Among the many Paraparaumu College highlights of Winter Sports Week was the 5th place which our boys’ First XI Hockey team won at the prestigious Rankin Cup, the top secondary school tournament for NZ boys’ hockey. The team defeated Hamilton Boys’ High School 1-0 to secure this placing and finished with an overall record of 7 wins and 1 loss. The team scored 19 goals and conceded 8. No team won as many games as any other team in the tournament. Their only loss was in the quarter-final to the eventual winners, Christ’s College.
