NZ Secondary Schools Championships 2013

Author -  Vicki Wilson

The New Zealand Secondary Schools championships held in Hamilton in December brought about a few dramas for the Pinehurst team, however our athletes performed well over the two days.

Matt Watson convincingly won his heat of the 100m Hurdles and was the fastest qualifier for the final. In the final, Matt’s strides to the first hurdle were disrupted leaving him placed last at the 2nd hurdle, however Matt had a fantastic finish and flew home for 3rd place. Although a great finish, Matt was disappointed having previously beaten 1st and 2nd runners previously and having achieved under NZ record time at training.                                                                                      

Stella Pearless controlled the field to field to win her heat brilliantly in the Junior Girls 800m but was not well enough to run the final the next day. The Junior Girls 4 x 100m Relay was disrupted with Hollie Glover-Clark having concussion the day before the championships. However, we were lucky to have Shanae Ahern available to run with Stella Pearless, Alexia Grace and Elizabeth Baroutsos. The girls ran really well to gain 9th place, just missing out on the final. The boys 4 x 100m team of Nicholas Goeldner, Matt Watson, Nick Hailes and Nico van Wijk also ran well to gain 9th place. Nick also competed in the Shot Put and in the Hurdles.

The Senior Girls Relay team of Nirvana and Claudia Knill, Julia Gessler and Georgie Glover-Clark were disqualified following interference by another team. Georgie also placed 9th in the 100m Hurdles. Our Road Race team consisting of Alex Ensor, Nick Goeldner and Declan Forrest competed well in the Junior Boys Road Race.
