Summer tournament week proved very successful for Hillmorton, taking out the competition unbeaten!
This competition ran over two days at Pioneer Stadium. Our senior girl’s team had a strong start to the competition and went into pool 2 seeded top, along with Papanui High School, Logan Park High School, St Margaret’s College and Opihi College.
The top finalists came down to Hillmorton High, St Margaret’s and Papanui High. After beating St Margaret’s in their semi-final our girls went into the final against Papanui High for the final game of the competition. Hillmorton High won the first two sets, off to a great start. Papanui High then came back to win the third set. Our girls fired back and went on to win the final set and therefore, the competition!
Congratulations to this team and well done to all the girls and their coach Mr Chris Freear. We look forward to this team competing to retain their title at next year’s Summer Tournament Week.
