THE KZN Schools’ K1 River Championships were held on the Mzimkhulu River over the weekend and turned out to be a great success.

The river was at an ideal level although there was a cause for concern on Saturday night after heavy rains in the Underberg caused a flash flood.

Fortunately, the levels dropped substantially and the race continued on Sunday. Despite the trying conditions, Michaelhouse were exceptional hosts. The following results were posted:

U18 Boys

1st Louis Hattingh (Maritzburg College)

2nd Damon Stamp (Maritzburg College)

3rd Patrick Dillon (Michaelhouse)

1st Jean van der Westhuyzen (Michaelhouse)
