By Michael McKenzie | Posted: Wednesday April 12, 2017

Kavanagh College travelled to Oamaru this year for the tournament.

On April 9/10 over 100 students travelled north to Oamaru to take part in the annual sports exchange with St Kevin's, Roncalli, St Peter's, and Verdon. 5 different sports were being played with Football, Rugby, Hockey, Netball, and basketball. St Kevin’s college was a great Venue to host the Tournament with their awesome facilities and fields. We achieved some great results with boys football winning all their games, the girls' football team winning 2 out of 3 games, the girls' Basketball team won 3 out of their 4 games, the boys' hockey won 3 out of 4 games. The First XV also managed a good win over St Kevin's and a narrow loss to Verdon. All our students stayed at Camp Iona in Herbert on Sunday night, which was a great venue.

All schools came together on Sunday afternoon for a church service which celebrated our special character and a fitting way to end day 1.

My Thanks to Iris Bugarski, Mike Campbell,  Mike Waterworth, Tim Armstrong, and Emily Stevens for their support on the trip . Overall we finished 2nd equal .
