2021 College Sports Awards: Against all odds

Much has been achieved this year with many outstanding sporting achievements to celebrate despite the disruption of lockdown impacting our sporting programme.

Refusing to be another casualty of lockdown, the College went ahead with a ‘hybrid’ College Sports Awards event in honour of our sporting elite, where students took the stage at Elliott Hall to receive their awards while their families supported them from afar through the live stream event.

Our sports programme is deservedly one of the most diverse and successful in New Zealand and our players, coaches and managers can be proud of the efforts they have made to maintain that competitive edge, while inspiring our students to strive for their personal bests.

Credit goes to our young sportspeople who have demonstrated true grit, resilience and perseverance this year in the face of lockdown, cancellations and changes to competition.

Top accolade, the 2021 Dux Ludorum was awarded to Natalia Rankin-Chitar. Boys’ Runner-Up to The Dux Ludorum went to Kaea Rangihaeata while Girls’ Runner-up to The Dux Ludorum was given to Sophie Spencer.  Our College Premier Tennis Teams won the Outstanding Performance of the Year Award.

A full list of our top performing athletics can be found here.

Congratulations to all our winners for your outstanding performance!
