Well Done Those Lads

Last week was tournament week through out the country with many sports holding their national ranking tournaments. Our guys did very well with the following results.
  • The 1st XV soccer played in the top ranking tournament finishing 11th, which rates them in that same position for all of NZ. (NPBHS were 20th). This is the highest ranking we have ever held and to top that off the team is playing in the final of the Duff Rosebowl this weekend - not bad for their first year in premier men's grade!
  • The 1st XV hockey team played in the Mayhill Cup Tournament finishing 9th. They would have been higher but were unlucky to strike the eventual finalists as their partners in pool play. Like the soccer team this is their highest ranking ever and makes them the highest ranked catholic schools team in the country.
  • The Senior A basketball team played in their regional tournament. They have had a fairly quiet year but showed outstanding spirit to play above their tournament ranking and gain a place in the national tournament to be played in a few weeks time.
  • On a rugby note we congratulate our brother school De La Salle College who drew with Hamilton BHS in the top four final and have been declared the top 1st XV in the country.

Great to see all that hard work and dedication rewarded in so many areas.
