Basketball Update - 13 September

On Monday, 3rd September, the Wentworth Lions played the Orewa College 1 team and won 15 to 8. We had a very good first half and some say it was our best game, but our second half didn't quite meet expectations because we got tired and got a bit confident. The other team was mostly a bit smaller but still put up a decent fight.

The following week, on 10th September, we played Kingsway No Limits and won 38 to 16. We had a very good first half and got in the majority of the shots and blocked many from the other team, although in our second half we started to get a bit lazy and missed shots and rebounds. The other team were all quite small but still managed to have some good plays.

Wentworth Gymnasts Gold & Silver at AIMS!

Our Year 7 and 8 Wentworth gymnasts travelled to Tauranga last week for the AIMS Games Rhythmic Gymnastics competition and won a total of nine medals.

In the Twisters competition (for Novice and Club Level 1-3 gymnasts), the team of Sophia Gardiner, Teresa Sell and Natalie Brewer won Gold medals.  All three gymnasts also took top placings individually with Sophia winning Gold, Teresa winning Silver and Natalie taking Bronze.

In the Flyers competition (for Novice gymnasts), the team of Imogen Herbert, Charlotte Sancto-Jones and Bethany Smith won Silver medals. Their individual placings were Imogen 4th, Charlotte 5th and Bethany 6th.

A huge "thank you!" to coaches Kate Heard and Claire Wiggin for all their expertise and the time they have put into coaching the girls.

These were amazing results from our gymnasts - well done girls!
