Gillette Cup Cricket Update
The Ōtūmoetai College boys First X1 Cricket team recently competed in the annual Gillette Cup inter school competition. While all matches were relatively even, we managed to beat Pāpāmoa College and John Paul College, and narrowly lost to Bethlehem College.
Standout performances came from Joel Griffiths (Year 12) with two unbeaten half-centuries, and a five wicket bag from Austin Taylor (Year 12). Captained by allrounder Lucas Grant (Year 12), the team is composed of a majority of Junior players, including two Year 9s, which bodes well for the future.
All our cricketers play their cricket through the Ōtūmoetai Cadets Cricket Club, and we are excited for the future of the game at our school for both boys and girls as it goes from strength to strength.
Representing NZ at the FINA World Championships
Congratulations to a Year 12 student, Chloe Boyt, who has been selected to represent New Zealand at the FINA World Championships in June this year in Budapest, Hungary.
FINA is the international federation for swimming so it is an enormously prestigious competition to be able to attend. Chloe is the only athlete from Tauranga to be part of the squad that will represent Aotearoa and this is such a fine achievement from a very dedicated athlete.
We wish Chloe all the best for her upcoming intense training regime, and we are so excited to have a member of our Ōtūmoetai whānau reach this level of success and recognition. Ka mau te wehi, Chloe!
