Canterbury Secondary Schools Touch Championships

25 February 2017

Canterbury Touch Champions... "6 in a Row"!

Congratulations to the Christchurch Boys' High School Senior Touch team for winning the Canterbury Secondary Schools Touch Championships last Saturday (25 February), for the 6th consecutive year. 

After a long day and after four undefeated games the boys faced a torrid test from a well drilled St. Thomas' team in the final. Fortunately, they played to their potential and look very much like the team who, late last year, finished 4th at the National Touch Championships. Final score 10-4. The team now qualifies for the South Island Championships next weekend as top seed and have an opportunity to win this tournament for the first time.

Luke Smith (Yr 9) - 3rd U15 points race

Bailey O'Donnell - 2nd U20 points race

CBHS won the top School Trophy for the first time ever -  18 riders vs the powerhouse teams of Auckland Grammar, Palmerston North Boys' and Takapuna Grammar (these schools bring 40+ riders to this national event). 

"This win has to be one of the most stunning wins in the 50 year history of the event" says Kevin Seale, Chairman of Cycling NZ Schools. "It compares to the 5/100 of a second win by Palmerston North boys High in the Sir Bernard Fergusson Trophy in 2016. This all has to be seen in the light of the fact that cycling is a Tier 1 Olympic sport and that the very best youth riders, many who have represented New Zealand at Junior world Championships and numerous overseas events were present. 

The HA Joli cup was first presented in 1970 and then revised to its present structure in 2009. It is prized by the large Auckland schools as a symbol of cycling supremacy.

It could not be more fitting for Christchurch Boys High School to have won this and be defending that title in 2018 when the National Championships come to the South Island for the first time in the 51st year of competition."

NZ Cycling - Coach of the Year

11 May 2017


Anyone who is involved in cycling coaching should be in awe of Gary McNaughton, the coach of Christchurch Boys’ High cycling team. Gary McNaughton is manager and coach of the team and does it almost entirely on his own. At a local level he has a team of approximately 35 riders and always brings the best of them to School Road Nationals. Inevitably his boys are amongst the medals.

Last year his team won two gold medals and a silver in the individual events and two bronze medals in the TTT. Over the previous 5 years, his riders have taken home 5 national titles in the individual events.

At an Island and Regional level the Christchurch Boys’ High School cycling team is without doubt the dominant force in school cycling. Their list of successes is extensive but two examples stand out.

  • They have been winners of the Canterbury Schools TTT Senior Championships every year since 2005; and
  • they have won the South Island Championship Top School Points Trophy every year since 2012.

Gary would be the first to admit that he does not attend to all of the personal coaching of his riders. His role is that of the classic school coach who enables riders to come together and achieve at a maximum level as a team. Many of his riders would not have achieved individual success without Gary being the catalyst to their riding development. These include multiple National Champion, Michael Vink, and the youngest ever winner of the Tour of Southland, Josh Atkins.

He does this entirely voluntarily over and above his role as Teacher and Year 12 Dean at Christchurch Boys’ High School while at the same time parenting three young boys.

CBHS congratulates Gary on his Coach of the Year title.

18 September 2017

Overnight sensations are a rare breed in sport. It often takes years and years of mastery to reach success at the highest levels – now even at the schoolboy level, the advancement of professionalism in rugby has increased the level of competition to unseen heights in New Zealand. Just earning a cap playing 1st XV rugby is a treasured achievement. Getting a call-up to the New Zealand Schoolboys rugby squad is a privilege reserved for few, which makes Rico Syme’s improbable selection one of the great rugby stories of the year.

Syme will join the Crusaders academy from next year and start his path to professional rugby, an incredible feat for a player who wasn’t even playing this time last year.

Tahu Kaa-Goodwillie selected for U18 Maori Side

06 October 2017

Tahu Kaa-Goodwillie has been playing the sport he loves since age four and the hard work has paid off with his inclusion in the under-18 Maori side.

The 17-year-old, Ngati Porou and Ngai Tahu, was a standout performer in this year’s UC Championship at second-five with a number of line breaks and a huge defensive workload cementing his spot in the starting Christchurch Boys’ High School side and earning him a call-up for higher honours.

National U18 Hockey Regional Tournament, Whangarei

21 July 2017

Four players from the school 1st hockey XI - Moss Jackson, Angus Keast, Liam Sharp and Simon Yorston - were all members of the Canterbury Hockey Regional ("A" team) Under 18 team in 2017. The eight-week campaign culminated in the team taking part in the National Under 18 Regional Tournament held in Whangarei over the first 8 days of the July school holidays.

A virus hit the team, affecting individuals across the course of the whole week, one game mid-week having only four fit-and-healthy players on deck. This impacted on performances but the team still produced solid, but not spectacular, efforts until week's end.

Having struggled to score goals, two of the games going to shoot-out at game's end, the team still managed to finish with the most points at the end of pool play. The tournament format saw the team progress through the second-round of games, and from there, into the final.

The final, against Central, saw Canterbury in full control by half- time, up 3-0, and the icing was put on the cake with three further goals in the fourth quarter, the match finishing 6-0 to Canterbury.

Simon Yorston performed with distinction in defence throughout the week, as part of a tight defensive unit.
