Sports Department 2013
This year the sports department started the year by setting high goals for the different sporting codes. Our challenge was to supersede what we had achieved in 2013 and to raise the sporting standards. All coaches and cultural department coaches have challenged themselves to achieve greater things this year.
We kicked off the year by once again hosting our very successful Night Cricket and Netball tournament which runs for 7 Fridays and again this tournament was a great success and a lot of fun was had by all who participated. We also played our weekday league cricket matches in the first term and again our cricket teams did us proud and won more than 80 % of their matches. A lot of our boys made the Far North squad. We also had 5 or more boys per age group qualifying for the NSSSC in the U8/9/10/11 & 12.
Our senior boys' tennis player have also done us proud on the tennis court.
Our swimming team improved its performance in the pool and a lot of parents came to support our swimmers in the various galas. Miss Piater together with Zach De Beer and the swimming coaches worked tirelessly to get our swimming teams to give of their very best in the pool.
In term two we again hosted our successful Night Soccer tournament and our teams that represented Montrose in this tournament played very well and did us proud.
We also kicked off our soccer league for all the boys and girls in different age groups. There is still a lot of soccer to be played this year with the knockout challenges being one of the toughest competitions that we participate in for both boys and girls soccer players. Our netball league also kicked off in the second term and well done to our U11 and U13 netball girls for qualifying for the playoffs.
We also hosted our very successful soirée which saw hundreds come to enjoy their children's talents and well done to Mrs Spector for putting together a very successful and enjoyable music show.
We are looking forward to the 3rd term during which we are going to launch our first ever Night Hockey Tournament. The 3rd term will see a lot of boys and girls taking part in hockey and athletics. During the 3rd term, we will be playing in a hockey league against other school and will also start athletics to try and improve our athletes performance on the track.
The 4th term holds a short period of cricketing discipline to prepare the boys for the 2014 term one season and our successful Night Cricket Tournament.
2013 is turning our to be a successful, yet challenging year. A lot still needs to happen this year and we wish the different sporting codes all the best in all their matches this year and well done to all the coaches who have worked hard to prepare their teams for their various matches.
