COLLEGIATE registered a solid 50-run win over Victoria Park in their schools girls’ cricket fixture last week.

Batting first after winning the toss, the Collegiate top-order players did well to take their total to 101. On a big field, which made it difficult to score boundaries, the Collegiate batsmen rotated the strike superbly, with Owethu Ndaza top-scoring with 41 not out and Siphosihle Mbatyoiti contributing 38 not out.

They then dismissed VP for just 51.

  • On the netball court, Collegiate are proud of Grade 9 pupil Anais Coetzee, who has received her Eastern Cape D grade certificate as a qualified umpire. She is the youngest umpire in the Eastern Cape and the first from Collegiate.
  • Collegiate swimmer Maryna Nell achieved personal best times in her three races in the Top 8 Gala, coming second in each race.
  • The Collegiate tennis team joined forces with Grey High to capture the mixed doubles tournament title in East London at the weekend. The Collegiate players were Ashleigh Garisch, Megan Reed, Shannon Gerber, Donna-Mae Russell, Nicky Butters, Danique Reynders and Brittney Karlson. Reed and Reynders were unbeaten throughout the tournament.

The Collegiate-Grey team narrowly beat the Clarendon-Selborne outfit in the final.

  • The placings for Collegiate athletes in the Eastern Cape meeting in Cradock were:

U14: Bronwyn van Wayngaard (4th 800m), Jenny du Toit (6th 800m); U15: Ashley Marx (5th 400m); Emma Reid (6th discus); U17: Courtney Preston (5th 400m), Neledi Mkhulisi (2nd 400m), Lauren Todd (1st 100m, 2nd 200m), Shannon Scholtz (1st 2000m steeplechase); U19: Patty Vongkamphu (4th long jump, 2nd high jump).
