Nearly 200 Northcross athletes headed to Tauranga last week for the annual AIMS Games, ready to give their all against the best the country could offer. It was an amazingly successful week for all our athletes as they showed outstanding determination and commitment, playing their hearts out in the hope that they could secure a win and be one step closer to achieving the ultimate goal - the title “NZ Champions”. The skill, agility, stamina and talent shown by all, was incredibly impressive and while there were some nerve wracking, and at times heartbreaking moments, our students showed outstanding character and resilience, making NX very, very proud. The NX team also displayed incredible sportsmanship throughout the week, supporting not only each other but other schools as well - they were all excellent ambassadors for NX.
This year we achieved, overall, the best results in our 14 years of attending AIMS - with all 10 of our Team Codes finishing in the top 8 of their respective competition. This in itself is a massive achievement. Below are our podium finishes for our Team Codes:
Football Boys - 1st place - Gold medalists
Hockey Boys - 2nd place overall - Silver medalists
Netball - 3rd place overall - Bronze medalists
Basketball Girls - 3rd place overall - Bronze medalists
