Sports Results and more…


In term 3 RGHS will be hosting the Interschool Cross Country event. We are wanting to enter our best runners and are hoping that runners will continue to train throughout the holidays. I have written a running programme to guide runners for the three weeks (1-23 July) in order to maintain their fitness. This programme is available to any RGHS girl who is interested. A copy can be collected from the sports office from Wednesday 28 June.

Match report:


Score: 2-1

Goal Scorers: Rebecca Hill (field goal), Brittany Gouws (penalty corner)

“The 1st Team played well against St Cyprians to earn a well-deserved win. Rebecca Hill scored a great field goal after receiving a cross from the right from Jacqueline Sissons, to end the first chukka 1-0 up. We continued to put pressure on the St Cyprians defense and forced a penalty corner, from which Brittany Gouws scored with a great drag flick. In the third and fourth chukka, St Cyprians started to push forward and our defense coped well with the continued pressure. In the final chukka, St Cyprians managed to earn a penalty corner and scored through a deflection. The girls played a very good, constructive game and kept possession for long periods of time which is a great improvement from the last few matches” – Coach Andi
