Tauranga Girls’ College is making the most of the summer heat
Tennis: The Tauranga Girls’ College senior tennis team were making the most of the last week of summer at the Papamoa tennis courts last Thursday on the 23rd of February. Tauranga Girls’ College entered in division 1 singles and also division 2 singles and doubles, both of which produced spectacular results. Kalais Going was the overall division 1 winner and Julia Newman was second. Andraya Heyes won second in the division 2 singles after 5 tough matches throughout the day defeating players also from tauranga Girls’ College such as Madeleine Thompson (who placed third). Also an outstanding efforts from Arleah Tippins and Janya Vinson who were second in the division two doubles.
Cricket: On the same day Tauranga Girls’ College cricket team had their first game of the season against Taupo-nui-a-tea in a 30 over game in Rotorua. Tauranga Girls’ College won and therefore hold the Bay of Plenty Championship title and are now looking forward to their next match in Hamilton to hopefully win the Northern Districts and qualify for nationals again later this year.
With two of their best batters unavailable due to injury and up against the Bay of Plenty Tennis Champs, Tauranga Girls’ College batted first to score 206 in 27 overs, backed with a good fielding and bowling performance that saw Tauranga Girls’ get Taupo out with a hundred runs remaining - an outstanding performance!
Congratulations to Rebecca Ricard on retiring on 75 and Nensi Patel retiring on 53. Wickets were shared between Christina Gatenby-Hinton, Kenze Taele, Alice Cotter and Paris Robertson.
Also special congratulations to Briana Perry and Nensi Patel who played in the NZ U21 tournament in Auckland in late December 2016 where Briana made the tournament team. They also played along with Holly Topp in the U18 tournament also in Auckland where Briana and Holly both successfully made the tournament team. Holly has been drafted to play in the women's NPL competition in a different team than Briana and Nensi ensuring some healthy competitiveness. Notably Briana has also been brought into the Northern Spirit team with Nensi and having two girls playing at the highest level of New Zealand women's cricket alongside current White Ferns is an amazing accomplishment.
Wakeboard: Tremendous praise to Brooke Wilson who has already placed third in the Asia Oceania Wakeboard Competition, which is the first time New Zealand has ever medalled in this competition, on winning the North Island Wakeboard Competition the past weekend!
