GREYTOWN High Schools first team soccer played their first match of the season against Wembley College on 7 August. The final score was 0-0.

The quadrangular athletics meeting took place on 22 August at Hermannsburg this year. Once again, Domino Servite, Greytown High, Hermannsburg and Wartburg competed for the trophy. 
Despite coming second by a narrow margin, Greytown still had a very successful day in the field. We won four out of the six relays and sprinter Thandazile Nxumalo broke the girls’ U16 200m record.

Greytown’s girls came first with the boys ending second to Domino Servite. Age group victor and victrix ludorums won by Greytown were Khaya Nduli (boys U14), Akhona Mathonsi (girls U16), Siyabulela Xulu (boys U16).

The annual co-ed athletics meeting took place at Treverton College on 26 August. 
Participating schools were Greytown High, Hermannsburg, Treverton, Voortrekker and Wartburg. 
Fantastic talent was showcased throughout the day, despite icy cold weather. Stand-out performances by two athletes ensured the breaking of only two records for the day -Siyabulela Xulu - boys’ U16 Triple Jam and Andiswa Zama - girls’ U14 shot put. Well done to these two athletes. 
The last co-ed record broken by a Greytown athlete was in 2010, indicating the standard of the competition in this meeting. Dedicated teamwork ensured that Greytown won four of the six relays and emerged the winners of the meeting for the second consecutive year.
