They played against some really good teams and ended up getting 4th. Thank you very much to all the parents, supporters, coaches and umpire who cheered them on.

Mya went with the Oamaru Pathfinders Gym Club where they got placed third overall in the Step 1 grade and Mya got first on the beam in her grade. Congratulations and well done.
Congratulations to Elenoa Asi who has recorded two New Zealand Junior swimming times in the 50 and 100 m breaststroke. These times allow Elenoa to compete in the New Zealand Junior Swimming Champs which will be held in Auckland in February next year. To help obtain these times, Elenoa swims 6 times a week for 1 1/2 hours which includes mornings. She is hoping to get another time in the backstroke event and will go to lots of swim meets in order to get this. Well done.
