DOU­BLE MEDAL­LIST: Toko­roa High School stu­dent Dionne Tread­away com­peted at this year’s New Zealand sec­ondary school cham­pi­onships in Dunedin.

Dionne con­tested the ju­nior girls 100 me­tres and 200m, each hav­ing a heat, semi­fi­nal and fi­nal. Dionne took a bronze medal in the 100m with a time of 12.46sec in a dead heat with the sec­ond-placed run­ner with the same time. In the 200m Dionne claimed the sil­ver in an im­pres­sive time of 25.36sec. Both fi­nals were per­sonal bests. Coach Chris Wil­liams said Dionne showed the true tenac­ity that was in­her­ent in all who come from Toko­roa. Dionne’s re­sults earned the at­ten­tion of the na­tional se­lec­tors who made Dionne part of the 30-strong team for the Syd­ney Youth Olympics in Jan­uary.
