Blue Mountain Sports Exchange - 11th Jun 2014

Blue Mountain Sports Exchange
On Wednesday 11 June, 107 students travelled to Tapanui to compete in the annual sports exchange with Blue Mountain College.  Tokomairiro played 5 games of netball at the community centre ranging from the A team to the Year 7 Toko Junior 2 team. Unfortunately we were to loss all the netball games, with the B team coming the closest in points with a three goal loss at 18-21, A team; 36-16, White team; 43-8, Year 8 team; 24-3, and Year 7 team; 12-2. All games were played in good spirit and great sportsmanship. The rugby teams were the highlight for the exchange with all three teams clinching wins from Blue Mountain. The 1st XV won 35-12, the Year 9/10 had a spectacular win 76-0 and the Year 7/8 game was a slightly closer game which could have gone either way but Toko was lucky enough to hold them out till the final whistle winning 24-22. The Senior boys and junior boys basketball were up against strong competition with both opposition teams playing in a regularly competition. Their scores were senior boys lost 15-42 and junior boys lost 14-42. Blue Mountain College were great hosts and provided a warm welcome and super afternoon tea to end a great day of competition. Thank you to all the parent coaches who travelled up to Tapanui, the time and effort you put into your teams is greatly appreciated.  Thank you to the PTA for subsiding this trip and it was great to see so many teams participating.
