SWIMMERS from Hermannsburg School participated in the Howick Relay Gala and acquitted themselves well recently. This week, they will be competing in the Quadrangular Gala in Wartburg, while the Primary School swimming team competes in the Umvoti Gala in New Hanover. Three athletes from the school Luka Poser, Uphile Mchunu and Jonathan Königkrämer travelled to Durban to participate in the KZN League 5 last Saturday. Their coach Wandile Mbatha said: “What made me proud is that they maintained their pace both laps and even fought harder on the home straight.” In the meantime, training and practices are gathering pace for the Sport Olympiad in Johannesburg, which will see a number of high school pupils taking to the field in athletics, swimming, soccer, hand-ball, volleyball and basketball, against six German schools from southern and northern Africa. Excitement is building for this biennial event. — Supplied.
