Athletics Update

Author -  Vicki Wilson

Last Friday Pinehurst School Year 9 & 10 Athletics Team competed in the finals for 1st and 2nd in the North Harbour team Athletics competition.

THE GIRLS TEAM competed against Carmel College and were narrowly defeated, putting on a great performance to gain 2nd place overall for the North Harbour competition.

THE BOYS TEAM competed against Rosmini College in a very close effort where the lead changed on points with each event. Rosmini managed to win only in the last event where they only just beat Pinehurst in the high jump event.

The competition was extremely exciting, especially in the relays where both our Boys and the Girls teams won in exciting fashion.


Last Saturday
a number of our athletes competed in the open Auckland competition in preparation for the New Zealand Secondary Schools championships this weekend (7 and 8 December) in Hamilton.

Matt Watson and Georgie Glover Clark featured to win their respective hurdles races. Matt defeated the North Island champion who was likely the favourite to win the NZ title again this year. Georgie also did exceptionally well and put on a strong performance.

The team of 16 athletes leave today (Friday 6 December) for Hamilton for the New Zealand Secondary Schools championships. We wish them all the very best.
