College Sports - Young Sportsperson of the Year Awards 

The annual College Sport Young Sportsperson of the Year Awards were held at Eden Park over the weekend, to honour the best student athletes in Auckland across the 32 sanctioned college sports. The top three students, from throughout Auckland, are selected as finalists in each sport, culminating in an overall sports person of the year. This year the College was proud to have 20 of our students selected as finalists with five of them going on to be named as winners. Talented Year 13 sportswoman, Mererangi Paul, won both the Netball and Touch (Girls) categories. 

To receive an invite to these awards is an honour as it means the student has been noted during the season as one of the top three players in their chosen sport from every secondary school in the Greater Auckland Area. 

Over 600 people attended the event and it was a proud moment for the students, their families and the College when the winners were announced. At the end of the night, out of all the winners of each sport, finalists are named for overall Sports Person of the Year. It was great to have two of our students, Mererangi (Netball and Touch) and Connor Brown (Cycling) named as finalists. Diocesan and Westlake Boys were the eventual winners, for rowing and multiport respectively. 

Congratulations to all the students selected as finalists, a fitting end to a fantastic year of sport at Saint Kentigern.
