Wednesday March 7 2018 Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi BAY HARBOUR PAGE 21 Henderson, Hungerford make Rip Curl finals • By Gordon Findlater TAYLORS Mistake surfers Ava Henderson and Estella Hungerford both featured in finals at the Rip Curl GromSearch in New Plymouth. The two-day event saw New Zealand’s top young surfing talent compete with more than 100 entrants, including an Australian contingent, taking part in six age-group categories from under-12 through to under- 17s. In the under-17 girls category, Hungerford showed plenty of promise early. She scored a 9.57 to win her semi-final ahead of Gisborne’s Saffi Vette. However, Vette came up with the goods in the final to win with a score of 10.33. Hungerford’s 7.97 in the final was good enough for fourth. Christchurch’s Tegan Bishop finished second with 9.47. Henderson came agonisingly close in the under-14 girls final. Her score of 8.7 was good enough for second behind Auckland’s Alice Westerkamp who won with a ride of 8.83. Christchurch’s Myka Black also came close to trumping the North Island riders in the under-17 boys category. Black produced some great rides in the heats, quarter-finals and semifinals to qualify for the final. His score of 10.07 in the final saw him finish second behind Hamilton’s Caleb Cutmore. The winners of the under-17 boys and girls divisions qualified to represent New Zealand at the International GromSearch Final being held in May.

A group of Ferns players ran a coaching seminar with the club’s junior girls team and also mixed with the group of about 90 kids who play cricket at the club every Friday over Summer. “Having some international players come down was great for the girls,” said club president Ken Lomax. The Friday night community event is run by the club’s junior cricket captain Matthew House, with eight volunteers from the club introducing children aged from five to eight to cricket before they begin playing Saturday games. “It’s a great event. We get between 80-90 kids every week who come down with their parents to enjoy cricket,” said Lomax. Heathcote’s senior team recently won the metro A one-day competition and is currently leading the two-day competition with one-and-a-half rounds remaining. VISITORS: Kids from the Heathcote Cricket Club met members of the White Ferns on Friday night. 2018 CANTERBURY SPORTS AWARDS Without our partners, this event would not be possible. www.sportcanterbury.org.nz Proudly sponsored by www.nexiachch.co.nz
