The Junior Secondary Schools Hawks Cup Cluster competitions have been completed for the New Zealand North Island. The Hawks Cup sees Junior Secondary School teams across New Zealand compete for North and South Island honours and positions in the New Zealand Under 16 team.
The competition has been buoyed by the announcement that the Senior Secondary School competition has been sanctioned by New Zealand Secondary Schools Sports Council and will enter the sanctioned sports calendar as of March next year.

Mahurangi College were dominant in their clash against a young Orewa team to take out the Kaipara Cluster.
Orewa College had a good win against Kristen but still not enough to make them forget the drubbing they copped from the all conquering Mahurangi team.
Waitakere, Massey and Liston Colleges battled out an extremely close contest in the Waitekere Cluster with Massey taking out the final by a solitary point against a gallant Liston team.
In the Central Auckland Cluster, One Tree Hill showed great structure and rotated their bench extremely well to account for both St Pauls College and Mount Roskill Grammar.
Papatoe showed some class with the assistance of NZ Hawks Under 16 members and will be hard to beat in the final.
Onslow College backed up last year’s inaugural victory in the Wellington cluster with a strong win over Wellington High followed by a one point victory over Wellington College in the final.
Otago Boys High easily accounted for fellow newcomers John McGlashan High and Kings High to see them move into the South Island Championships final against St Bede’s College in Canterbury next week.
Last year’s Bay of Plenty Cluster winners Edgecumbe College retained the cluster title and will be hard to beat in the North Island Champs November 6th at Moire Park West Auckland.
Those competing will have the opportunity to be included in the Under 16 New Zealand Hawks team to travel to Tonga in December this year.
