The last month has been a golden one for many of our students and teams at Hamilton Girls.
Georgia Allen not only won the NZ Club U18 single scull final but was a convincing winner at the North Island Secondary Schools Regatta in the U18 single scull final.
Tenika Willison, Te Awatea Whitiora-Te Uira, Carmen Mataira, Leah Meagher and Manaia Waudby were part of the winning U21 team at the Touch Club Nationals. Furthermore, Tenika Willison and Te Awatea Whitiora-Te Uira were both selected for the NZ U19 Girls Touch team.
The HGHS Senior Touch team showed their class at the Waikato-Bay of Plenty Zones competition. Not only did they go through the competition unbeaten but no tries were scored against them. This is a truly outstanding effort.
Katie Lush had an outstanding performance at the Waikato Secondary Schools Triathlon championships not only taking out her age group, but also coming in first female overall. This is a great achievement for Katie, who continues to go from strength to strength. This placing earned her a place in the New Zealand Secondary Schools Championships held on 27th March in Gisborne where she finished 16th in the U16 division.
The athletics team also had some stand out performances at the Waikato-Bay of Plenty Championships. At the Waikato-Bay of Plenty Championships Eden Bates took out the Intermediate High Jump, Jazmin Hotham won the Junior Girls 200 metres and Mikaela Jefferson the Senior girls 300 metre hurdles at the Waikato-Bay of Plenty Championships. Eden, Jazmin, Mikaela, Tessa Leong, Michaela Foster and Tiana Parker qualified and were selected to attend the North Island Secondary Schools Championships in Masterton.
We are very proud of all of these students and their accomplishments.
