Rangitoto College had 14 teams travel to Mount Maunganui over Waitangi weekend to compete at the National Senior Beach Volleyball Championship. Half of our teams gained top-eight placings in their Division 1 competitions and three of the four teams won gold. These results are unprecedented.

National titles were gained in the Senior Girls for Kaia Buckley and Kiana Stevenson, and in the Senior Boys for Ryan Jefferson and Juan Carlos Quintero. Both of these teams will compete at the World Secondary School Championships held in Israel later this year. Rangitoto’s third national title goes to Alice Bell and Devyn Golaboski in Year 11 Girls. In Division 2 Senior Boys, Eric Oh and Mason Newby gained silver.

We are incredibly proud of these players as they always compete with integrity and pride, and all want to be the best they can be. They are fierce competitors, always demonstrating a superb standard of play and respectfulness to all involved. Thank you to the staff, coaches, and whānau for your continued support. You have all contributed immensely to our teams.
