The team of Lydia Ko (Gulf Harbour), Rica Tse (North Shore), Rebekah Brownlee (Gulf Har- bour), Faye-Amy Nick- son (Peninsula), Kristin Farrell (Waitakere) and Julitta Lam (Muriwai) made up for their heart- breaking loss in last year's final to take the title from Waikato. After six round robin matches North Harbour faced Wellington in the semifinals and won 4-1. Waikato beat Auck- land in the other semis. Ko sealed victory in the final with a 20-foot birdie putt on the 16th taking her two-up over Emily Perry and put North Harbour into an unbeatable position. Coach chases glory days Rugby and reconnecting: Proud Rangitoto College old boy Slade McFarland is encouraging other former students to come forward and support their school. By FELICITY REID A watershed moment in Rangitoto College rugby history sparked an illus- trious 13-year profes- sional playing career for Slade McFarland. In 1990 the school won the North Harbour championship for the first time in 54 years and McFarland was part of it.He has fond memories of playing rugby at school and it was during his final year at college that he first represented New Zealand in the secondary schools team. It was a flow-on from there. I went to East Coast Bays straight out of school and I was playing premier rugby at 18. Then I went under- 19s, colts, the develop- ment side, Super 10 and Super rugby,'' he says. Now I want to give back what I got out of rugby.'' McFarland played more than 100 games for North Harbour and was a mainstay in the New Zealand Maori team, but he knows he isn't the only Rangitoto alumni to have gone on to great things. He keeps in touch with some Rangitoto rugby team-mates through his work as a North Harbour coach as well as in the building industry. But there are others he has lost touch with and he is spearheading a two-fold campaign to reconnect former stu- dents with their school and schoolmates, while also supporting future rugby stars. Past players and past pupils have old stories to share and connections to make.'' McFarland believes rugby has fallen off the radar in recent years at Rangitoto and he hopes an inaugural fundraising golf event on February 24 will return the sport to its glory days. I want to see age- group players succeed at their dreams because it is possible.'' Success on the rugby field for Rangitoto has been mixed of late and the school has made changes to structure and resources available to try to rectify this. The fundraising golf day is on February 24 at Pupuke Golf Club. Contact Amanda Bennett on 021-289-9935 or email bennetta@rangitoto. school.nz. to find out more. Long road for Takapuna on day two CLUB CRICKET This Saturday could be a long hard slog for Takapuna after they spent most of day one in the third round of the Hedley Howarth Trophy chasing leather, as Suburbs New Lynn went on a run-fest in posting 406-6 declared. Takapuna spinner Elliott Herd toiled bravely to capture four of the six wickets on offer (4-125). The visitors were 32-3 at stumps. First innings points are defi- nitely still up for grabs at Devonport Domain as day one ended with North Shore still requiring another 164 runs with seven wickets in hand. Papatoetoe had earlier made their way to 244. Oliver Allen led the Shore attack with 4-28 and backed that up with 32 in the home side's reply as they finished day one on 79-3. It was another day of hard toil out at Lloyd Elsmore Park as Howick Pakuranga make it past the 250-run mark. East Coast Bays spinner Brad Schmulian was the key figure for his side at the bowling crease as he grabbed a five- wicket bag and the excellent figures of 5-54. Howick had enough time to bowl a few overs, grabbing two vital Bays wickets, and perhaps tipping the scales slightly in their favour. In the minor premiership Ellerslie went on a run spree as their batsmen dined out on the Birkenhead attack as they reached 387-8 declared. Birkenhead then did what they needed to do -- negotiate the remainder of the day with- out losing a wicket, meaning first innings points could be an interesting battle on day two. Team makes a splash at nationals Undefeated: Murrays Bay Intermediate waterpolo team finished the season as winners of several major tournaments. By FELICITY REID Murrays Bay Inter- mediate School's water- polo legacy lives on. Since the inception of the New Zealand Inter- mediate Games six years ago, Murrays Bay have won every national title. This season's year 8 mixed squad kept the record intact with a 10-2 win over Tauranga team Aqunias in the final of the national tournament. With a record of 61 undefeated games this year, the team coached by Brian Landry have won every tournament they have entered. In February they won the Auckland Winter Championships, then in September it was the Intermediate Games, in October they won the Tim Sonderer tourna- ment and this month in the final tournament of the year, the North Island Championships, the intermediate team again walked away with the silverware. Team manager and director of sport at the school Kevin Anderson says he has enjoyed working with the burgeoning talent. There is an even number of boys and girls and every game each player has the same amount of game time, such is the calibre and quality of all the players,'' Anderson says. The team is Georgia Cunningham, Connor Beamish, Josh Miller, Hugo Munro, Logan Geary, Logan Hohaia, Jarvis Jensen, Sophie McLean, Jessie Meikle- john, Ana Clark, Gemma Booth and Stacey landry.
