A fabulous summer tournament sport week!
Beautiful weather at MAADI for our rowers, 3 crews through to semi finals and Grace and Sophie are rowing in a B final on Saturday. Our volleyball girls, playing in their first ever Volleyball Nationals, just won their final game. The team ended up 7th in Division 6, great first effort! The Marsden cricket team had a convincing win over Kapiti College, setting a tough target of 126 runs to take the Premier 2 Championship (Kapiti scored 82). The team performed the best they have all season and were excited to win and achieve their goal to remain unbeaten throughout the competition. Go Marsden!
