22 Wednesday February 28 2018 Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi Waikirikiri may join Canty hockey league A VOTE will be taken on whether to affiliate Waikirikiri to the Canterbury Hockey Association on Wednesday night. If the vote at the association’s annual meeting is in favour of the affiliation, Waikirikiri will be able to enter teams into the Canterbury senior competition in a staged basis over a number of years. A vote in favour would mean the year 7/8 Kwik Sticks 11-aside boys and girls, senior division three (year 9 up to under-18) boys and girls and the mid-week open men’s and women’s teams will be able to be entered this year. Waikirikiri club president Lyndal Marshall says it is an exciting development which will allow them to bring new players into the game and give them a stage on which to represent their local club. Waikirikiri Hockey was formed in 2017. Until the club’s formation, players had to travel to the city to join a club. In its first year, the club attracted 120 junior hockey players in 13 teams, of which 70 per cent were new to the game. Tight schedule for Lincoln Uni athlete • By Andrew King AFTER competing in the Canterbury track and field championships at the weekend, Lincoln University student Tegan Duffy will have little time to recover. The 17-year-old is about to head off to the New Zealand track and field and then the Australian junior championships – with all three events in the space of a month. She has also just started studying land and property management at Lincoln, works part-time at the Commodore Hotel, and trains six times a week at the ​Old Boys’ United Athletic Club. She won the under-20 long jump at the Canterbury track and field championships in Timaru with a distance of 5.64m in her fifth jump. However, Duffy didn’t compete in her other specialised event, the 100m hurdles. She is set to compete in both events at the New Zealand track and field championships from March 9-11 in Hamilton before flying to Sydney on March 12 for the Australian junior athletics championships from March 14- 18. “So basically I have to get back, repack and head off again,” she said. Tegan said she started athletics as a hobby but now has aspirations for bigger things. “I am looking ahead to the junior worlds and what I need to do to qualify for that,” she said. She has to pay her own way to attend the championships, and said it would cost about $2000 to attend the Hamilton and Sydney events. “I have gone to the local community board to ask for funding and my nana Faye Kerr has helped me fundraise with my mum, Toni, and we have held some quiz nights. Also, nana has a few friends that have chipped in,” she said. For the past month, Tegan has been training harder than usual and has been pushing herself to see what her body can endure. “There has been a lot of harder running and pushing myself as hard as possible. The weights are heavier, all of that,” she said. ATHLETE: Tegan Duffy, seen here competing at last year’s New Zealand track and field championships, will be back at the same event next month looking for success in the long jump and 100m hurdles.
