Okaihau College is host- ing their annual Team Sports Awards this even- ing, September 5. Guest speaker is Olympic silver medallist Blair Tuke from Kerikeri. Blair last visited the college in 2011 and spoke of his goals and working towards competing at this year's Olympics. Staff and students look forward to welcom- ing him back. The awards recognise the achievements of out- standing players includ- ing netball, soccer, rugby, rugby league, hockey, touch and bas- ketball, and will also acknowledge the work of the many volunteer coaches and managers who support the teams. Hard work pays off with fine results Rural success: O Manaia players, in black, Wihihi Shelford, with ball, and Roger Ward take on the KKM o Kaikohe defence. O Manaia School years 7 and 8 boys and girls bas- ketball teams travelled to Te Puna Ora in Kai- taia on August 22 for the Far North Schools tour- nament. It was a magnificent venue with two full-size basketball courts with digital displays. The boys team was on form, making it to the semifinals where they beat Kerikeri High School 12-10. In their final game they lost against Te Kura Kaupapa Maori o Kaikohe 14-5 and overall were runners-up out of nine teams. The O Manaia girls team was not quite so lucky, ending up fourth out of seven teams. O Manaia has worked hard towards its vision of developing basketball in the small rural school, and congratulates the players and coaches. Effort earns medals Waka ama champion: Aaron Thomas from Opononi brings home the medals to Northland. Deputy principal of Opononi Area School, Aaron Thomas, has returned from Canada after competing in the World Va'a (Waka ama) Sprint Championships. The event is biennial and this year was held in Calgary from August 12 to 17. Aaron paddled for the Vaka Manu team that won a silver medal in the V6 500 metres and a bronze medal in the V12 500m sprints. He said it was hard training that earned the team a place on the podium. For three months Aaron travelled to Auckland from Koutu in the Hokianga at weekends to train with the team which also holds the New Zealand National Long Distance and National Sprint championship titles. He says he's very grateful for the support he received from the Ngati Tuwharetoa Settlement Trust, the school and his family and friends. As well as his own training, Aaron and his colleague Matt Lawson have coached the school's teams to four national sprint titles and numerous silver and bronze placings. The school is ranked one of the top in New Zealand for waka ama.
