Week 5 : 9 March 2020

Volleyball:

The Bay of Plenty Secondary Schools Volleyball finals were held over the weekend at Trust Arena. There was some awesome volleyball on display from all the teams in the Bay.

Our Senior A boys and girls teams both made semifinals with the girls playing Taupo and the boys playing Western Heights.

The girls played very tidy Volleyball and made minimal errors beating Taupo 3-0 to make the final.

The boys had a tough game against height, the eventual winners, and couldn’t take the game so played off against Tauranga Boys for 3rd/4th.

In the final the girls came up against rivals Trident High School who they had previously played in pool play and won a very close five set match. Trident were very clinical in the final and, with too many errors from our girls, we went down 0-3 to finish 2nd overall. 

 

Athletics:

Last week the Bay of Plenty Secondary Schools Championships were held at the Tauranga Domain. We had 36 students there for the day competing across many events.

Overall our students did incredibly well with 13 of them qualifying for the Waikato Secondary Schools which are held next week.

There were some standout performances:
Millie Tisch had a very long day, competing in one of the first events and also in the very last event.  Despite that she finished 2nd in 200m and 1st in 400m for senior girls.  
Olivia Cummings finished 2nd in the 1500m and 1st in the 3000m for senior girls.

Three of our students also won their age group hurdles: Connor Gregg, Lilly Muspratt and Caleb Paki-Campbell.

We wish our 13 athletes the best of luck going into the Waikato Championships.

 

Futsal:

The Bay of Plenty Futsal champs were held on Friday last week over at the Trust Arena. As a school we had three boys teams and two girls teams competing.

The boys played well throughout the day and actually managed to finish 5th overall without losing a game,  but drawing two games means that they missed out on the semifinals.

Our two senior girls teams unfortunately had to play each other in the semifinals, meaning only one could make the final. In a tight game the girls that are going to the National champs took the win & went on to win the final as well, the other team finishing 3rd. 

 

Rowing:

We would like to wish our rowers the best of luck as they head to Lake Karapiro on Friday morning to compete in the North Island Secondary Schools Rowing Championships.
