How exciting are the following team results: A school needs 3 runners per age group to be placed as a team. RGHS won the U14 and U15 age-groups and placed 3rd in the U16 and U19 age groups. We were unplaced in the U17 age category as we only had two runners. Let’s hope we can fill this age group in the future.

Match report:

U19A vs DFM U19A

Score: 1-0

Scorer: Rebecca Hill

Player of the match: Rebecca Hill

The 1st team started the season with a well-earned 1-0 win against DF Malan. We were better in all aspects of play and held possession for long periods of time. The score does not reflect Rustenburg’s dominance. They had very few if any shots at goal and we spent most of the game in their half of the field. Rebecca Hill had a great game and was on the receiving end of a superb target ball, hit into the circle by Ashleigh Noyce, to deflect into the goal. The team is starting to settle into a constructive pattern of play and the speed of Francesca Palmieri up front helped put pressure on their defenders, giving them very little time to make good decisions on the ball. This resulted in RGHS winning ball high up in the field. A good start to the season – Coach Andi Bernstein


U19B vs DFM U19B

Score: 2-0

Scorers: Alyssa Janson and Hannah Rens.

Player of the match: Emily Malherbe

The second team opened the season with a comprehensive victory against DF Malan.

The team defended well as a unit and controlled the game from the first whistle. More work can be done on taking our chances in the attacking circle. I’m really proud of the team’s first match performance – Coach Brad Fickling



On Friday 5 May our A team beat Rondebosch Boys 11 – 5 and our B team lost to Springfield A 6 – 11. This was a great result as three of our B Team players were playing their first squash match ever.
