Aoraki Secondary Schools Touch Rugby Championships 2016
The Aoraki Secondary Schools touch rugby championships were held on Sunday 6 March at Centennial Park Oamaru.
The Roncalli senior boys team finished 2nd overall after two good wins against Mt Hutt and a junior team from Waitaki Boys High School. The game against Timaru Boys High School was played as a final and after a good battle on the field by both teams TBHS took the win 3-0. Roncalli finishing in second place qualified them to compete at the South Island Secondary Schools Touch Championships to be held at Sheldon Park, Christchurch 19th & 20th March.
Team – Jack O’Shaughnessy, Samuel Kensell, Jacob Mulholland, Ethan Stevenson, Adam Hamel, Joe Anderson, Tayla Meager, Sam Taylor, Patrick Brosnahan, Aidan Barnes, Blair Smith, Bailey Tyree, Will McCoy. - Good luck for the South Island Champs boys!
The senior girls’ team had a mixed day of results finishing 4th overall with one win, one draw and two losses. The girls played well against tough opposition but unfortunately 4th place did not qualify them to compete at the SISS Champs.
Team – Abigail Kinsman, Abby O’Brien, Korlina Volkov, Tessa Williamson, Sam Williamson, Olivia Waldron, Sarah Waldron, Issy McKeown, Lucy Hogan, Zara Poi-Walker, Molly Richardson, Ruby Sugrue.
A huge thank you to Bryce Caird, Ethan Pierce, Ellen Walsh, Richelle Cannell, Laura Handy, and Jack Dunn for giving up their Sunday to either coach, manage or referee. Also to the parents who provided transport for the players and those who travelled to support the teams this was very much appreciated.
