BRAEBURN OVERALL POSITION 2ND OUT OF 16 SCHOOLS
AN OUTSTANDING DISPLAY OF ATHLETICS
Kasarani once again provided the setting for another outstanding day of Athletics. Records and standards were once again raised in many areas and all teams that attended are thanked and appreciated for their efforts on the day. Braeburn team should once again be very proud of their overall performance. The under 19 Girls were champions for their age group again and the overall team performance was an excellent 2nd position to a well prepared Turi St Andrews.
What a rewarding week for the school. The entire cast and it's many assistants and helpers should be highly commended for three outstanding performances of "Jesus Christ Superstar" which commenced on Thursday in front of a schools audience and ended on Saturday Evening. Each performance steadily improved highlighting the casts great ability to take constructive feedback and self reflect leading to improved performance. The cast were rewarded with a fun party afterwards, which they deeply deserved.
Team Braeburn travelled gallantly and once again nervously to the high altitude Cross Country destination at Turi. Our team had worked hard both at school and in training at weekends. We were represented by four teams and had high hopes despite the tough competition coming from a total of eleven Schools.
Our team should be very proud again this year finishing overall in 2nd position to an outstanding Turi St Andrews Team. It should be stated that we were not quite full strength as a number of team players were not able to travel. Our athletic position this year looks therefore very promising as we advance towards The International Athletics Championships at Kasarani.

Both under 15 teams and under 19 teams were entered and our younger team should be very proud of their performance making the semi final and having to play the might of our older, under 19 team. The future of Netball at Braeburn is certainly bright.
The under 19s swept aside the opposition in the group matches including Hillcrest and Greensteds and finallly faced a strong Brookhouse in the final. This team, they had lost to in the final last year. The first half was a tight game and the girls led narrowly thanks to some excellent under pressure play from Kamba and Danai. As always Jane Hakim made it very difficult for the Brookhouse assaults on their D. At half time coach Ms Ogot made a risky tactical change, moving Jane Hakim from goal defense to goal shooter. Brookhouse had no answer and the final score moved to 10-4.
Well done to the girls for another legendary effort.
