T20 Cricket Champions

Our junior male and female cricket teams played their way to the final of the recent Mike Wright T20 Junior Cricket Tournament.

Both teams were victorious and had the incredible experience of playing the final on the international standard Bay Oval.

All involved were excellent and parental support outstanding. Ōtūmoetai Colleges’ very own Grace Duncan and Harrison Miles were both named male and female players of the tournament.

Congratulations to our junior cricketers.
