Krugersdorp High School “Best of the West” Hockey Festival
Krugersdorp High School hosted the annual “Best of the West” Primary School Netball and U/14 Girls Hockey tournament on the 22nd and 23rd of February. The primary school’s netball tournament was the biggest to date with 119 schools from in and around Gauteng.
The atmosphere on the netball court was electrifying as the school had 13 netball courts abuzz with youngsters aged between 10 and 13 starting off their season at the festival. Great sportsmanship and commorade was the aim of the weekend and boy, did the girls show it all. As the netball courts were abuzz, the Astro hockey turf was just as busy with 8 of the top Johannesburg teams fighting for the title of winners of the 2019 “Best of the West” U14 Festival. Maragon Ruimsig came out victorious after showcasing great skill on the field throughout the two days of hockey.
A special mention of thank you need to go out to the organisers of the event: Ms Fiona Harrison, the director of hockey, and to Ms Elmien van Rooyen, the director of Netball. An event of this size is not possible without the support of the businesses in the area that got involved: Action Ford Krugersdorp, Breast Cancer Awareness, Century21 Westrand, SA Homeloans, VHF Sport and Vision Sport.
We look forward to the next weekend where the school will be hosting the “Best of the West” High School Netball Tournament and U/18 Girls Hockey Festival.
