AT an assembly on September 28, Grey High School Grade 12 pupil, Murray Schepers, became the tenth Grey boy to receive the prestigious honours blazer for extraordinary achievement.

Schepers has won an array of squash awards in recent years and is currently ranked second in SA Schools squash in South Africa.

His achievements include representing the South African u/16 squash team in 2015 during a tour of Malaysia and Hong Kong. Both last year and this year he won the top schools tournaments and he played for the Eastern Province u/19 squash team both years.

Schepers has been selected for the Eastern Province Men’s Jarvis Cup team over the past two years, was voted the Eastern Province men’s squash player of the year last year and received the most promising South African men’s squash player award this year.

This year, he has won awards for EP u/19 squash champion, South African Closed u/19 winner and South African u/19 schools champion.

Schepers is nationally ranked second in the u/19 SA Schools rankings. He recently captained and played for the SA u/19 team at the World u/19 Championships in New Zealand.
