Newlands students in action at North Island Athletics Champs

Last weekend 5 Newlands students competed in the North Island Athletics Championship in Masterton having qualified via the recent Wellington Regional Athletics Championship.

Aprille Mincher (Y13) won the senior girls triple jump and finished third in the high jump.

Ben Murdoch (Y10) competed across four events and was the junior boys winner for both long jump and high jump and finished runner up in the 300m. In the 200m he finished 6th.

Lateefah Idris (Y10) finished 9th in the Junior Discus as the field was blown away by 3 throwers throwing over 10 – 15m’s further than the rest.

Verona Conroy (Y11) competing in the senior girls 800m even though she was eligible for the intermediate finished 6th in the semi final.

Finally Kusha Smith (Y9) finished 5th in the junior girls 800m and 2nd in the 300m. Both times were PB’s.

Congratulations to all these students.
