Kerikeri High School student excels at boxing over Labour weekend break

 Kyle Chen has just won the Presidents Cup Boxing Championship in Taiwan (21st – 26th October). It is a superb achievement because, unlike in New Zealand where he currently competes as a Junior (Kyle is 15 years old), he competed at the Taiwan tournament in the Youth division (Under 19 yo). His opponent last night was an experienced 18 year old boxer and Taiwan champion who will be representing Taiwan at the Youth World Championships next month in Russia. Kyle said it was the toughest contest he’s had in a while, and that his opponent was very strong.

 Kyle also won the President’s Cup last year, in the 70kg Junior division.

Recent achievements for 2016

Kyle won the Australian 2016 National Open Golden Gloves on Saturday afternoon, 27 August, in Brisbane. He competed in the Junior Male 75kg division, and overcame two Aussie State champions on his way to taking the Gold medal.

 That achievement follows on the heels of him winning a National title (his third), also in the Junior Male 75kg division, at the 2016 Boxing New Zealand National Championships, held in Rotorua, 19 to 23 July.

 Kyle has competed in ten bouts this year, for ten wins, which also includes an Auckland Provincial title, and Southland Provincial title.

Pacific Rim (interdoms)team sailing regatta 24th – 28th September


The pinnacle of the season where four New Zealand Teams battled it out against four Australian teams. The regatta was very close with only a couple of race results splitting 1st to 4th. Unfortunately for Kerikeri things did not go our way with only about a day and a half out of the three days sailing counting towards the results when ended up 4th. The sailors were really disappointed with the result but gained praise from Australian school for how they reacted and dealt with the problems they faced during the 3 days. Those who will still be part of the squad are already looking forward to next year and another chance to get back on top.

Winter Tournament Week August 29th – September 2nd

Four winter sporting teams travelled to various destinations around the North Island to enjoy and participate at winter tournament week. This is a chance to play against other schools outside of your weekly club games and judge how good your team is, experience a week away with your team mates (and a week off school) and in some cases see a part of New Zealand you may never get to visit again. Results as follows:

Mixed Hockey 9th at their tournament in Gisborne

Football Boys 7th at their tournament in Taupo

Football Girls 9th at their tournament in Rotorua

Netball 8th B Grade at their tournament in Papakura. Lisa Mather was selected for the UNISS B Grade tournament team – well done.

Kerikeri High School wishes to thank all coaches, managers, parent helpers and supporters who made this week possible.
