A huge congratulations must go to Mr Washington, Mr Allen and the 1st XI Football squad who, for the second year in a row, are Minor Premiers. A fantastic effort made even more special by the performance that was required on Wednesday to secure the coveted trophy.
Heading in to the last round and down by six goals on differential, the team needed a strong performance to wrestle the silverware from Rangiora High School. The record breaking 17-0 performance was one for the ages.
This result highlights the need to focus on the process. With a mindset to do the small things well and play to the best of their ability, the result took care of itself. This is an age old adage in sport, yet we often forget it once we are caught up in the demands of competition.
Good luck to our 1st XV rugby team who play their semi-final at home this weekend. The squad are looking for a strong performance to round out what has been a successful season.
