Manawatu House Leaders build a pyramid

Palmerston North turned on beautiful weather for Athletics Preliminaries, where students donned in proud house colours, did their best in three throwing, three jumping and four running events. Top competitors were found for Athletics Finals on March 3rd, which will be held at Massey Athletics Track. Plenty of sunscreen, and water were consumed in the quest to win the year’s first house competition.

There were outstanding performances by many, here are a few that showed class by qualifying first in their house for at least four age group events:

  • Kaitlyn Watts – Known for her starring role in the first XI football as a junior.
  • Johanna Lloyd – Whose Top Academic, and performing arts achievements make her a true ‘all rounder’.
  • Maddison Hennrie – A Year 9 student who clearly has a bright future ahead at Freyberg.

Final Results

In a reversal of last year’s results. Manawatu have fallen down the participation stakes, and Kapiti House have stolen their Athletics crown.
