Eden Worsley has just returned from the USA where she represented New Zealand on behalf of the Tauranga Synchronised Swimming Club. 11 countries were represented and Eden and former Bethlehem College Partner, Isobel Pettit, were placed 13th overall in the duet. For Eden it was also an amazing opportunity to be coached and mentored by the best coaches in the world which included previous Olympians and their coaches. She spent 5 days competing and training and was able to enjoy the sights for three days before returning back to New Zealand.

Mia Pugh is representing New Zealand in the Oceania Open water competition this week. She achieved 5th place in the Open 5km race which is a significant achievement considering there were 16 different countries being represented. She has the 10km this weekend and we wish her the very best of luck for her race.

The Girls First XI Hockey team continue on their winning way when they beat Tauranga Girls College 4- 0 last week to cement a place in the Bay of plenty schools competition final against Otumoetai College.

The Premier One Netball team also took a significant victory last week beating the top qualifying team, Matamata College, in the Division one competition. The girls used their speed and fitness to great effect throughout the game to establish and maintain their lead. Despite a third quarter comeback attempt from the Matamata girls, BC continued to display some excellent powerful and accurate passing and tight defence to hold onto their lead, and won by eight goals.
