SHC takes third place at AKSS Snowsport Champs!
Thursday 11 June saw 12 students from Sacred Heart compete in the Auckland Secondary Schools Snowsport Championships at Snowplanet.
A strong team of six Giant Slalom racer skiers performed extremely well with George FitzGerald 5th, Finn Bawden 6th, Matt Peters 8th, Matt Sybertsma 10th and Ben Mulrennan 16th in a strong field of over 60 boys.
A podium 3rd finish for Sam Clezy in the Slopestyle Ski event was a highlight and reflects Sam’s hard work and progress made.
Our snowboard team of Harry Finnigan, Sasha Rowell, Ieuan Davies and Hunter Craig all performed well in the Snowboard GS and Slopestyle events, and it was the combined team efforts from all events that saw Sacred Heart awarded third boys school overall – a great achievement. Tough competition from Kristin School who were first, and Westlake in second place.
The hard work and effort at training is reflected in these positive results. The race and slopestyle ski and snowboard squads now look ahead to the North Island Championships which are held at Turoa, Mt Ruapehu in mid September.
Special thanks to parent manager John Mulrennan for his management of the boys at this event.
