During week 2 of Term 4, 5 of South's sports teams participated in the South Island Year 7 & 8 Indoor Tournament.
Our Boys and Girls Basketball teams participated in a strong field, with the boys winning all of their games on the first day, qualifying into the top 6. They faced some tough competition, so unfortunately only managed to gain 4th place.
The girls showed tremendous grit and improvement, to gain a place in the 3/4th play off, which they took out against Ashburton Intermediate 24-8, after drawing with them the previous day.
Our Squash team, who participated during the Tuesday weekly sport and gained 4th place during this competition, managed to go one better and gain 3rd place after some close battles.
The Volleyball team, which only came together 4 days before this tournament, gelled quickly and after some extremely strong performances on the first day, qualified again for a 3/4th playoff! This team finished strong, to take out the game and gain the bronze.
During the Tuesday Winter sport competition, our Table Tennis teams performed extremely well, however only consisted of Boys. For this tournament we needed a mixture of boys and girls in these teams, so called in some keen athletes, to make up these numbers. Both our A and B teams played extremely well, with the B team finishing 1st and the A team 3rd. A huge well done to all of these players, especially the girls who stepped up to the mark very quickly!
