Term 1 Summer Sports Summary

Volleyball

The volleyball team performed exceptionally well at the New Zealand Secondary Schools championships. 

They qualified into top 8 of Division 3. The team only dropped 2 games, which saw them drop out of the top 4. 

They won the final game, which was a credit to all the members of the team. Well done girls.


Tennis

Four Hastings Girls' High School tennis teams competed in the Hawke's Bay Secondary Schools Tennis competition this term, with the top result coming from our senior 1 team who placed 4th in the B grade competition. 

With a mixture of competitive and social teams it was great to see so many of our students participating each week. 

A huge thank you to Pa for coaching all teams, both after school and during lunchtimes. The girls really appreciate the time you have given up to help develop their tennis skills. 

Congratulations to all students who participated and we look forward to term 4.


Premier Touch

The Premier Touch team has just finished a good season. The team performed to it’s maximum and got progressively better throughout the season. 

Mr Gibbon, as coach, was impressed by the coach-ability of the team, that is, they were able to pick up new concepts quickly and use them in games. This combined with the girl’s excellent athletic ability and ball skills made a formidable team. 

This combination led to some convincing wins over Napier Girls, Iona and Woodford. Our only hiccup came against Karamu where, on that day, we came up against a better organised team.  It is a shame that the competition had no finals as we feel, that after some great training by the girls, we had a good chance of reversing the Karamu result. 

We look forward to the Junior touch season at the end of the year, so if you are Year 9 or 10 come play in Term 4. All levels of experience welcome!


Cricket

For the first time we had 2 cricket teams. The teams were coached by Mr Morgan and he was assisted by Shay Bentley. 

There were a lot of beginners playing this year but everyone had fun and experienced success. Both teams finished 3rd in their grades.


Ki o Rahi

Congratulations to the Ki o rahi team who won the Hawke's Bay Secondary Schools competition. They have combined with Hastings Boys and will compete in the New Zealand Secondary Schools Ki o rahi championships during the school holidays here in Hawke's Bay. 

Good Luck girls.


Rugby Sevens

HGHS Un15 sevens team finished 3rd at the National Condors tournament that was held in term 4 last year. This was a great achievement as it was the first time ever that the girls had played at this level. This results means that we automatically qualify for this years tournament at the end of the year.

HGHS Un18 sevens competed in a qualifying condors tournament which was held in Waipukurau. The team played well at the tournament and finished 3rd. We will have to wait to see if the we qualify for the condors tournament with results from other tournaments. Fingers crossed.
