Athletics: KZN team announced

2009-09-22 00:00

FOLLOWING the athletics meeting that was held at Howick two weeks ago, a KZN Invitation Team was announced last week. They will compete at Grey College next term and at Menlo Park early in the first term of 2010.

Girls and boys in four age groups, U14, U15, U16 and U17, were selected. The girls came from 17 different schools, while the boys were selected from 16 schools. Some athletes who competed for either Fast Feet or CKS athletic clubs were also chosen.

Maritzburg College with eight athletes heads the boys’ team and Treverton with nine has the most in the girls’ side.

It is unfortunate that some athletes who were initially selected are not available, thus weakening the team
