Well done to our Year 9-10 Athletes that competed at Rawhiti Domain in the Canterbury Secondary Schools’ Athletics Prelims. We had some exceptional results from our school – one of Canterbury’s smallest Secondary Schools. We have had the most ever athletes qualify for finals in Hillview history, including a 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th in qualifying – so we are hopeful of some top three placings on Saturday. Also, two athletes – Wade Horne and Fia Lai-Kong have qualified for three individual finals or semi-finals (athletes are only able to enter three events!) – an exceptional effort.

1st Top Qualifier: Fia Lai-Kong – U14 Girls’ Discus
2nd Top Qualifier: Fia Lai-Kong – U14 Girls’ Shot Put
