Women’s hockey: Two PMB schoolgirls called up for national training camp

2010-12-02 00:00

IN what is a truly remarkable vote of confidence in their talent, two Pietermaritzburg schoolgirls have been called up to the Investec South Africa women’s hockey team training camp, which takes place over the next fortnight at the University of Free State Hockey Centre in Bloemfontein.

Zimi Shange of Girls’ High School and Carter High’s Phume Mbande will be under the general guidance of the Amsterdam-based Investec South Africa head coach Giles Bonnet, as well as overseas and national coaches who have been invited by the Michaelhouse old boy.

The national camp begins on Saturday.

It leads into a five-Test series that captain Marsha Marescia’s SA team will play against 2010 world champions and the world’s top-ranked team, Argentina.
