Get2Go team takes out Waikato regional title

St Paul's Collegiate School —

A team of four St Paul's students who combined with four Waikato Dio students made up a Get2Go team, won the Waikato regional competition and will now go on to represent the region at the national event.

On Tuesday 14 August, five teams made up of St Paul’s and Waikato Diocesan students entered the regional qualification competition of Get-to-Go. Twenty-four teams from the Waikato region participated in mountain biking, kayaking, orienteering, problem solving and team work challenges, all with a high fitness element.

Our top team took out the competition, just pipping a strong HBHS/HGHS combined team by 18 points. Just as impressively, our ‘B’ and ‘C’ teams finished third and fourth overall also. This means, our school will represent Waikato at the national event to be held on Great Barrier Island at the beginning of December.

The winning team consisted of: Oliver Larcombe, Matthew Waddell, Dean Stewart, Sam Peoples and four Waikato Diocesan girls.

Third placed team: Logan Orsler, Dylan Fletcher, Taiki Lynn, Ben McGregor + four girls.

Fourth placed team: Ngakau Benseman, Tom Scanlon, Levi Davidson, Isaac Reay + four girls.
