The Golf Report

It has been a busy month for our golfers, with a record 52 boys representing HBHS at the annual Waikato Teams Golf Day in Matamata.  The competition was an ambrose format where all players tee off and take the best ball, with the only rule being that you must use three tee shots from each player.  Mitchell Kay, Campbell Crouch, Elliott Jenkins and Sam McArthur retained the trophy for the fourth year in a row and collected a $50 voucher to use at The Base just prior to Mother's Day.  Four out of the nine teams collected gift vouchers, finishing second, fourth and fifth as well.  Jack Devane, Andrew Carney, Harry Petre and Declan O'Brien won the Division 2 competition in Morrinsville.  

This week HBHS attempted to defend the Waikato Secondary Schools Golf Championship, a title we have won for the past two years, and had to eventually settle for second in 2018.  The HBHS team was outclassed by St Peter's Cambridge whose top golfer scored a five under total of 67, which included a hole in one.  Our Captain of Golf, Luke Kidd, scored a respectable 75 and was the best of our four golfers.  We will be trying to get a wild card entry into the National Championships held in Palmerston North later this year.
