PIETERMARITZBURG Girls’ High and St Anne’s College will battle it out with eight other girls’ first teams from around KwaZulu-Natal in the finals of the 2015 Spar KZN Regional Hockey Tournament on 25 and 26 July.

The 10 regional games were played early this year, with the finalists from each region participating in the finals and will play 29 games in order for the winner to be crowned.

The favourites are St Mary’s DSG and Durban Girls’ College that are just outside the top 10 rankings in South Africa for girls’ first teams. Not far down the list are both the Pietermaritzburg teams.

Durban Girls’ College are the defending champions, having raised the trophy in the past two years. Promising to give them a run for their money are previous winners St Mary’s DSG and St Anne’s College.

Teams that will compete in the tournament are Ferrum Hoërskool from Newcastle, Amanzimtoti High School from the Durban South Regional, Ashton International College from the Durban North Regional, defending champions Durban Girls’ College from the Durban Central Regional, Pietermaritzburg Girls’ High and St Anne’s College from the Pietermaritzburg Central and Northern Regional, St Mary’s DSG from the Highway Regional, King Edward High School from the Southern KZN Regional, Empangeni High School from the Northern KZN Regional and Wartburg Kirchdorf High School from the Inland KZN Regional.

Another vital part in this tournament is the growth of umpires. At each regional, one umpire was selected as the “most promising umpire” and they have been invited to officiate at the finals.

These umpires are from various parts of KZN with two representatives from Pietermaritzburg, Craig Warren from Treverton and Bryn Merton from Grace College.

“We look forward to a great weekend of top schoolgirl hockey. It has been truly exciting to see how this tournament has helped to grow a love for hockey in KZN. The festive atmosphere created by Spar has given school girls the opportunity to have fun playing in a competitive tournament and have seen the interest in the game increasing,” said Les Galloway, tournament director.
