Sporting Successes from the April holidays
With the formal return to school sport, during the holidays, Maritzburg College’s teams participated in Hockey and Rugby festivals around the country, as well as in Squash, Cross Country and Golf competitions. This week sees the official start of our winter fixture season with College’s teams travelling down to Durban to play our oldest rival, DHS.
It was a very good start to the season for College’s hockey teams. Our 1st, U16A and U14A teams all took part in the inaugural KZN Schools Hockey festival from 23-25 April. Of the 15 matches played, College won 12 games, drew two and lost just the one.
