U17 athlete Shane Coetzee won the fifth gold for the discus and he also qualified for the SA Junior championships as a member of the KZN Athletics team.

The gold medals won by DHS athletes went to Eric Mongwabe for the U19 long jump, U17 shot put was won by M. Hayes, L. Mateyisi won the long jump and then David Palframan won the U17 400 metres.

Treverton won a further five silver medals and one bronze, with DHS winning four silvers and three bronze.

Treverton’s Kylee McCloughlin won three silver medals in the U17 girls 100 and 400-metre hurdles and in the triple jump.

This was a particular feather in the cap of Riaan Botha from Treverton, who works tirelessly to get athletics to a higher standard, particularly in the midlands.
