TGS wins Boys Auckland Indoor Ultimate Frisbee Tournament!
Takapuna Grammar School has just been crowned the Auckland Indoor Ultimate Frisbee Boys Champions for 2020!
The boys team consisted of Lomano Crichton, Noah Tu’isila, Aiden Kerr, Julian Ng, Matthew Boniface, Finn Barnes, Chris Williams and is coached by Evan Barnes. The team beat Westlake Boys in the semi finals with a one point win in overtime. They then went on to challenge Auckland Grammar in the final (who have won this event 4 years in a row). After scoring the first point they continued to keep a 1 point lead after the score would go back and forth ending in an 8- 6 win.
Our girls A team also did very well placing 3rd Place in Auckland and the girls B team also came 3rd in division B. The girls have a new coach this year in Tanith Carroll, who has many years of top class Ultimate Frisbee.
TGS Ultimate Frisbee is a fast growing sport at the school as students. Many students arrive not knowing much about it but learn the game through school PE classes. We are very happy to see it growing and thriving here at TGS!
