Hockey

Congratulations to our RGHS U14A Hockey coach, Sasha Sievertsen (pictured right) who is a member of the WP U21 team who won the SA U21 IPT this past weekend. Gold medallists – well done, Sasha!

Rustenburg competed at the PGSGU Hockey Tournament that took place at Wynberg Girls’ High School on Friday and Saturday. We had mixed results. Best of the age-groups was the U19A Team who finished second. Both the U16s and U14s finished fifth.

U19 HOCKEY MATCH REPORT

The 1st Hockey Team had an exceptional Inter-Schools tournament, remaining unbeaten throughout the morning.

We beat both Springfield and St Cyprians, against whom we had drawn our league matches, and drew to both Herschel and Wynberg, where we had lost to them in the league! We, therefore, improved on all our league results against these 4 schools.

I am unbelievably proud of how far this amazing group of players has grown and developed this year, and they have always given their best under the excellent leadership of both Courtney Wheeler (Captain) and Jacqueline Sissons (Vice-Captain)

The Scores were as follows:

  1. Beat Springfield 2-1

Goalscorers: Sharna Naidoo and Gemma Watermeyer

  1. Beat St Cyprians 1-0

Goalscorer: Jacqueline Sissons

  1. Drew Herschel 0-0
  2. Drew Wynberg 1-1

Goalscorer: Jacqueline Sissons

A very delighted 1st Hockey Team
