KEHS let hockey balls fly at Girls High

On Friday, May 5, the King Edward High S U16 and first girls hockey teams travelled to Pietermaritzburg to play against Girls’ High School. Girls’ High School had the better teams on the day and won the U16 (5-0) and first team (1-0) matches. However, the KEHS U16’s especially enjoyed the opportunity to play on astro and learnt a lot from both Girls High and watching the KEHS first team play. The first team game was a close encounter and excellent hockey was played.
