HS 1st Team Boys' Hockey
1st Team Boys' Hockey played out of their socks this weekend at the KZN Schools Top 8 Tournament!
We were the only Co-ed School at the Tournament and had the likes of Westville in our pool who are currently ranked #1 in the country.
With at times no real bench, some boys played every minute of the tournament with every boy playing with unbelievable heart, putting their bodies on the line and throwing themselves at everything.
Our boys were spoken of highly by many opposition parents, coaches and players as our conduct was outstanding and our performances just got better and better.
It was unbelievable to watch our boys punch well above their weight against some of the top boys schools in country and they did us, as a school SO proud!
Lost 8-0 to Clifton
Lost 8-0 to Westville
Lost 2-0 to St. Charles
Lost 3-2 to Hilton College
Lost 3-2 to DHS
The boys are aware that this was just a warm-up for our
‘Big Tournament’ in Jhb next weekend and that not many schools can say they
played the likes of Westville, Hilton and Clifton as pre-season warm ups ahead
of the ‘REAL’ hockey. Well done guys.
