OUR mini-hockey teams participated in a tournament at Wembley College on Tuesday 28 April. Being their first matches for the season, our girls played with vigour and spirit.

Our Grade 1 team played three matches. They lost two and won one. The Grade 2 team also played three matches. They won one and lost two.

U9 and U11 hockey teams travelled to Hermannsburg on Monday, 4 May and had a lovely afternoon. Although the U9’s lost their game 5-1 they played well and gained great experience.

The U11’s had a very exciting game losing narrowly by 3-2. They played well and put into practice all they had learnt.

An U9-U10 combined team travelled to New Hanover on the 5 May to play a match. The girls lost 2-1. They learnt a lot during the game and special mention must be made of Bianca Vermaak who defended the goals beautifully.

The U11 team played well and showed tons of enthusiasm. They drew 1-1 with New Hanover Prep.

On 5 May the U13 hockey girls travelled to New Hanover to participate in a match. The girls played very well and learnt a lot. Unfortunately the girls lost 4-0.

On Wednesday 6 May, our Grade 1 and Grade 2 mini-rugby boys travelled to Pietermaritzburg to participate in a mini rugby tournament.

The Grade 1 boys played a total of two games, the first against Athlone which they lost 15-5. Their second game they played against St Charles and played extremely well winning 35-20.

The Grade 2 boys were off to a great start, playing first against St Charles and winning 5-0. Their second game was against Lynford which proved to be stronger opponents. Lynford won 15- 0
