Mission Heights Junior College students, Brooklyn-Rose Timu and Troy Korewha (both 8F1) took part in the inaugural Oceania Cup Tag Tournament held over 3 days, in South Auckland. Both represented Aotearoa Maori, with Troy in the U14 Boys and Brooklyn in the U14 Mixed Team. Competition was fierce with teams from as far away as Sāmoa, Tonga and The Cook Island’s. The Aotearoa Maori boys Team earned a Silver medal in the tournament and the Mixed team won the Gold Medal in the final!
Tag is a great sport for young people and often used as a pre-season warm up and fitness for other winter sports. Great friends, Brooklyn and Troy, have played netball, tag and performed Kapa Haka together during their schooling, putting their heart and soul into training over summer. Fantastic effort Brooklyn and Troy – making MHJC proud!
