Water Polo

The U16A, B, U19A and B teams played matches against Westerford @ Westerford on Friday 1 November. It was a wonderful afternoon of polo between two very evenly matched schools. The results were as follows:

  • U19B: RGHS 4 Westerford 8
  • U16B: RGHS 16 Westerford 1
  • U16A: RGHS 10 Westerford 0
  • 1st Team: RGHS 6 Westerford 6

The 1st Team match was the highlight of the afternoon, with scores level as we moved into the final chukka. Rustenburg went into the lead for the first time, then Westerford scored to equalise. Thank you to four of our matrics who returned to play for the 1st Team.

Hockey

Rustenburg Girls’ High School are thrilled to announce the appointment of a new 1st Team Hockey and Goal Keeping Coach for Outdoor Hockey in 2020.

Olu Ncukana will be joining the Rustenburg Hockey coaching team from March 2020. Olu is an accredited SAHA Level 1 Goalkeeping Coach as well as an accredited SAHA Level 2 Hockey Coach. We are excited for him to share his passion for the game, his experience and his energetic vision for Hockey at Rustenburg. Thank you to Andi Bernstein who has been the 1st Team Hockey coach for the last four years.  Andi has obtained her FIH coach educator accreditation, which requires that she travels internationally at least four times a year. With this in mind she has decided to step down from schools coaching in order to fulfil her commitments. We are fortunate that Andi will remain involved at Rustenburg once a week.
