JPIn the absence of our expert coach, Mr Combrink, our first team struggled to maintain last season’s performance. We lost all four of our matches, although at least one was very closely contested.

However, the excellent potential of the up-and-coming junior team raises our expectations for next season. The future is bright!

Senior cricket team

ServingThe highlight of the season was of course, our new A team look! A new uniform adds a degree of confidence and pride to a team and it certainly did that to the A team. We played two matches this season.

Our players participated in the KZNCSSA Winter Sports held in Estcourt and Richards Bay. Two players received KZN colours for their performances: Snenhlanhla Mkhwanazi u15 and Seneli Buthelezi u15.

Gabriel KhwelaAll the soccer teams had a busy season and played a total of 13 matches against local schools, however, four defeats for the 1st team and one defeat and 2nd draws for the 2 team did not make for a very successful soccer season. In addition, two top players, Mondli Sibisi and Nkosinathi Majola were injured.

The Under 15 team was the most successful team having won all the matches that they played.

Netball match

One of the most fulfilling things in life is to have an opportunity to unleash God-given talents and discover your potential. Playing netball this year was not only hard training with much perspiration, but many girls found it a lot of fun.

We are grateful to our teachers and new coach who supported us and invested their time in our fitness. Of all the schools we played against, Greytown High gave us a taste of their medicine when the u19 team lost 23-7. The highlight of the season was the KZNCSSA Winter Sports competitions where we excelled. Congratulations to Senziwe Kunene u19 , Dorcas Maphanga u19, Nomusa Maphanga u19, Thato Mosebi u19 and Tlholo Mosebi who achieved KZNCSSA colours.

After such a great season, should netball not become an all season sport?

During the first term the Junior Cricket team played three matches. The first game, against the well-known Wembley College, was an outstanding match with a nail-biting finish. Wembley opened with a total of just over 100. Domino Servite chased the total and in the end lost by only 7 runs. It was the first time that the Junior team scored over 100 runs in a match. The high score can be attributed to good bowling and batting performances. The young cricketers were ecstatic and in very good spirits all the way home.

In the second match against Hermannsburg, the batting performances were not as good and we drew the match with a total of 41 runs. Needless to say, this match also provided great excitement with a finish that could have gone either way. In the last match the Junior team played against the teachers and a few elected players. Although they lost, we all had great fun. The learners cheered their players, as well as the teachers who were playing. We have a number of promising cricketers among the junior boys and we are looking forward to watching their progress in the coming seasons.

Junior hockey girslJunior Hockey started the season with a very energetic and enthusiastic bunch of little girls. Basic hockey skills were learnt and hockey practices were most enjoyable. A number of players attended the KZNCSSA hockey trials held in Estcourt. Cornelia Heckel, Nomthandazo Ngema and Andrea Stegen were selected to play for the Northern Natal team. Cornelia and Andrea both obtained KZN colours.

U11A & B Combined
vs Gert Maritz drew 2-2
vs Greytown won 3-2

On the runIn March we were invited to a hockey festival hosted by Wartburg Kirchdorf School where we played four matches of which we won three and lost one. This was a great start to the 2007 hockey season.

In April, the boys’ and girls’ teams were invited to a friendly match at Wartburg. The girls drew 3-3 but the boys unfortunately lost 0-3. The month of May saw a number of highs and lows. Early in the month the 1 team displayed good hockey skills when they played on home ground against Stanger High and beat them 3-0. Two later matches played in Pietermaritzburg were sound victories for the girls, however, 29 May will be remembered as a day of defeat when we were beaten by Hermannsburg Deutsche Schule 5-0! The season ended with a match on ASTRO against Maritzburg Christian School which we lost 2-1. (During the season, the 1st team was often supplemented by 2nd team players.)

Hockey boys on defenceThe 2007 players exceeded all expectations. Having lost many of our star senior players from 2006, new talent had to be developed, setting the scene for adversity. But some courageous performances proved the opposite. Although we started the season with two losses, one against Stanger High and another against a traditionally strong Wartburg Kirchdof, we fought back with two draws, of which the 3-3 score against arch rivals Hermannsburg was particularly pleasing. In the past, Hermannsburg has always outplayed us, having beaten us 5-0 in 2006 and 6-2 in 2005!
