Otago Boys High School curlers 2011

13 Oct 2011 – Otago Boys High School has successfully defended the NZ Secondary Schools Curling title it won last year.

The Dunedin side of Byron Dodge, Sam Blakely, Joe Anderson and Josh Wyber beat Long Bay College 8-3 in the Boys final at the NZ Schools Championship in Auckland this week.

As in the earlier round robin game between these teams, the scores were level after four of the eight ends but the southerners were too consistent in the final half of the game.

3 Sep 2009 – Excellent curling, outstanding sportsmanship and unbelievable tension were all present during the conclusion of the 2009 North Island Secondary Schools Curling Championships at Paradice Avondale today.

Remarkably, all three finals – Mixed, Girls and Boys – were decided by a draw to the button after each was tied when the clock ran out.

And in each game a repeat draw was necessary as nerves struck, and all stones were outside the house after the first draw from each side.
