Herschel race to best ranking

2017-08-22 06:00

Herschel Girls’ School have returned from a successful run in the annual FNB Private Wealth super 12 hockey tournament in Bloemfontein.

Coached by Cindy Brown, the team walked away as runners-up after losing to Oranje Meisieskool in the final.

The tournament, viewed as one of the toughest school hockey tournaments, pits the top 12 ranked hockey schools on SA Schools Sports’ list against each other. The rankings are determined once schools have submitted their results as they complete games during the season.

Herschel’s Chris McEwen is proud of the school’s achievement, saying this is the team’s highest ever ranking achieved after being ranked as the eighth best school team in the country just before the tournament.

Herschel actually beat the now top-ranked school Oranje in their match during the round robin stage of this tournament.

“This is the highest ranking Herschel has achieved and this meteoric rise has in no small part been made possible due to the outstanding coaching ability of Brown,” says McEwen.

Herschel’s captain, Amber Scott, was quick in also praising Brown for their success, saying in an interview after the game: “Miss Brown is an expert in analysing opposition game plans whilst creating her own plans to combat the opposition’s strengths and ultimately exploit their weaknesses. She is an outstanding coach.”

The Herschel players received their silver medals at the closing ceremony.

“Oranje were deserved winners and although Herschel were unable to match their superior speed and fitness on the day, our girls will always savour their victory over them in the pool stages … Oranje’s first loss in four years. We are also very proud of Kayla de Waal, who was announced as the joint Player of the Tournament, and Angie Welham, who was awarded Herschel’s Most Valuable Player of the Tournament,” says McEwen.
