At yesterday's Auckland Secondary Schools' Champion of Champions Tennis Tournament the Lynfield College pair Kirby Wotherspoon and Caitlin Molloy reached the semi-finals of the Senior Girls Doubles. Although they lost to the top seeds St Kentigerns this was still a magnificent effort in this tough and prestigious competition.
Congratulations Kirby and Caitlin!

With the cooler weather making an unwelcome return, the students were very pleased that last weekend was sunny for their first games of the winter season. TheLynfield sports uniforms will once again be visible in all major sporting codes, with the students very keen to do their best for themselves and their school. We look forward to reporting their successes.

The annual tussle in the major sporting codes between Lynfield and Mt Maunganui Colleges did not disappoint this year in terms of which college was to win the overall trophy.

Congratulations to the following students for their recent outstanding sporting achievements:
Lauren Irving and Marisa Clark are both Auckland representatives in Artistic Gymnastics and at the last Gym Sport Nationals they were both placed in the Top 10 in the country.
Success depends on an intensive training regime with 18 – 24 hours a week spent at Tri Star Gymnasium. Lauren and Marisa have been enjoying gymnastics for 9 years and have competed all round the country.
Skill levels climb from Step 1 to Step 9 then Junior International and Senior International. Lauren and Marisa are currently competing at Step 9, giving them the opportunity to go to the Hawaii Champs next year if selected.
Tyla Nathan-Wong has had overwhelming success this year in her chosen sports. A few weeks ago she was awarded the Dux Ludorum honour at the college's Festival Awards; this last week she has been on stage receiving major awards at the Sport Waitakere Koru Awards and at the ASB Young Sportsman and Sportswoman Awards dinner.
The New Zealand Touch representative received the Maori achievement in sport award and the Junior Sportswoman award at the Koru Awards.
At the ASB awards over 500 attended the special dinner at Eden Park where 160 students were recognised for excellence in 30 sporting codes. Tyla won the Touch Award and was one of the finalists in the Young Sportswoman of the Year - won by golfer Lydia Ko from Pinehurst School.
