Gisborne Girls’ High School were the A-Grade girls’ winners in the Jimmy Aupouri Memorial Softball Tournament for Tairawhiti Secondary Schools at the weekend.

Gisborne Boys’ High School (1) were the A-Grade boys’ winners and GBHS (2), the B-Grade boys’ winners. Girls’ High and Boys’ High (1) were a class above the rest, and dominated all their games.

Tairawhiti Softball Association is working hard to get the game going in the northern part of the district, so association committee members were pleased to see a Matakaoa team taking part in the tournament. Matakaoa were a combination of Te Kura Kaupapa Maori o Kawakawa-mai-Tawhiti and Rerekohu College.

The winning team are, back (from left): Waipuna Barlow, Rochelle Hikawai, Ann Marie Heston, Paisley Maynard–Day, Alex Smith-Tuhou, Teylla Joseph and Trish Hina (coach). Front: Jessie Collier, Paradise Taylor and Kataraina Monika. Lying on ground: Parehuia Teira. Picture supplied.
