The Rooicats travelled through to Cape Town last week to participate in a sports tournament being held by Groote Schuur High School in Newlands. We had players from Thembeletu High School, George High School, Parkdene High School and Pacalsdorp High School.
The girls were part of an U17 netball tournament being held at Groote Schuur High School in Newlands, Cape Town, which was sponsored by Absa Barclays Bank. They played matches against the host school, Groote Schuur, Dural Islam High School and St Cyprians High School before meeting Camps Bay High School in the final on Saturday.
The girls played exceptionally well, and fought hard to come out as the overall winners of the tournament by the end of Saturday. Special mention also must go to one of our defenders Ano Jafta who was named ‘Defender of the tournament’ and received recognition from the organisers.
The girls had time to take in the sights of Cape Town and went along to support Ajax Cape Town (who had their pre season training camp in George hosted by Sports Academy) at their semi-final Nedbank Cup soccer match at Athlone.
Well done ladies, and we look forward to returning next year to the tournament to try and maintain our title!
