Upper Hutt, who were away to Collegians, at least picked up their first two competition points for the draw after only 16 overs were able to be bowled. Nick Press took two of the three Collegians wickets to fall. Upper Hutt are home on Barton Oval to Easts on Saturday. Top teams win CSW awards By COLIN WILLIAMS Outstanding efforts from St Pat's Silverstream and Heretaunga Col- lege sporting combinations saw them pick up two of the three Team of the Year'' titles at the recent College Sport Wellington awards. The St Pat's Silverstream football first XI and the Heretaunga mixed dragon boating teams took out the honours for their efforts at the regional and national level over the sporting year. Hutt Valley High School's girls' basketball team was the other team to be awarded Team of the Year, making the CSW category a Hutt Valley triple sweep. The St Pat's footballers' recog- nition follows their finishing runners-up in the sport's national tournament in Napier, the college's best ever result in the 32-team tour- nament. They beat the top seeded Mt Albert Grammar in the semifinal before being headed by Auckland's Sacred Heart in a final where Silver- stream's Junior All White Liam Hig- gins delivered an outstanding header for a goal. Also featured in the team was another Junior All White in the goal-keeper Scott Basalaj, who made two penalty saves in the semifinal. They also beat Wellington College at the quarterfinal stage, settling a score after that side had beaten Sil- verstream in the Wellington premier youth competition at the semifinal stage. Basalaj's efforts all season, with his college and with the New Zea- land under-20 and under-17 sides, also saw him recognised with an individual award. In the dragon boating Wellington regionals in March, Heretaunga College's Phoenix were powerful in taking the title and beating their long-time rivals and previous winners, Upper Hutt College, into second. The Heretaunga team then charged their way to national suc- cess with the mixed crew claiming the honours at the national Dragon Boating Regatta on the Blue Lake in Rotorua. The Heretaunga team won the mixed crew 500-metre competition, the event's premier race, before also claiming the two-kilometre race the same day. Other individual winners included other St Pat's Silverstreamers in the cricketer Henry Walsh, a New Zea- land under-19 squad member and table tennis' Thom Nguyen who was in the New Zealand juniors at the world champs and was the secondary school under-19 singles champion. Ollie Jones' success at inline skating, including winning 13 golds at the national championships and New Zealand selection saw the Hutt International Boys' School student take his sport's title. HIBS' Joel Duffy was also a win- ner on the night, taking out the all rounder title for his efforts and suc- cess at rugby union, water polo, dragon boating, cricket and athletics. Duffy is a member of New Zealand's under-17 rugby training squad and a Wellington under-18 representative. Upper Hutt College's Thomas Loftus won the Athlete with a dis- ability title after his winning the CSW 100 metre, long jump and jav- elin events and finishing first, sec- ond and third respectively in those pursuits at the North Island secondary schools competition. From the beginning Starting out: Before his parade started at its King St meeting point, All Black Cory Jane was the centre of attention for autograph hunters.
