Mercy Cup Tournament

Emma Goddard —

On Tuesday 21 June, Roncalli Travelled down to Oamaru for the annual Mercy Cup Tournament, hosted by St Kevin's College.

The students braved the cold conditions and we were super excited to have a beautiful sunny day.

The following schools participated:

  • Villa Maria College (Christchurch)
  • Marian College (Christchurch)
  • Roncalli College (Timaru)
  • St Kevin’s College (Oamaru)

The following sports/grades Roncalli competed in were:

  • Netball: Senior A, B, C, Junior Year 10, and Year 9.
  • Hockey A Grade

To attend such an event would not be possible with the support of many people so I would like to acknowledge the following:

  • Coaches, Managers and Players
  • Umpires and Referees
  • Staff, Parents, and Roncalli Students
  • Sarah Clapperton (St Kevin’s Sports Coordinator)
  • Ritches Bus Services

All tournament results are attached. Congratulations to our Roncalli Girls for their achievements at Mercy Cup this year:

Senor B Netball - Runners Up (McCauley Cup)

Year 10 Netball – Runners Up (Memorial Cup)

Hockey – Runners Up (Mercy Cup)

Congratulations to everyone involved. We will be back next year with Villa Maria College as hosts for 2023!
