On Tuesday 20th October, Otamatea High School students hit the road to push themselves as hard as possible for the annual road race. Year 10 student Morgan Bull won this year’s road race, finishing in a time of 19.32. Second place went to Isaac Ben Donald with a time of 21.20 ahead of third place, Jack Hodgson with a time of 21.52.
Year 12 student Trista Comer (4th overall) took out the girl’s race in a time of 23.15. Second place was year 9 students Sophie van Harlingen and Ella Crum with a time of 24.53.
147 students finished. The day was hot with very little breeze so students were very happy to get their juicy as they finished.
The winning Iwi went to Ngapuhi who pulled away with points from the girls having 8 girls from Ngapuhi in the top 12.
A big thank you to all the staff, parents and students who helped to make the event run so smoothly.
