The Bay of Plenty Secondary Schools Senior Volleyball Championship started over the weekend at Trust Arena and QEYC. We had five girls teams and three boys teams that are competing at BOP champs. All our teams did very well over the weekend with some good Volleyball being played. The Senior A Boys won both games on Saturday, placing them in the top four for Sunday. The boys first game was against Western Heights High School and was going to be tough. In a very very close fought five set match the boys came out on top winning 3-2.  Our senior A Girls had a good start to BOP champs topping their pool for the weekend. The girls had some close sets against Whakatane Senior A Girls but managed to win all four games 3-0. All other teams played well throughout the weekend, winning some good games and losing some close games. Good luck to our teams for the next two rounds which are coming up after a two weekend break.

The New Zealand Secondary Schools Open Water Swimming Championships was held on Saturday 9th February over at a very rough Mount Maunganui beach. We had two year nine students compete in this event. Danielle Fowler finished 10th and Lara Rickey finished 14th in the 12-13 Year age group. Congratulations girls on your awesome swim girls, the sea was extremely rough over this weekend so that’s an awesome achievement.
