Interschools Cricket
08 February 2016
On Saturday 6 February WG's cricketers took the field yet again to try and retain the interschools cricketing trophy against De Kuilen. Since its inception, WG has never lost the interschools trophy and 2016 would prove to be no exception to this trend.

The two u.19 teams were completely dominant in their performances. The u.19A2 team secured the first victory of the day after restricting their opponents to only 66, spearheaded by Ussiel Langeveldt's terrific 6/14. Anton Voigt and Byron Moffat smashed the winning runs in a mere 10 overs without WG losing a single wicket in the run chase.

The first team had a similarly comfortable victory with De Kuilen restricted to 99 runs, Ashwin Witbooi (4/22) taking the lion's share. Witbooi was amonst the runs with 28 while Curtley Deelman's 42 helped secure the victory in only the 12th over with 3 wickets down.

The juniors had a tougher time of it with the u.15's successfully defending a total of 191/9 (set up by a brace of 50s from Dylan Setera and Bruce-John Joseph). De Kuilen weren't too far off with 151 all out, but Chamber Joseph's 4/24 and Dylan Setera's 3/23 ensured they didn't reach the target.

The u.14's had the toughest battle on their hands with De Kuilen amassing a mammoth total of 186. WG's bowlers struggled to penetrate, but their batsmen managed to do the job with a few overs and wickets to spare. Everyone chipped in, but Eduard Klusmann's 45 runs was crucial in the end.

Well done to all the cricketers for another excellent interschools!
Colours Athletics
25 January 2016
The annual colours athletics was hosted at Bosvarkpark for the second year, but was split over two days. There were just too many entries to fit everything into one day.

With over 1840 entries, it's no wonder that the place was abuzz with energy throughout the competition. What is remarkable as how close the competition was. With only the 200m races and the relays to go, the red team were still leading, but by a whisker. The blue team however took the lead and cemented their position as winners with a dominant display in the relays.

It was a fantastic display by both teams with the Blue team eventually triumphing 2690 points to the Red team's 2434 points.

85 athletes achieved above 600 points on the ABSA table, 18 above 700, 3 above 800, 4 above 900 points and one remarkable performance in the discus by Francois Prinsloo was awarded above 1000 points.

We'd like to thank everyone involved in organising such a magnificent event.
