NZ Selection for Kristin Students
It has been an exciting week for 5 Kristin athletes who have all been selected into NZ teams and squads. Lucia Doak has been selected in the NZ Secondary Schools Water Polo Team to take on the Australians in a 3 match series later in December. We wish Lucia and the NZ team all the very best. Lucia has already represented NZ at the world youth games in July.
Capping off what has been a great snow sports season for Kristin, 3 skiers have been selected in the Alpine FIS NZ squad for 2019. This means they are all eligible to compete in the two main international events in Canada and Italy next year. Mikayla Smyth year 9, Michol Hinton year 9 and Harrison Messenger in year 10 have all made the NZ squad. Both Mikayla and Harrison are the top-ranked NZ skiers in their age group.
In synchronised swimming, year 8 student Vanessa Burmeister has been selected into the NZ Development Squad for 2019. This a direct result of Vanessa's outstanding efforts throughout 2018.
