INTER-SCHOOLS NETBALL

This event took place at  Rustenburg on Saturday 1 September under clear skies. Our Netball girls really came out tops. We won 3 of the 4 trophies on offer. We won the U14 PGSGU title, the U19 PGSGU title and all three teams contributed to RGHS winning the PGSGU Goal Trophy. All 3 age-groups’ goals added together which gave RGHS a score of 204 goals.

HOCKEY MATCH REPORT

RGHS U19A vs Herschel @ Rustenburg – Saturday 1 September 

“The RGHS 1st team played exceptionally well in their final league match of the season. They started off in a positive manner and took the game to Herschel. It took Herschel 26 minutes to score their first goal which came from a penalty corner. The girls never gave up and had a few goal-scoring opportunities stopped by the Herschel defence. Herschel stepped up a gear in the 2nd half and scored twice more by way of a field goal and another penalty corner. I am immensely proud of how well this team has performed this year and they have worked hard to deserve every great result that they have accomplished.” – Coach Andi Bernstein
