BOP Year 7 & 8 Rock Climbing Competition Results
Tuesday, May 14, 2019
Written by Buddy Meyer, Tamariki Regional Schools Director
This was the first year the year 7 & 8 Rock Climbing competition was held as a stand-alone event away from the Secondary Schools. With over 80 athletes attending from across the BOP region there was lots to justify the year 7 & 8’s having their own event and confirmation that Rock Climbing is a sport growing in popularity.
There were some athletes who have been involved in climbing for a while and it was great to see their skill on display. More impressive were the students still relatively new to climbing, and the energy and enthusiasm by all involved. All students and support staff were very encouraging of each other making it a great day for everyone.
Thank you to Carla and the staff at Rocktopia for their expertise and for the fantastic venue.
