Student practices on cue


Waitaki Boys’ High School student Healey White is all set for the World Under-21 Snooker Championships in Beijing.

The 17-year-old is now training up to six hours a day and is ready to pit his skills against his age group’s finest.

“I’m confident and excited, I just can’t wait to get there and give it my all,” he said.

White will return on July 21 to compete in the New Zealand Men’s Snooker Championships in Auckland.Sports ShoesNike
