RAIN, blessed rain! We are thankful for the good rains that we have had over the past week — we have certainly needed them!

It did mean, however, that the Quadrangular Swimming Gala ended up being cancelled, much to our dismay.

However, the Umvoti Gala was able to go ahead (it almost seemed as if the weather cleared just for that to happen) and we were able to welcome New Hanover, Wembley and Wartburg to our pool.

Four records tumbled on the day and one was equalled. In the end, New Hanover gathered the most points, followed by Wembley and Wartburg. Victor Ludorum was Gerhard van Greuning (Wartburg) and Victrix Ludorum was Cora Barnard (New Hanover). Well done to all the swimmers.

Our 1st XI played Grace College on Saturday, fielding first. Grace College made 163 for four (Luke Hayward three for 18). Hermannsburg replied with 69 all out (Sven Klar 26) to lose by 94 runs. The U15 team made 64 for eight and Grace College passed that with the loss of two wickets.

Congratulations go to Awande Mbuli, who made the girls’ U15 Midlands tennis team. We are looking forward to the Mini-Olympiade of the German primary schools in KZN, which will take place on Friday and Saturday in Hermannsburg. Once again the Grade 11s will be assisting with the organisation as part of their Life Orientation curriculum.
