UNISS Netball – Tournament Week

KKHS v KaitaiaDuring the first week of September the Kerikeri High School UNISS (Upper North Island Secondary School Sports) netball team attended tournament week in Tauranga.  This year was our first year in A Grade, so it was a very daunting task coming up against the very top of the table Auckland teams in the first two days, with the first game against MAGS (runner up in the elite Auckland competition and overall 2nd place at UNISS).  While KKHS lost the game, it was a great introduction to that level of netball and certainly lifted the intensity of our girls netball for the remainder of the week.   The fantastic results throughout tournament week ensured that the KKHS UNISS team will remain in A Grade for 2019, they placed 27th out of 32 teams in A Grade.  Sincere thanks must go to Mrs Hayley Webb – Coach, Mrs Susan Manning – Manager, Ms Chelsee Peita – Physiotherapist, Stacey Ferguson Umpire.  Thanks also to Mrs Brenda Winikerei and Ms Jo Hona for their continued support of our UNISS girls.

The Kerikeri High School UNISS team: Bryna McCondach (Captain), Holly Mather, Lanaya Morgan, Madaya Butler, Armanya Potatau, Leah Dawson, Leilani Erwin, Olivia Bell, Manaia Webb, Nicole Manning, Eva Fulton,  Aaliyah Brownlee.
