Solway College was a finalist in two categories last night at the Wairarapa Times Age 2018 Sports Awards. These were our Senior Waka Ama team in Youth Sports Team of the Year category and the college itself in the College of the Year category.

The WTA Sports Awards are the premier awards for sports in the Wairarapa and it was great to see such a strong Solway presence. A big thank you to our students, staff, families, coaches, officials and managers and of course to Mrs Borren for your hard work in making Solway sports so strong!
