Age Group Track Cycling National Championships - Invercargill

12 March 2018

Day one of the Vantage Age Group Track Cycling National Championships in Invercargill saw seven New Zealand records and two Championship records broken.  Around 170 riders from around the country have come to the SIT Zero Fees Velodrome to battle it out for age group and Masters titles over the next three days.

Rising Canterbury star Laurence Pithie was the first to break a New Zealand record in the U17 2000m Individual Pursuit with a time of 2:15.674 in qualifying, to better the mark of Tasman’s Finn Fisher-Black. Pithie then followed this up in winning the gold medal during the evening’s final.

“It was a pretty tough ride this morning, and I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to back it up tonight but I managed to do 0.5 sec of my morning time so I’m pretty pleased with that,” said Pithie.

Canterbury Triathlon Championships

19 March 2018

On a magnificently sunny day on the 8th March, 10 students attended the Canterbury Secondary Schools Triathlon at Sumner.

We had 6 students competing individually across three age groups; Tylah Davidson and Ryan Cooke in the U14 boys, Will Taylor, Henry Allott and Will Griffiths in the U16 boys, and Logan Currie in the U19 boys.

Notable results from the individual races include Logan Currie continuing his fine form in his busy triathlon schedule, finishing 2nd overall and 2nd in his age category, Will Taylor 6th overall and 2nd in his age group, and Henry Allott finishing 5th in his age group.

In an 11th hour entry into the teams race, Logan Currie decided to complete another two thirds of a triathlon when joining Bailey O’Donnell (cycle) to finish 1st out of all the teams and 1st in the U19 age category.

Callum Haughin (swim) and Henry Kircher (cycle) came out of retirement and blew off the proverbial cobwebs to join Nathan Cochrane (run) to compete in the U19 Boys team race, finishing in a commendable 3rd place.

School Exchanges

Auckland Grammar & Westlake Boys' High School

Auckland Grammar 25-27 February

Grammar proved to be worthy opposition across all codes but good wins by the golf and tennis teams awarding the exchange 2-1 to CBHS. The 1st XI did not have one of their best matches, however, losing outright with 5 mins remaining in the match on day 3. A fantastic 170* by Ollie White, who is the son of the NZ Cricket CEO David White, took the game away from CBHS on the first innings and by trailing it meant that the 1st XI was always in catch-up mode. Grammar set CBHS an unrealistic 2nd innings chase and the boys just failed to hang on for a draw. The Grammar boys were obviously delighted to have beaten the reigning New Zealand champions.

The golf team had a good result defeating Grammar over two days at the Russley and Shirley golf courses. The CBHS tennis team held on to beat Grammar 11 - 10 in a close tie.


Westlake Boys' High School 4-6 March

Westlake arrived at CBHS with tennis, golf and a 1st XI and Colts cricket team. Former Zimbabwean cricket international Paul Strang is now leading Westlake's sports programme and so certainly the cricket boys thought they might be in for a tough challenge

Day three was unfortunately punctuated by rain and this effected the 1st XI cricket result, with Westlake being 66 – 4 chasing 188 to win when play was suspended due to the weather. The Colts XI had two good wins in a T20 match (CBHS 158 vs WBHS 98) and a 50 over game (CBHS 220/9 vs WBHS 181). Day 3’s 50 over game was not completed due to rain.

Golf and tennis had successful ties beating Westlake 6 and ½ to 3 and ½, and 14 matches to 7 respectively. Matches were played at the Clearwater, Russley and Shirley golf courses, and at the Te Kura and Wilding Park tennis venues.
