Westering co-ed sports fest kicks off

Alvin Reeves

WESTERING High will be a hive of school sporting action when they host their Co-Ed Festival this weekend.

A total of 16 schools from Cape Town, East London, Port Alfred and Kirkwood will compete against each other over three disciplines – rugby, hockey and netball.

The biennial festival is in its 16th year and has been well supported during this time.

Westering High director of sport Stephen Harris is confident this year’s edition will prove as popular, if not more, than in previous years.

“Westering is very excited about the eighth staging of our festival. It’s become a highlight on the sporting calendar of the schools that take part,” Harris said yesterday.

“As always, we hand-picked the schools taking part this year so there should be some keen competition between the teams in all three sporting codes.”

The rugby fixtures will be played tomorrow and Monday. The hockey and netball matches are scheduled for tomorrow, Sunday and Monday.

The fixtures for tomorrow are:
