OUR pupils took an active role in the Greytown MTB Classic this past weekend, with James Waller second in the 3 km run and third in the 10 km cycle, while Amy Whittle was the first lady home in the 10 km cycle.

Unfortunately, the night ride was cancelled due to a heavy storm on the night.

A huge thank you goes to Penny Waller, who organised Hermannsburg’s participation in organising and competing in the Classic, as well as to all our pupils and the Chetty family for their hard work and dedication (not least at the bike wash, where the bikes came in fast and dirty).

We congratulate the Greytown MTB Club on another well-run and fun Classic — we are honoured to be a part of this community project.

In hockey news, our first team girls played Domino Servite and drew 0-0, and the U16 girls won 1-0 (Amy Whittle scoring for Hermannsburg).

The girls also played against Greytown High School, the first team losing 0-1 and the second team drawing 1-1 (Liteboho Mosheshe scoring); Kei Blackburn scored for the U16 team, to secure them a 1-0 win.

The U14 team won their game 2-1. The boys played a rare home game against Maritzburg College — our young first team ended their game 0-2 and the U15’s 1-2 (Mufhiwa Magoro scoring for Pmb).

In the Spar Hockey Tournament, our girls (with a number of U15 filling in for first team players) played against Greytown (0-2), Wembley (0-2), Wartburg (0-3) and Domino Servite (1-0). Congratulations to Greytown, who took the final against Wartburg.

Hermannsburg’s Grade 1 girls won three and drew one of their hockey matches in the tournament at New Hanover, against Wartburg (0-0), New Hanover (3-0), Wembley (3-1) and Epworth (1-0).

The Grade 2 girls played New Hanover (0-2), Greytown (1-1) and Epworth (2-0).

We look forward to more success on the sports fields at this year’s Schulfest, on Saturday, May 19, with 7s rugby as well as junior and senior girls’ hockey.

We are proud of Awande Mbuli and Kei Blackburn, who are playing for the U16 Umzinyathi team — Awande attended the KZN Inland team trials this past weekend.
