A Rodney College team grabbed third spot last month at the Northland Secondary School Boy’s badminton competition. Rodney Gold was one of 18 teams to compete, with Whangarei Boy’s High claiming first and second place. Four players made up the Rodney team (pictured above, from left) Tamara Marshall, Aiden Henare, Nicholas Sundvick and Jackson Shane. Tamara, the only girl in the competition, was allowed to play to make up numbers in the Rodney team. One other team also represented Rodney College.
