Year 11 Nga Tawa student, Georgina Bryant and Year 10 student, Tori Bendall enjoyed success at the Tineli National Schools Triathlon Championships held in Nelson on 18 – 20 March.
Both girls competed in the Suzuki Individual Triathlon Under 16 Triathlon with Tori placing 5th and Georgina placing 15th. Tori then went on to compete in the Nelson Bays Suzuki Individual Under 16 Aquathon, placing third in New Zealand. A fantastic achievement.
Georgina and Tori then teamed up with two boys from Palmerston North Boys High School to compete in the U19 Sujon Team Tag race. In a fantastic effort competing against much older athletes, they crossed the line in second place to return home with a silver medal.
