If your daughter enjoys sport but isn’t sure which code is right for her, Just Play might be the answer.
With 33 different sports at Westlake Girls it can be a bit overwhelming to know how to get involved. Just Play is a chance to have a go at some of the sports that students may not have encountered – like lacrosse, volleyball, table tennis, squash, ultimate frisbee, tag and futsal. It allows students to “have a go” at the sports which are taught in 4-week blocks throughout the year. Just Play happens on Wednesdays from 3.20 – 4.30pm. The cost is $10 for each sport. In Term 1 we are starting with lacrosse and then badminton. You can find all the details, along with a registration form HERE.
Well done to the 13 students in our waterpolo team who placed third in a pre-season tournament recently at St Cuthbert’s. There were 10 teams competing, so that’s a great start to the year!
Year 10 student Kate Borton (pictured left) competed at the Auckland Athletics Senior Track and Field Championships recently, winning both the 400m and 800mm events. Kate also won gold in the 400m and 800m events at the North Island Colgate Games in January.
We have another young talented athlete who has just joined the Westlake whānau – Karmen-Elizabeth Maritz.
In January 2021, Karmen-Elizabeth (pictured right) participated in both the North Island (Inglewood) Colgate Games (8-10 January) and the South Island (Nelson) Colgate games (15-17 January) where she represented her club, North Harbour Bays Athletics. She placed first in both her field items, shotput and discus, at both events, winning 4x Gold medals in total.
On the 2nd of February, she broke the North Harbour Bays 12Y Girls Shotput record that stood since 2011, with a new distance of 11.85m. Karmen-Elizabeth also broke the 750g club discus record twice this season with her current record a distance of 44.21m.
This weekend (6 & 7 February), Karmen-Elizabeth participated in the Auckland Athletics Championship at Mount Smart Stadium in the women’s under 14 category where she won 3 x gold medals in events Shotput, Discuss and Javelin.
