After 2 years wait our boys finally got to travel around the Country and play in Sports tournaments.

During Winter  Sports week we had numerous teams travel around the country to play sport.

In Basketball our Juniors travelled to Nelson and ended up 4th with the highlight a win over the top seeded pool qualifier Hillview Christian College in the quarter finals. Our Senior A headed to Invercargill and in a tough competition ended up coming 20th with their best game against Ashburton. In Dunedin our Senior B competed well with limited player numbers and a tough competition.

Our 1st XI Football went through pool play unbeaten and lost a very tight semi final 2-0 to Christchurch Boys after hitting the cross bar when 1 nil down. In the play off for 3rd and 4th they lost the penalty shoot out 9 -10 to Southland Boys’ High School

Our 2nd XI Hockey team travelled to Blenheim and made the semi finals before going down to Westlake and then lost the 3rd/ 4th playoff to Palmerston North. A great result for a team that had low numbers and late changes and a huge road trip.

Our Under 15 Rugby team had 2 wins at the Hurricanes tournament and ended up 11th. Well done to Serge Meeuws who was announced at prizegiving as the McGlashan MVP for the tournament.

In the U16 Rugby Quad tournament in Christchurch the boys were always in the game in the first half and went close to beating both Nelson College and St Andrews.

A huge thank you to all the staff, coaches, managers, and supporters who supported and helped out our boys during the week.
