Finn Holden led the James Hargest College charge at the recent New Zealand Junior Table Tennis Championships in Auckland.
Holden, a Year 9 pupil, won bronze medals in the Under-13 Boys’ Doubles, Under-13 Mixed Doubles and the Under-15 Mixed Doubles with fellow James Hargest colleague Holly Wu.
Holden also went very close to making the semifinals of the Under 13 Boys’ singles before losing a close match to the Auckland number two in the quarter finals. Finn won 25 of his 34 matches across two age groups.
More good news came James Hargest’s way when Wu combined with Year 9 pupils Maia Cavanagh and Jordan Cruickshank to win bronze in the Under-15 Girls’ Teams event.
Also, Holly Wu has been named in the national Under 18 Girls’ squad, with Finn Holden making the Under 15 sqaud. Congratulations to both table tennisers!
