𝘞𝘦𝘭𝘭 𝘥𝘰𝘯𝘦, 𝘨𝘪𝘳𝘭𝘴!
In between visits to the ER, while playing incredibly strong teams, our very young and inexperienced 𝘂/𝟭𝟲𝗔 𝗛𝗢𝗖𝗞𝗘𝗬 𝗧𝗘𝗔𝗠 represented the school very well during this past weekend’s u/16 𝙃𝙤𝙘𝙠𝙚𝙮 𝙁𝙚𝙨𝙩𝙞𝙫𝙖𝙡 𝙖𝙩 𝙋𝙚𝙖𝙧𝙨𝙤𝙣 𝙃𝙞𝙜𝙝 𝙎𝙘𝙝𝙤𝙤𝙡 in Gqeberha.
The school is exceptionally proud of this group of girls, who, while facing teams such as DSG, Kingswood, Queenstown Girls’ High School and Pearson, left it all on the field, exhausting all possible efforts during every single match they played.
While they didn’t manage to record a win, the girls racked up valuable match experience and walked away winners in knowing that this is the start of something great, that together they are stronger and that courage can be found deep within when every muscle is screaming and spirits are low.
