Rangi Ruru has won the title of top South Island Secondary School girls team and 2nd in the country after narrowly missing out on the national title in the final against St Cuthbert’s today.

The final score was 1-0 in the Federation Cup final played in the Hawkes Bay.

Rangi won their quarterfinal against Iona College on Thursday, 3-2 and took the semi-final against Villa Maria College with the final score 4-1.

Director of Sport at Rangi Ruru, Jo Fogarty says it’s been a demanding week for all the girls and she is very pleased with the result, acknowledging the hard work of the girls and Head coach Aaron Ford and Assistant Coach/Manager, Megan Wang.

Our success is due to quality coaching, our support team (which includes Nutrition, Strength and Conditioning, and Mental Performance coaching), and of course our hardworking, motivated and talented students. Many are studying for exams at the moment too. Our programmes and environment support our girls to attain the success they, and we as a school, achieve,” she says.
