Sisters Nicole and Ashley Hancock along with Maddison Presley were stand out players with all three working tirelessly on attack and defence.

Dancing:
Tazmyn Newman performed in the Tauranga Performing Arts festival during the holiday break performing well picking up 2 3rds and 2 VHC.
This form carried over to the Hamilton Dance competition where she managed a 1st in Lyrical, a 2nd in both musical theatre and Jazz, and 2nd VHC in impromptu jazz and contemporary.

Rugby:
The First XV and u15 Rugby boys were lucky to have an opportunity to play a touring side from England, Malvern College, last Wednesday afternoon. The first XI game was a closely contested match where both teams took turns at leading for the duration of the game. Typical English Rugby brought with it accurate kicking and fast outsides which in the end proved too much for our boys to hold out for the full 80 minutes. The physicality of the game was great but the spirit was even better. It was an awesome experience for both teams as the boys billeted the Malvern College boys the night prior to the game and the night of the game. It was nice to hear the boys having some friendly banter when set plays were setting up on the field and after the match was played. 

The under-15 boys took on TBC under-15 B and produced an emphatic 50-10 win.  Well done to James Austin, who managed a hat trick in the first half. The boys have now booked themselves a spot in the semi finals.
