Mikah Poonawassy (14), a Gr. 9 learner of the Kimberley Girls’ High School, has been chosen as Express Northern Cape’s Let’s Play Sports Star of the Month for April due to her sporting achievements in golf.

This year, Mikah achieved a third place overall in the Kimberley Golf Club Championship and was awarded the junior cup. She also obtained the fourth position in the girls’ division in the Nomads Rose Bowl Championship at the Royal Cape Golf Club.

Mikah achieved a first place in these three golfing events: the girls’ division of the Northern Cape Junior Open, the Free State Ladies’ Open B Division at the Bethlehem Golf Club and the girls’ division of the Magersfontein Junior Competition.

She has yet to compete in the Upington Junior Open, the South African 72-hole Competition at the Waterkloof Golf Club and the South African Junior Girls’ Competition in Orkney North West as well as a few more competitions for the rest of the year.

Mikah’s motto is: ”Achieving your goal is the spark to set another one.”
