Competitive cricket among girls at KZN schools on the increase

2012-11-13 00:00

GIRL’S cricket is becoming more popular and there are some girls playing fairly regularly for their schools. Others are involved in cricket for clubs in both the coastal and inland zones of KwaZulu-Natal.

In contrast to boy’s cricket, the girls are more active in northern KZN as they fill nine of the 13 places in the Girl’s U19 Inland team. Ferrum High School from Newcastle dominates the selection with five players. In the coastal region the girls come from a greater number of schools and only Felixton College and Kloof High School each have two players selected, with one player from each of the other 11 schools.

The National Girl’s U19 week is being hosted by the SWD Union and will be played in Oudtshoorn from December 15 to 19.

KZN Inland: Elonja Behrens (Voortrekker HS), Natasha Botha (St Dominics Academy), Tanja Cronje (Ferrum HS), Priya Govender (Newcastle HS), Brittany Gow (Epworth), Arishna Maghoo (Ladysmith HS), Alana Marais (Carter), Pretty Molefe (Willowfountain Sec), Aqeela Moola (LHS), Stella Nortier (FHS), Amerijie Pawunkumar (FHS), Chantelle Smit (FHS), Chene Steenkamp (FHS), Coach Marlene Steenkamp (KZN ICU), Asst Coach Bianca Sakoor (KZNICU), Manager Elodie Pienaar (KZNICU)

KZN Coastal: Hanna Bevis (Felixton), Caitlin Downes (St Marys DSG), Asheta Mahabeer (George Campbell), Kamesha Moodley (Kloof HS), Prasanthi Nayager (Arena Park), Langelihle Nhlebela (Thandolwesizwe HS), Chandre Pather (KHS), Brittany Payne (Northlands GHS), Emma Pennefather (Grantleigh), Semone Prinsloo (Ftn), Jordan Ristow (Port Shepstone), Nomzamo Shabane (Kwasanti Sec), Joanne van der Veen (Hillcrest HS), Coach Horatius Sokhanyile (KZN), Manager Charmaine Premlall (KZN)

From the boys’ team lists that were submitted, Robbie Coutts from St Charles was named as the KZN Inland U15 coach but it is apparently Darren Mortimer from Howick.
