Super 8 Update

Congratulations to the HBHS 1st XI Football team on winning their first ever back-to-back Super 8 title, beating Palmerston North Boys' High School 2 - 0 in the final.  This was on the back of a huge 6 - 0 semi-final win against Hastings Boys' High School and an unbeaten run through pool play, with the team and goalkeeper Ryan Watson conceding only 1 goal in the entire competition.  HBHS player Cade Fleming was named as the tournament's Most Valuable Player.  In other tournaments, the HBHS 1st XI Hockey team had a slight stumble in their Rankin Cup preparations, eventually finishing third, with a 10 - 1 demolition of New Plymouth Boys' High School in their play-off, after losing their semi-final match 2 - 3 against Palmerston North Boys' High School.  A couple of early losses cost the HBHS Basketball team a spot in the playoffs, but they eventually finished fifth, beating Gisborne Boys' High School in the playoff for fifth and sixth.  Results of note for the team were wins against Gisborne in pool play by 25 goals, and a win against Palmerston North Boys' High School by 16 goals.  Once again, congratulations to all of these teams on their efforts, and a huge thank you to the coaching staff and parents who worked so hard to get our teams to these competitions.
