One of our multi sport athletes Annie Timu has had great seasons in both touch rugby and netball. Starting off with her successful 2019/2020 netball season Annie placed 2nd at Otago Secondary School Netball Champs and South Island Secondary School Champs alongside her St Hilda’s Senior A netball team. Annie then went on to compete for the U17A Dunedin netball team where they placed 4th at Nationals, and was selected into the New Zealand Secondary Schools tournament team. Earlier this year Annie was selected to attend a New Zealand Secondary Schools development camp that was held in Auckland. After a stand out season Annie was fortunate to be named as as a netball liaison for her school St Hilda’s.

To top of her success in her netball season, Annie was selected into the Under 21 New Zealand trial and training camp for the 2021 Youth World Cup for touch rugby.

quote from Annie ” The Academy has shown me a different and more professional side to sport, the programme kept me driven during the Covid – 19 pandemic and the New Zealand level 4 lock-down”.
