Athletics - 4th Term 2016

A round-up of news of our athletes for the term ...

This season’s athletics kicked off with the Strand High School relay meeting on 23 September.  As the name suggests, it was a meeting consisting of various relays.  We performed very well at this meeting.  The highlight for the girls was when we combined with Paul Roos for the final event – the mass relay – and finished second.

On Friday, 4 November, we had our new Inter Schools meeting – called the 3G Meeting.  We hosted St. Cyprians and Wynberg Girls’ High School at Coetzenburg.  The girls were very excited about the meeting and a group of cheering supporters motivated them to do their best.

The final results were as follows:

RGHS -        89
SCS    -        86
WG     -        46

RGHS -        91
SCS    -        80
WG     -        51

RGHS -        87
SCS    -        66
WG     -        67

RGHS -        267
SCS    -        232
WG     -        164

Andrea Cornelissen won the medal for the best /14 track and field athlete.  Jazz Mallam won the medal for the best /15 field athlete and Amber Abrahams won the medal for the best /17 field athlete.

Hopefully this is going to become an annual event.  We look forward to going to Green Point Stadium next year.

There will be no Inter House meeting next year as Coetzenburg is not available for the whole of 2017.  Markotter is also not available.  Trials for the 4M team will be held during the second week of the new school year so girls need to follow training programmes and stay fit.
