Congratulations to Mackenzie Chatfield, Year 13 (pictured left), who was named MVP of the U17 Girls Division in basketball. Mackenzie led her Lead Scholarships team to the U17 Girls title.


Congratulations also to Year 9 student Fernanda Tirado (pictured right) who won Athlete of the Year in her age group at the Auckland Athletics Champs recently. Fernanda won 1st place in her age group at the U15 Interprovincials.

This is even more remarkable when you consider Fernanda came back from injury last year, and was only able to run again in October. This past season she won 13 Gold, 1 Silver, 2 Bronze and 2 first placings at College Sport Champs.

She competes in Long Jump, Hurdles, Shotput, Discus, 100mts, Hammer, and Javelin. Awesome effort Fenanda.


Last, but not least, congratulations to Year 10 gymnast Shalinee Bajwa (pictured left) who achieved 3rd overall at the Delta Invitational Competition last weekend in Christchurch, with her group winning first place.
