Two current and one recent Howick College netballers were recently named in the Pathway to Podium programme.
Current students Leehava Saverio and Nanise Waqaira and recent school leaver Teuila Sotutu were part of the Howick College Netball team that won their maiden NZSS netball crown in 2017. They also all played for the U19 Auckland Fiji netball Secondary (AFCN) Representative Team in 2018 and Leehava was selected again earlier this year in the team’s third place finish against the seven other countries who competed in the Internationals Secondary Schools Tournament in May.
Nanise, Lee and Teuila were named in the NZSS squad in 2018 with Nanise making the final team and she went on to make the team again this year playing a 4-game tournament against the England U19s, winning 3-1. Teuila and Nanise have played in the BEKO competition this year, with Nanise being named player of the year for the Northern Marvels. Nanise also had a training partner contract that saw her train and play some minutes for the Northern Mystics.
