Waka ama teams impress in Samoa

Our Waka Ama squad travelled to Samoa in August to compete in the Alo Paopao event in Apia.

As well as achieving great results on the water, the students were the talk of the town for the way they represented their school with pride and humility. So much so the NZ High Commissioner dropped by to speak with and congratulate them.

Thank you to everyone that supported us in many ways.

Results:
J19 boys 500m Gold
J19 boys 250m Gold
J19 boys 8km Gold
Open Men’s 500m 5th
Open Men’s 250m 6th

There were no J19 girls so the combination of J16s / J19s had to race Open Women’s.
Open Women 500m Gold
Open Women 250m Bronze
Open Mixed 8km 5th
