Earlier in the year, some of our students took part in the Hamilton Open and Graded, Waipa Open and Graded and national air pistol shooting competitions. Through these events, Loretta Knights (Yr 13) has been selected to represent New Zealand at the Oceania Games, held in Brisbane at the end of October. Loretta will compete in the Junior Women’s Air Pistol event.
This term we have 10 students training to take part in the annual national McMillan Cup competition taking place on 30 September. Extra training from Commonwealth Games medal winner, Greg Yelavich has enhanced the weekly coaching given by John Peacock and Howard Kay, members of the Tauranga Pistol Club.
There are 2 fundraising events to support Loretta to get to the Oceania Games – a Rialto movie night and a corporate shoot run by members of the Tauranga Pistol Club.
