Monday Sport Blast From The Past

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Trish Hina could be the greatest sportswoman you have never heard of.
A product of Naenae College, she later settled in Gisborne, where she was a social worker.
Her sporting CV includes representing New Zealand in touch, softball, rugby and rugby league.
Initially, her sporting success came in softball, playing for New Zealand and helping her club and Hutt Valley win numerous titles.
League was however her first love and in 2000 Hina was named MVP at the first women’s World Cup, where New Zealand beat Great Britain 26-4.
She was prominent in the Kiwi Ferns retaining the World Cup in 2005 and 2008.
In the 2008 defence, Hina was named MVP for a second time. In the final, New Zealand thrashed Australia 34-0, with Hina scoring two tries and kicking three conversions.
In 2010, she achieved arguably her greatest achievement by being selected to play for the Black Ferns at the World Cup.
She became the first female to win rugby and league World Cups.
Towards the end of her career, Hina was diagnosed with kidney disease and she was unable to fulfill her dream of playing Sevens at the Rio Olympics in 2016.
In 2015, she was inducted as a Hutt Valley Sports Awards legend.

Kids' Lit at Marsden

Inge Doig from Samuel Marsden Collegiate School

Kids' Lit woohoo! Marsden hosted the KidsLit Quiz last week welcoming a total of 44 teams from schools around Wellington. What a proud moment when one of our two teams was announced as 2nd place winners, one point behind Wellesley! Huge congratulations to Olive, Holly, Gloria and reserve Valerie (filling in for Bay). Our second team of Isabella, Tiantian, Abigail and Manon (Year 6) did a great job too, finishing in the middle of the pack. Thanks to Head of Libraries and Information Centre, Karen Richards for masterminding the logistics. Quiz master Wayne Mills pictured with our Kids' Lit teams.
