Westlake Winners

Beach Volleyballers have their eyes on the prize

Congratulations to four WGHS Beach Volleyballers who have been selected for New Zealand under-age representative squads.

Named in the 2020 NZ Youth (Under-18) Commonwealth Games Beach Volleyball Squad, Year 12 student Tamara Nu’u is working hard to impress on the New Zealand development tour to Vanuatu in December.  Tamara aims to come a step closer to securing a rare spot in the New Zealand team that will compete at the Commonwealth Youth Games in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago in August 2021.

After winning the Auckland Secondary Schools Beach Volleyball Champs with Tamara earlier this year, partner Domi Menolta joins fellow WGHS students Delphi Houlding and Holly Isherwood in the New Zealand Under-17 squad.  The trio hope to tour Australia in December if international borders are open.  The squad born in 2004/2005 are being groomed to represent New Zealand at the Asian Under-19 Champs, World Under-19 Champs and then the coveted Youth Olympics in Dakar, Senegal in 2022.
