Central North Island Mountain Biking Champs
Congratulations to Abby Miller (Year 11) on winning the bronze medal in Enduro at the North Island Secondary School Mountain Biking Champs! That’s an impressive achievement, especially considering that it was her first race after ACL surgery. It’s great to see her determination and resilience in overcoming challenges during the race, such as the chain coming off, to still make it to the podium.
The Sports Office wishes Abby all the best for her future races. Keep up the great work!
Continued Canoe Slalom Success!
