Last week brought the end to a very successful EGGS Lacrosse season. The Premier and B teams placed 1st at the Division 1 and 2
Champs with both teams playing MAGS in the fnals.

Over the weekend the EGGS Prems competed in the New Zealand Secondary Schools Nationals down in Cambridge. The team did
really well, and fought through some really tough pool games. They found themselves up against MAGS again in the semi-fnal, and
again, ended on the winning side by one goal! Facing Cambridge High school in the fnal EGGS went down 7-3. The girls performed
really well, fought hard, and represented the school with a lot of pride.

Table Tennis

On Thursday 18 August, our top EGGS Table Tennis team competed
at the Auckland Champions of Champions tournament. This is
an invitational tournament based on performance in the regular
competition and it was a great achievement that two of our teams
qualifed, although only one could attend. The EGGS 1 team of Ruofei EGGS 1 Table Tennis team
Rao, Christina Zhou, Lucy Lin and Jocelyn Lam then won the girls
grade, possibly for the frst time, with a dominant fnal performance
over Westlake Girls High.


Saturday August 27th saw Kohu Kawiti (13DAS), Manine Lynch
(13CHD), and Makare Tavanavanua (11PAS) competing in the Auckland
section of the New Zealand Secondary Schools Olympic Weightlifting
competition. All the girls lifted well and posted strong totals for the
day which will be ranked nationally after the Dunedin and Wellington
portions of the competition. The girls were fortunate enough that
Richie Patterson (NZ Olympic representative at Rio 2016) was on hand
for the event and got the opportunity to speak with him afterwards as
can be seen in the picture below. We look forward to seeing all three of
these girls represent New Zealand and Cook Islands in the near future! From Left to Right: Richie Patterson (NZ Olympian), Kohu Kawiti,
