The South Island Secondary Schools Championships took place in Dunedin last weekend.

The Otago Boys' Team of 15 athletes came away with 10 first, 6 second and 5 third placings.

It is difficult to single out any one person but Zion Niha who competed in the U19 High Jump achieved a personal best and was placed second.
