TUHIRANGI JAB RUGBY

October 3, 2018 October 2018, Sports Comments Off on TUHIRANGI JAB RUGBY

The 2018 Tuhirangi JAB rugby season has come to an end but we have had a great year.  We had approx. 45 children registered and they played across 6 different teams ranging from Under 6 Rippa through to the Under 13’s.

This year we had our own Tuhirangi Under 6 Rippa team, but the rest of our players had to combine with other clubs to make up the numbers.  We would like to take this opportunity to thank Gladstone Rugby Club, Greytown Rugby Club and Martinborough Rugby Club for letting us combine with them to ensure all our JAB players could play in the appropriate grades. … Continue Reading

Martinborough Golf Report

October 3, 2018 October 2018, Sports Comments Off on Martinborough Golf Report

Spring sprang a leak early in September with many days being called off, and the course closing for a short time (for being underwater).  However the cold snap passed, the ground dried out and our intrepid golfers wiped down their trundlers, dried out their gloves and drove home some good results.

Grumpies winners this month have included Peter Price and Ray Matthews, hopefully Terry might give us a glimpse of their infamous ladies tee league soon.

The 9-holers have missed a couple of days due to inclement weather but made up for it on following weeks, winners have been; Gaylene Delby-Neal and Jan Fergusson. The Thurlowe 4BBB was won by Sherryl Howie & Billie Holmes.

The ladies have also had to play catch up this month; winners have been Marilyn MacKenzie and Carol Parkinson. The ladies finally beat the drought and beat Royal Wellington in the 50th playing of the Ladies Stout Tournament, Sandra Petersen had the top score – good on you Mrs Gumboot! … Continue Reading

Kahutara School Hockey Wrap Up 2018

October 3, 2018 October 2018, Sports Comments Off on Kahutara School Hockey Wrap Up 2018

Kahutara School Hockey has had some great success this season.  Three teams competed in various Wairarapa Hockey Association grades, with the Kahutara Junior Red team in the Tuesday night 6 Aside quarter field competition; the 6 Aside A team in the Friday night half field competition; and the 1st XI team in the Wairarapa Primary and Intermediate Schools B Grade competition. 

 All three teams punched above their weight, with the Red team making it to the semi-finals of their grade and the 1st XI finishing runners-up.  With an impressive 54 goals for and only 24 goals against them, the 1st XI team finished the season with 10 wins, 1 draw and only 2 losses, both to Kia Kaha, with unfortunately one of those losses being in the final.  

The group worked very well as a team all season, with some great passing and brilliant goals as a result.  

Congratulations to all the children from all three teams for making Kahutara School proud, playing fair and trying hard every game.  Special congratulations to the trophy winners in each team.  Red team MVP: Grace Jaspers; 6 Aside A team MVP: Rhiannon Clark; 1st XI MVP: Angus Jaspers, Most Improved: Rheno Andersen-Clay and Most Dedicated: Archie Clark/Guy Jaspers.  Rheno was also named in the Wairarapa Boys Curtis Cup team.        

A big thank-you to all the parents for your wonderful support over the season, and especially to those parents who coached the teams
