Dear Parents and Caregivers I hope you and your family have remained safe and dry…
A group of eight students headed off to the very prestigious Auckland Athletics Championships at Mt Smart Stadium on Wednesday, 28 March.
They individually qualified as a result of finishing top three at the Western Zone Athletics.
The level of competition on the day was a record high although this didn’t get in the way of Zoe Taylor. Zoe claimed a top three spot in each of her three events – 1st in the 100m Hurdles, 1st in the 200m and 2nd in the Senior Girls Long Jump – an incredible achievement!
Kaila Ru also claimed herself two places on the podium – 3rd in the Intermediate Girls Discus and 1st place in High Jump.
Congratulations to all of the Rutherford Athletes – an incredible achievement to compete at an Auckland Athletics Championship – Emily Muspratt, Nakita Ru, Kulukona Aho, Mollie Tagaloa, Joshua Larking and Ezra Feau.
