PIETERMARITZBURG Girls’ High School first hockey team ended the 2017 season on a high, finishing second on the log behind St Anne’s DSG, after a tough start to the season.

Although many challenges were faced by the girls this season, at the top of the list was having to adapt to their new coach, Joel Barron after the departure of Taryn de Winnaar who coached the team for many years.

For the first time since its inception six years ago, the GHS first hockey team did not make it to the finals of the KwaZulu-Natal SPAR Hockey Tournament and finished behind St John’s DSG.

GHS participated in the annual St Mary’s DSG hockey league and gained much experience and grew as a team.

The first team played against A-league schools, including Bethlehem Voortrekker, Wartburg and King Edward High School. Of the seven matches played GHS won four (Howick, Voortrekker, Epworth and Treverton College), drew two (The Wykeham Collegiate and St John’s DSG) and only lost against St Anne’s DSG.

Although the end of the season means saying goodbye to talented players including captain Nandi Ngubane, vice-captain Jacquie Minnaar, Noki Nyathi and goalkeeper Caitlin Grant, there are a number of exciting players who will be a force to reckon with in the future.

GHS is also proud to announce that 19 hockey players have been selected to play in KZN school hockey teams;

- U14B Sarah Rolfe.

- U14A Abigail Ngoshi, Lukhanyo Nlonzi and Courtney Müller

- U16A Ahmeadyn Claasen (vice-captain), Sphume Shandu and Courtney Deysell

- U17 Zama Mhulane, Shanae Page, Amber Neil

- U18B Lulonke Methusi, Karmen Labuschagne, Gemma Cox, Jae’l McKenzie and Taliah Govender

- U18A Nolwazi Zondi, Noki Nyathi, Caitlyn Grant and Nandi Ngubane. - Supplied
