At the recent Maadi Cup at Lake Karapiro, Cashmere High School made history by having a team compete in the blue ribbon event of the Boys U18 Eight. The team finished a very respectable fourth, making them the final qualifier for the final. In a hotly-contested race featuring the country’s elite secondary schools, Cashmere High School placed seventh, finishing just ahead of Auckland’s Sacred Heart College. This is a massive achievement and is testament to the work ethic and determination of the students.
Prior to competing in the Boys U18 Eight Final, four members of the team had won a silver medal in the Boys U17 Four Final.
