New Zealand Secondary School Championships

Newtown Park, Wellington

6-8 December 2019

In atrocious weather conditions, pouring rain and strong gale force winds, placings not times were important.  The school team of 12 adapted well keeping their composure to record a fine set of results.  Inclement weather meant the Road Race championship had to be cancelled.


Angus Lyver – Junior Boys (U16)

1st 200m – a fine effort in a race run in a torrential downpour – 23.22secs

2nd Long Jump – 6m.33cm – another outstanding effort in trying conditions


The Junior 4 x 100m finished 3rd.  Team members:

Greg Austin, Caleb Evans, Forbes Kennedy and Angus Lyver.  They produced quality changes which meant another outstanding leg from Angus and a gutsy and composed team performance.


In the 4 x 400m run on times the team of Greg Austin, Caleb Evans, Sam Lohrey and Forbes Kennedy finished 8th to gain valuable experience for the future, a top effort 3mins 57.15secs.


Other individual results for Juniors were:

Greg Austin               400m - semi-finalist 55.91secs (12th)

Caleb Evans              200m - semi-finalist 24.28 (PB) (15th)

                                     High Jump -1m.60cm (17th)

Sam Lohrey               Triple Jump - 11m.10cm (15th)

                                   400m - 60.6cm (20th)

Reuben Duker          1500m - 4mins.44secs

Forbes Kennedy       400m - 56.75secs

                                    Long Jump - 5m.49cm (reserve for semi-finals)


Senior Results:

Benjamin Wall ran a fine tactical race to finish 4th in a rough close race in tough conditions.  A fine performance - 4mins.05.60secs. 


Guy Peterson in the javelin with gale force winds, meaning luck played a part. Threw 44.53cm to finish 10th.  This was not a true indication of his ability, none-the-less a creditable effort.  

Liam Wall                  1500m - 4mins 25.83secs, gained valuable experience as a first

year senior. 

Robert Norman         800m – 2mins 8.55secs

Dirki Botha                800m – 2mins 6.18secs


Senior 4x400 finished 13th.  Team members:

Angus Lyver, Robert Norman, Liam Wall and Dirki Botha.  A gutsy effort a valuable experience for the future.


Once again school athletes can perform well if they train regularly and adapt to the conditions.


Finally, thanks to our Manager and driver Tony Chettleburgh from Tranzit Coachlines for your knowledge and support.


It was pleasing to see parents at the meeting, the boys appreciate your interest and support.

3rd XI Cricket

3rd XI Cricket Match Report

The 3rd XI played Bloomfield on Ongley Park on a typical (i.e. windy) Palmerston North day. Bloomfield won the toss and elected to bowl. Our batting started slow with 54-5 at drinks with Michael Watkins and Jack Gordan making 34 of those. After drinks the game hope returned when Cooper Ryder hit a 6 and a couple of 4s to add 24 onto the total. Camryn Caffell managed 8 fours (and a total of 50) before being run out when the two batters ended up together on the same crease. We were all out for 157 by the 38th over. A solid effort from the team.

Mehnoor Ghuman and George Simpson opened the bowling and the first wicket fell from George in the 3rd over. From there the wickets kept falling with two catches and a stumping by drinks giving Bloomfield a total of 77/6. After drinks the bowlers applied the same pressure. A stumping of their top batter and a beautiful run out throw by Thomas Bell sealed their fate with Bloomfield all out for 113 runs. Max Herbert (Wkt Keeper), Mehnoor Ghumann 2-20, George Simpson 4-18, and Fred McVerry 2-37.  A win to the 3rd XI by 44 runs.
