Junior Waka Ama Team
10 March 2018

Introducing the Papamoa College Junior Waka Ama team!

Big thanks to Janine Rowling and Whaea Melis for getting the girls organised and to the Regional Competition in Te Awamutu on Saturday 10 March.

Kiani Rowling Y10, Anika Hakaria Y10, Saya Karauna Y10, Maddy Karauna Y10, Eleanor Gordon Y10, Summer Erickson Y10 and Paige Puschart Y10 made up the team.

It was a really successful day for all. They may not have come first in any race but they were always the first team to the holding bay ready to get out and race again. Massive smiles on their faces before and after each race. They were able to identify where their strengths and weaknesses were after every race and improved where necessary in the following race. They arrived a shy, timid bunch of girls and once their first race was over they were a tight crew that was soaking up the atmosphere.

Well done girls!
