2017 Hutt Zone Secondary Schools Athletics Meeting (Brabin and Campbell Shields) Newtown Park Fri 10 Mar
The Hutt Valley Zone Track and Field day at Newtown Park has
two trophies up for grabs, the Brabin Shield (Boys) and the Campbell Shield (Girls).
I have never heard of these two trophies but apparently
the competition between the schools has been going for 60 years, although the trophies may have only been on the table since 2004. If you Google
for the Brabin Shield what comes up is a small amount of information about an
old cricket trophy.
Compared to the McEvedy there is little in the way of media
coverage either before or after which is a pity.
The schools involved are a mix of co-ed and single sex
schools and for each of the boys and girls competitions there are 8 schools. This year the winners of the Brabin Shield
were HIBS and for the Campbell Shield the winning school was HVHS.
