Denim Winiata and Tile Fetu travelled to Timaru to compete against the top athletes in the South Island in the Secondary Athletics Championships (SISS Athletics).
Following Canterbury Athetics Championships, we had four Hillmorton High School students qualify to compete at SISS Athletics.
– Line Kalolo (Javelin)
– Tile Fetu (Shot put)
– Suli Maka (Shot put)
– Denim Winiata (Shot put)
Out of these students who qualified, Tile Fetu and Denim Winiata made the trip to compete with impressive results to follow;
Tile Fetu placed 6th out of 10 competitors with a throw of 12.31 meters in the U19 male category.
Denim Winiata placed 12th out of a larger pool of athletes with a throw of 20.39m in the U16 female category.
Well done to these two athletes.
