In Term One, for the first time, Awatapu College had two teams compete in the Canoe Polo Regional Secondary School Competition in Levin - a Junior Girls team and a Senior Open team. Both teams played well, and the Junior Girls team came second. This meant that they qualified for the Nationals; an excellent achievement.
In April the Secondary School Nationals were held over three days at The Lido Aquatic Centre. The Junior Girls, who are Ellan Babbage, Sophia Babbage, Helena McLachlan, Annelies Orme, Tayla Saunders, Addi Sawyer, Bianca Trewick and Molly Turnball, played better than even, and finished seventh. We are very proud of them for this great effort, and look forward to competing again next year.
Awatapu College Canoe Polo is grateful to Mr Greg Sawyer for his excellent coaching, and the time and effort he put in helping with equipment.
