Auckland Anniversary Weekend Inter – Provincials

Pt Chevalier Athletes
in Auckland Anniversary Weekend Inter – Provincials

Pt Chevalier athletes had strong representation in the
Auckland 14-17 team for the annual Inter- Provincials competition at Mt Smart
over Auckland Anniversary weekend. The athletes compete in three events each including
at least one field event in order to earn points for the team. The strength of
Pt Chevalier athletics saw six club members selected; those selected were;

  • Sprinters: Oliver Miller, Sabine O’Connor,
    Nathan Pike, Jackson Smolenski, Keenan Soa.
  • Middle Distance: Laura Watkinson.

Senior Club Captain Phil Miller was part of team management
and said that Auckland placed fourth in a very competitive field that included
teams from North Harbour and Counties. ‘Pt Chevalier athletes acquitted
themselves very well’. 

Oliver’s second placing in the 400m was the best
individual result from the Point Chevalier athletes.

Two former long-time Pt Chevalier Club athletes (who have
transitioned to senior clubs) were also in the team. Maiya Christini won the
U15 Girls 1500m and 800m and Ivanja Po’uhila was second in U15 Girls Shot and

Congratulations to all from the Pt Chevalier
