AFTER proving their dominance at home, the Luthayi team from Pinetown District Schools Netball League got the chance to travel to Singapore to represent South Africa at the 10th International Netball Challenge, which took place from November 24 to November 30.

Pinetown District Schools Netball secretary Kwanele Mhlakwane said that the U15 Luthayi netball team had to play against every school in the city that was participating in the netball challenge, managing to beat them all to move on to represent the province and then the country.

“After they had won all the games against the schools, they then had to represent KwaZulu-Natal, which required them to play against all 11 districts, and they won again. They then went to Nationals, playing against all the nine provinces in South Africa, and again they won — which ultimately made them the team to go to Singapore to represent the country,” he explained. He further said that the team has been doing really well ever since it got to Singapore and they are hoping that they continue doing so.

“The team has been winning one game after another and we are hoping for them to bring the trophy back home. However, even if they don’t, we are just excited that they were able to represent the country in a very good way,” he concluded.
