Sports Round Up 22-28 June

In recent sports results, the Junior A Badminton side lost against Wellington High on Thursday afternoon. However, there was good news in the CSW Junior Wellington Champs on Wednesday as the Rongotai A pairing of Nick Lowcay and Liam Kingston qualified for the final, before eventually going down to HIBS in a tight encounter. The senior badminton side have their tournament next Wednesday and are shaping up for it nicely despite going down 4-3 also to HIBS last Friday.

The Senior A basketball side lost their first game of the season against St Pats Town on Friday, going down 96-81. They will be looking to make amends in tonight’s game against Aotea College.  The Junior A side had a good win mid-week against Scots 63-46.

The 1st XI hockey side has continued their impressive start to the season, beating Tawa 3-1 on Friday night. Goals were scored by Sajan Patel (2) and Satish Cussins. 2nd placed Rongotai take on top placed Wellington College this evening at the NHS, starting at 4.45pm. Good luck tonight boys!

In football, the 1st XI beat Tawa College at Tawa 2-1 last Saturday, with both goals (including a penalty) scored by Jesse Randall. The 1st XI play Wairarapa College at Rongotai tomorrow, kick-off at 10.45. The developing 15 Gold side lost 4-2 to Scots College, which highlights a great improvement since their heavy loss to the same opposition at the start of the season.

In rugby, the 1st XV lost a thriller 23-22 to HIBS last Saturday in a game they were expected to win. Rongotai started slowly, but rallied in the last ¼ to almost snatch victory at the end. Congratulations to the U15 side who played well to record their first win of the season beating Porirua College 19-12.

By signing up to play sport in 2018 you and your parents have agreed to the terms and conditions of playing sport, including showing sportsmanship, fair play and also paying the required sports fees. A few boys still have remaining sport fees and we need these paid ASAP. These fees are required to cover team fees, uniforms, balls, cones and other sports equipment. By not paying fees, we cannot continue to provide the quality sport experiences you enjoy so much. Please insure all fees are paid immediately or face being stood down for the rest of the season.

If you are unsure as to whether you have paid, you can see Mr Dixon in the Sports Office or Ms Wilkinson at the college shop. The school can also set up automatic payments.
