Heaton Girls’ Qualify for Nationals 2019

Canterbury Finals 2019 – Coaches Report

This year the Canterbury finals were contested between Heaton, Craighead (Timaru), Waimea (Nelson) and STAC (Christchurch)

Game 1 : Heaton 190/2 beat Craighead 7 in 6.1 overs.

The girls were actually quite nervous coming into this game. We lost the toss and Craighead asked us to bat and they grabbed their first wicket in the second over. Emily D came in early and scored a decent 17 before being bowled. Kate C opened the batting and along with Lexie took us through to the 15 over with about 150 on the board (Kate C 34* and Lexie Rouse 40*) – they were both retired allowing the rest of our batters a chance to impress. Lily and Ava were given 3 overs and scored 10 and 9 respectively. Eden and Kate S were given 2 overs and scored 6 and 4 . We ended the innings on 190.

Although Craighead were dismissed for a very small score, the Heaton bowling was actually outstanding and possibly the best all round bowling attack the school has ever had. Millie S took a great catch at first slip, 1 run out and 5 bowled accounted for the remaining wickets. Ava Finished with 2 overs 3 wickets /4 runs, Eden 2/1/1 and Lexie 1/2/0.

Game 2 : Heaton 143/5 beat Waimea 35 all out in 16 overs

Waimea had just finished a nail biting game with STAC losing in the last ball, we got a glimpse of their fielding and bowling and they looked very useful. We won the toss and batted first. Kate C batted through the innings unbeaten on 38*. She was supported by Lexie with an aggressive 28, Lily 13, Ava 17 and an impressive quick-fire 11* by Millie S.

Our goals were a run out and 2 catches as well as bowling great lines. Ava continued her fine form collecting 4/3/5 including a great catch by Emily at Silly Mid On. Captain Lucy bowled well with 3/1/3  but combined beautifully with Lexie for 2 well executed run outs. Eden and Millie each got a wicket.

Game 3 : Heaton 126/5 beat StAC 44 all out in 13.1 overs

A perfect morning and both teams undefeated, crunch time with the victor going on to represent Canterbury in the nationals.

The toss was won by captain Lucy who opted to bat first. We got off to a cautious start wanting to ensure that our openers did their job when really needed. Kate (13) and Lucy (37) did just that. Lexie came in with a quick fire 27 and Emily with a solid 20. Lily (9) continued her good form and Millie S again came in and continued the attack with 3 off as many balls. We were happy with the total of 126 and confident it was defendable.

Our bowling attack is the strongest I think Heaton has ever had. Ava opened the bowling and got instant success with their opener out caught (Emily) first ball. Second ball – dot, third ball LBW, 4th ball LBW and the game was as good as over with STAC’s top 3 batters back in the pavilion without a run on the board. Captain Lucy and Lexie decided to maintain the pressure and soon STAC were dismissed for 43 in 13.1 overs. Ava produced an amazing spell 3.1 overs 4 wickets for 16 runs. Her seasoned opening  bowling partner, Eden, also bowled beautifully with 3/2/3 and Lucy 3/2/3. The other pleasing thing was our fielding with 2 more run outs and no dropped catches.

A proud coach, a delighted team and a proud supportive group of parents and family.  All looking forward to attending nationals in the hope of playing some great cricket, having fun and meeting new friends. Let’s see if we are good enough for a 6th title in 8 years for Heaton Intermediate.

Aims Games Championships 2019



The 2019 Anchor AIMS Games was an event of epic proportions. There were over 11,500 competitors who were representing 365 schools from throughout New Zealand, Asia and the Pacific. These staggering participation numbers place it ahead of the number of athletes that competed in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio!

Heaton were superbly represented by two sports teams (Girls’ 11-a-side Hockey & Boys’ Basketball) and 9 individuals who competed in BMX, Squash, Cross Country, Swimming, Gym-sports, Golf and Multisport. Our Heaton athletes have worked tirelessly over the past six months to prepare for this tournament, and have been wonderfully supported by their coaches, parents, family and teachers. I would  personally like to take this opportunity to thank Miss Seales, Mrs Dore and Mrs Newton for all of their efforts, energy and expertise. Without you, this opportunity would not be possible for our athletes.

I would like to congratulate all of our students for their individual and team success. We are extremely impressed with both the personal and sporting development that occurred during your week in Tauranga. You have all made yourselves, our school and your families very proud! We are so pleased that all of your hard work, sacrifice and efforts have been rewarded.

Our Heaton Hockey Team (affectionally dubbed the frogs) have been crowned Aims Games Champions, bringing home the 11-a-side Hockey cup with a perfect 8 wins from 8 games. Lauren S (Room 8) has also added to her impressive national tournament successes with a bronze medal win ( only .3 points behind the gold medal). With other personal best performances, many top 10 finishes and amazing improvements, this years Aims Games was a spectacular success.

Being on 2020!
