Well done to the team of College athletes who qualified to take part at the New Zealand Secondary Schools National Athletics competition held in Waitekere over three hot and sunny days last weekend. 

Good results in the preliminary rounds saw a number of both Junior and Senior competitors advance through to the final day of competition with 10 of our athletes gaining podium places. 

Matthew Manning won gold in the Senior Boys 1500m and, with fellow Senior Boys’ 4 x 100m relay team members, Mitchell Gibson, Dominic Devlin and Ben Panaaker, added silver to the tally. 

Lisa Putt was a silver medallist in the Girls’ Triple Jump, also winning silver in the Junior Girls’ 4 x 100m relay along with team members Jaymie Kolose, Elise Conway and Cecile Velghe.
