After competing at their fourth Motocross event of the year, the young Westlake Girls team of Thalia Heileson, Sophie Bockett, Madison Kennedy and Milla Glasgow who won the North Island Secondary Schools Motocross Championship in March, won silver in the overall Battle of the Schools Series which concluded in Whangarei last week. The Battle of the Secondary Schools Series travels around the North Island throughout the year and riders work together to accumulate the most points for their team across the season and in a sport typically, associated with males, the young Westlake Girls team of Year 9 and 10 students, performed exceptionally to win Silver. Tauranga Boys won Gold.
Not quite finished though, the team is now focused on the final event of the year, the New Zealand Secondary Schools Championship in Auckland on Friday 1 September. Success at this event would be a superb way for the team to finish an already stellar year.
