HBHS win the Maadi Cup!
It was a spectacular day of finals racing on Lake Ruataniwha on the first Friday and Saturday of April in Twizel, and our rowers performed brilliantly, with our Under 18 Maadi crew winning in stunning style by a boat-length. The A Finals results are listed below, and we congratulate every rower who represented our school in such fine style. Overall, HBHS finished as runners-up in both the Top Sweep Oar School and in the Top Overall School competitions.
In addtion, we congratulate William Mackintosh and Ethan Johnson on being invited to trial for the 2022 New Zealand Under 19 Rowing Squad, at Lake Karapiro, during the upcoming April school holidays. We wish them every success and look forward to seeing how they get on.
A special thanks and congratulations to Mr Glenn Ross and Mrs Lynnette Ross for all of their hard work and sacrifices to help our crews achieve such successes. Tino pai!
