NETBALL REPORT – Thursday 2 June


The Rustenburg Girls’ U14, U15 and U16 Netball teams played against Herschel on Thursday 2 June, where we won 3 out of 8 games. 

It was a tough day for the RGHS Netball teams taking on Herschel, as the opposition came to dominate and certainly displayed that in their skills and character. There was nothing but lessons to take away from the fixture and looking toward to improving in both skills and fitness for the second half of the season to come in Term 3. 

Notable performances include the U14A’s and B’s who had identical scores at full time. The U16B’s were the highlight of the day as they held on to a 1 point lead and ultimately sealed the victory at the end.

On Saturday 28 May Skye Micklethwaite (Grade 10) took part in SA Biathle championships while representing the Western Cape.

There was stiff competition and Skye, who had only just recovered from having Covid, managed to get a personal best. She ran 1200m, followed by a swim of 200m, followed by another 1200m run.
She managed to hold off stiff competition and finished on the podium in 3rd place. Congratulations on this excellent race.

Skye has been selected to participate at the World Biathle Championships in Machico, Madeira Island, Portugal from 26-31 Oct. Skye will be awarded her SA federation colours.

We wish Skye all the best as she prepares for this event over the coming months. Congratulations.
