Exceptional performance from Dundee High school at KZN SASA championship
On Thursday, 23 February, the 8 excited learners that form part of the Umzinyathi athletics team, left for the KZN SASA championships held at Kings Park stadium in Durban. The championships showed a high calliber of competition over the 2 days.
Sommer vroeg op die eerste dag is daar bewys dat Dundee Hoër se atlete kan kers vashou by die beste in Kwazulu-Natal, met Jan-Frederik van Zyl wat dadelik ‘n kwalifiserende afstand vir die Suid-Afrikaanse kampioenskappe gegooi het. Ons naellopers het ook hulle staal bewys deur deur te dring na die finaal van die 100m en 200m items. Ons verspringers het ook bewys dat hulle vir niemand hoef terug te staan nie.
At the end of the championships Dundee High School walked away with 10 medals which included 5 gold, 3 silver and 2 bronze medals. Hoërskool Dundee wil net sê hulle is baie trots op hulle atlete se prestasies en ons wil ook net dankie sê aan almal wat die atlete bygestaan het in hierdie tyd, veral die Van Zyl familie. We believe that Dundee High’s athletics is going to go from strength to strength. We end the season with a call to arms from the athletes to all the other winter sporting codes “BLACK AND RED, BLACK AND RED. WE WILL FIGHT UNTIL WE’RE DEAD”.
Spartans make semi finals once again
On Friday, 24 February, the Dundee High first girls hockey team left for Pongola to take part in the 7th annual Spar Tournament. Pongola once again were fantastic hosts with entertainment and team building planned for the evening.
Early Saturday morning mist was short lived as the Pongola sun took no prisoners, with players, spectators and even umpires showing signs of dehydration in the 39 degree temperatures.
DHS played a fantastic first game against Utrecht winning 3-0, with Nadia Raffenberg (2 beautiful goals) and Jongi Lembethe popping the ball past the keeper. St Dominic's was a more challenging game, but Gabby Carter insured a win with a fantastic goal in a penalty corner in the dying seconds of the game.
At midday, in sweltering heat, we took on the hosts Pongola. Pongola, being conditioned to the weather, were definitely more resistant to the high temperatures and rampant humidity and scored an early goal. The Spartans dug deep and Nontu Khuzwayo scored a beautiful goal with a break away run from the half way line. The match ended in a draw. Leaving DHS top of the pool to take on Pionier.
The first half of the semi final game showed The Spartans playing their best hockey all tournament, however, by the second half, the legs just couldn't hold the incredibly disciplined, structurally sound and fit Pionier outfit.
Congratulations to Que Mdletshe, the 1st Boys' Hockey coach who accompanied the girls, and was awarded the Most Promising Umpire. He will be umpiring the regional finals in July.
Many thanks to Mr Lippke for driving the girls and to Spar for allowing us the opportunity to play the sport we love.
Zorba goes head to head with Landbou Hendrik Potgieter
On 18 February our 1st rugby boys took to the field for the first time this season, at Sarel Cilliers’ annual Rugby Day.
The game was very physical, with both teams showing impressive skill and determination. Cebelihle Kubheka, Koos Mdladla and Dylan Maré scored beautiful tries and our boys played their hearts out. Unfortunately the game ended in a 19 all draw.
Well done boys and we look forward to a positive season ahead!
