TONVER once again emerged as the most powerful school sports council when the Friendship Games was held in Chatsworth on Saturday.

Five bus loads of eager pupils (athletes) made the trip to participate in friendly rivalry in sports. Their expectations were met when they took the field and this “moment of glory” will remain with them for a long time.

Despite challenging times, the coaches and pupils delivered to ensure that Tonver “roared”.

The medal count is as follows :

Gold – U13: netball, volleyball (boys) and chess. U15: volleyball – girls and boys teams. U17: netball, volleyball (boys), chess and soccer (boys).

Silver – U11: netball, volleyball (boys), table tennis (boys) chess and soccer. U15: table tennis (girls and boys) and chess. U17: volleyball (girls).

Bronze – U11: volleyball (girls) and table tennis (girls). U13: volleyball (girls), table tennis (girls and boys) and soccer. U15: netball. U17: table tennis (girls and boys).

The chief code convenors were Trevor Pillay (volleyball), Sagie Pillay (soccer), Shamla Govender (netball), Roselyn Moonsamy (chess) and Navin Panday (table tennis).

They were thankful to the pupils, coaches and managers who made Team Tonver proud.

The gold medal count could have been doubled if only all schools rose to the occasion and fully supported these games, said one of the organisers.
