Term 3 Korfball Tournament

On Monday, two teams for Heaton participated in a Christchurch tournament for the sport Korfball. We had a range of twelve teams from eight schools that participated in this event. All teams did very well.

Our second team (Heaton 2) had an unlucky tournament and they unfortunately ended in last position, but played very well and pushed their opponents. Where our first team (Heaton 1) had outstanding performances that put them into the final. The final was very intense with every second counting. Sadly the Heaton team came out on the underside of this game with only three points in it. Mind you Kirkwood were a very good team and put up a fight.

To wrap things up I would like to congratulate all of the teams for their phenomenal sportsmanship and teamwork.

A huge congratulations to Holly Jackson and Mitchell McMillan who got in the tournament team that was announced at the end of the day. This team is made up of four boys and four girls from all schools that played incredibly during the games. They don’t do anything together but it is an honour to be in that team.

Lastly, I hope that all of the players return for the next tournament so we can get that trophy back that we have had from 2012 to this year.
