Greater Auckland Girls Touch Championships!

March 09, 2018 at 3:30 PM

The College Sport Greater Auckland Premier Girls Touch competition provided our Premier Girls’ team with a strong early season challenge against tough opposition, and a chance to show their true mettle – winning the event for the second year in a row! 

Held at Cornwall Park over three consecutive Mondays, the girls dominated the pool play beating Westlake Girls, Mt Albert Grammar, Howick College, Baradene College, One Tree Hill College and Saint Cuthbert’s College. Having won all six games comfortably, scoring 58 tries with only 4 against, they went on to face Westlake in the final - and had to work hard to finally secure the 5-4 win! 

The team now qualify in top position from the region for the NZ Secondary School Championships in December – a title they won last year! 

Congratulations to talented young sports woman, Mahina Paul (Year 13) who has been named in the NZ Women’s team to play in a Trans-Tasman tournament in April. As last year’s Girls Runner Up to the Dux Ludorum, Mahina is no stranger to international competition, representing NZ for the second year in a row.
