During the July school holidays Palesa Lenken (Grade 10) represented South Africa in Italy as part of the U16 National Basketball team. South Africa won all their pool games and semi-finals and met the host country, Italy in the final, which South Africa won – earning Palesa a gold medal.
Well done, Palesa!
From 3 to 5 August our First Basketball Team took part in the annual Val Fowler Pietermaritzburg Basketball Tournament. We met our hosts PMB Girls' High in our opening match and succeeded in beating them 21 – 16.
PHSG managed to win other Pool games and finished 3rd.
On Sunday 5 August we played off for 5th place in the Tournament against Wykeham College and PHSG beat them 44 -21, securing 5th place overall out of 25 teams.
Well done to the team!
