Top Manawatū student-athletes named


BNZ Massey University Manawatū Sportswoman of the Year Sarah Goss

Rugby player Sarah Goss and taekwon-do champion Kane Baigent were named the sportswoman and man of the year at the BNZ Manawatū Blues Awards last night.

The Blues Awards, presented in association with BNZ, are presented to students in recognition of their outstanding achievements in both sport and academic studies. Previous recipients include Hamish Bond, Lisa Carrington, Simon Child and Juliette Haigh.

Ms Goss is studying towards a Bachelor of Arts in Māori Studies and is vice-captain of the New Zealand Sevens rugby team that won this year’s Women’s World Cup and the IRB Women’s World Series.

Mr Baigent (Bachelor of Sport and Exercise) made the quarterfinals at the International taekwon-do World Cup. He won three gold medals at last year’s National Championships and three gold, one silver and one bronze at this year’s event.

World champion sailor Jo Aleh (Bachelor of Business Studies) was named BNZ Massey University Distance Student Sportswoman of the Year. She won this year’s 470 World Championship and was second at the European Championship.

Softballer Jeremy Manley (Bachelor of Sport and Exercise) was named BNZ Massey University Distance Student Sportsman of the Year. Mr Manley is a member of the New Zealand Black Sox Team that won this year’s World Series Championship. He won the Kevin Herlihy Most Valuable Pitcher Award as top pitcher in the world series.

An outstanding contribution award was presented to Lorraine Emery and Russell Tillman for their work with the Massey Hockey Club.

Sports presenter Hamish McKay was master of ceremonies at this year’s event and Olympian and Massey student Sarah Cowley was guest speaker.

Ms Cowley, a Bachelor of Communication student, represented New Zealand in the heptathlon at the London Olympics in 2012 and is now competing in the high jump, as she sets her sights on a gold medal at the next Commonwealth Games. She shared her experiences as a high-performance athlete juggling academic studies.
