Otahuhu College took a small contingent of 6 boys to the Central East Zone athletics championship, held at Mt Smart Stadium on Wednesday 4th of March. The weather was not favourable for throwing as there was quite a bit of rain throughout the day. However this had little effect of the actual competition. Our students performed beyond expectations with 4 of our 6 throwers qualifying for the Auckland Championship on Wednesday 25th of March at Mt Smart once again. Congratulations too all our boys who competed and managed to all finish in the Top 8.
Sione Tupou enjoyed the competition and was very relaxed and finished 2nd in the Senior Boys Shotput. Matiasi Lolesio surprised himself and finished 2nd Junior Boys Discus. Thomas Tuakalau finished first in the Junior Boys shotput with a winning throw on his very last attempt. Willie Taukafa was quick to establish himself in the Intermediate Boys competition winning both the shotput and discus competitions. These students will continue with their training in the lead up to the Auckland Championship.
