This year we sent one team and two individuals to this tournament at the Christchurch Golf Club (Shirley):

Team – Amy Weng, Hayato Miya, Jasmine Clancy and Hiromune Kakeda

Individuals – Thomas James and Mark Chang

The team placed 4th. Hiroki Miya and Juliana Hung were both unavailable to play in this tournament, due to being away with the NZ Junior Golf team.

Canterbury Secondary Schools’ Match Play Championships

24 September 2018

Due to a lack of entries from schools, the only teams competing were:

A grade – Burnside High School vs Christchurch Boys’ High School A

B grade – Ashburton College vs Christchurch Boys’ High School B

Our team consisted of:

Jasmine Clancy, Hayato Miya, Hiroki Miya and Amy Weng

They beat CBHS A, 4-0, so a great victory for them!

Congratulations to Juliana Hung (Finalist – Sportswoman of the Year) and Hiroki Miya (Finalist and Winner of the Sportsman of the Year). Juliana, however, received the award of the Principal’s Cup for Outstanding Achievement, for her selection into the NZ Team competing at the Youth Olympics in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in October 2018.

The following golfers also received the following top awards at the Canterbury Golf prizegiving earlier this year:

Hiroki Miya – Canterbury Junior Mens Golfer of the Year

Juliana Hung – Canterbury Womens’ Golfer of the Year and Canterbury Junior Womens’ Golfer of the Year

Hayato Miya – Most Promising Junior Boy Golfer of the Year

Amy Weng – Most Promising Junior Girl Golfer of the Year

Jasmine Clancy is also an up-and-coming golfer, so the future looks good for the Burnside High School Golf Team! We say goodbye to Hiroki Miya, and thank him for his amazing contribution to the Golf team the past five years! His younger brother Yuki starts at Burnside High next year, so great to have another Miya family member at Burnside High, along with Hayato.

Thank you to all the golfing parents who have supported me, and their children, this year.
