Table Tennis:
Otumoetai performed well in the Table Tennis held at the QE2 last week with 36 students attending the event. The Junior Girls team took out there division. The Junior Boys team of Luka Matic, Alex Freeman and Moses Caldwell competed extremely well making the top 3 play-off in division one. The boys’ first game was against a talented Katikati team and they unfortunately lost 2-3 but went on to beat Aquinas to finish second overall. The Senior Boys who have been practicing hard during their last few rainy PE lessons made it to the play offs. Unfortunately Te Whare Kura o Mauao beat the boys in a very close semi-final to see the boys going on to finish fourth overall.

Junior Netball has come to a close with a very successful result from our girls. The OTC Junior Development took on the OTC Junior 2 in the Division 5 Premier final. Both teams coached by a teacher from school meant the rivalry was on. A close contest throughout, OTC Junior Development managed to take out the win and the division. OTC 10A finished runners up in in year 10 Division 2. This was an outstanding. Lastly huge congratulations to the OTC Year 9 A who were the winners of the year 9 Division 1. 

Two of our students competed in the Bay Interschool MX Club Champs hosted by Trident on Friday 18th August. The weather was beautiful for the event held at Awakaponga, however, the track was still rough from the week’s rain prior to the event. Riding the 125cc Sam Cooper finished 8th place in the under 15 boys. In the open women’s division, year 12 student Nakeeta Prior managed to finish the day 3rd. Riding the big 250cc alongside the boys, she managed to edge out the rest of her competition for a podium finish. Well done.

Congratulations to Joel Wisnewski who has made the final selection for the Bay of Plenty u18 Rugby team. This is an outstanding achievement Joel and we wish you all the luck in your games ahead.

Congratulations to all of our students that competed in the Bay of Plenty Age Groups Short Course Swimming champs over the weekend of 11th-13th August.
