As a company that values success at all levels, Ricoh Southland is proud to continue its sponsorship of the ILT Southland Sports Awards.
The night celebrates the very best of Southland sport, and we were delighted to be there once again in 2016; awarding the Ricoh Southland Coach of the Year Award to a valued, respected and talented coach - Paul Henare.
Paul Henare had a huge year courtside at Southland and national levels.
He coached the SIT Zerofees Southland Sharks to win the National Basketball League title – the franchise’s second national title in just three years.
The team also recorded the competition’s longest winning streak with 16 consecutive victories.
Paul was also appointed head coach of the New Zealand Breakers and is the current Tall Blacks coach.
An outstanding year for Paul Henare.
Congratulations to Paul on behalf of the team at Ricoh Southland.
