During late March, DHS sent 12 enthusiastic cricketers to participate in the Northern Natal Cricket Trials. Four boys were selected to represent Northern Natal at Hilton College, namely Colin Scott, Gert Cronjé and Jonathan Benjamin, in the under 17 division, and Nathaniel Benjamin in the under 15 division. In April, the boys went to Hilton College to undergo more trials to make up a preliminary KZN Inland team. Jonathan was chosen for the under 17 KZN Inland team and Nathaniel was later called up for the under 15 KZN Inland team. In June, Jonathan and eight other KZN Inland players were invited for a fitness camp for the under 19 KZN Inland team. He was then selected to go for the South African regional trials, at Sahara Cricket Stadium, in July. During the opening of this cricket camp, it was announced that the SA regional trials were for a team to represent the under 19 World Cup 2016, that will take place in Bangladesh. The preliminary SA Team will be announced in January 2015. Rugby
Snish Mpontshane, 17, might be the next rugby great bred by Dundee High. Snish has endured a grueling process of trials, where he has once again showed that he is a force to be reckoned with in rugby circles. Hours of dedication in the gym, and on the rugby field has brought him to this level of competition. Now Snish is reaping the fruits of his hard work.
Gedurende die KZN proewe het Mnr Etienne Fynn, die direkteur van die Sharks Akademie, 'n belangstelling in Snish getoon. Hy was baie beindruk met sy spel, en het uiteindelik vir Snish 'n beurs aangebied van R 155 000.00 per jaar, sou hy belangstel om verder aan te bly by die Akademie. Snish het besluit om hierdie gulde geleentheid met albei arms aan te gryp, en gaan sy rugbytoekoms probeer bevorder by die Sharks Akademie in 2015. Ons hoop om Snish in die nabye toekoms in die Sharks se senior span te sien.
For the 2nd consecutive year Snish has managed to play himself straight into the starting lineup of the KZN Country Districts team. On Wednesday the 2nd of July, the KZN Country Districts team, departed for Worcester from Glenwood to participate in the annual Academy Week. Snish has made Dundee High School proud and we wish Snish all of the best for his rugby future.
