The rugby at Ficksburg High School was once again a force to be reckoned with. During the 2019 season, our teams performed extremely well. Apart from these teams reaching new heights, our individual players also stood out and excelled.
Ons is besonders trots op die onderstaande leerders:
Griffons Platteland-spanne: O/14 – Khotso Potloane en Thabo Mafane, O/16 – MJ de Winnaar, 0/18 – Teboho Mathibe, Mathew Turner, AJ Botha, Paul Oke en Imraan Alam.
Mathew Turner was chosen for an invitational team that will be playing in France during November 2019.
Paul Oke and AJ Botha were both selected for the 7’s team which will be playing in Mauritius during September 2019.
Oos-Vrystaat spanne: O/16 – Itumeleng Moya, Mokwena Tlali, Junior Mabesele, Romeo Vries, Lesedi van Rooyen. O/19 – Thapelo du Preez, Oliver Read, Juan-drè Serfontein en Carl Naude.
Tydens die VKB-rugbyweek te Reitz word Thapelo du Preez aangewys as die beste agtste man tydens die week en word hy ook genooi om die VKB-span tydens ‘n rugbyweek in Ierland te verteenwoordig.
Ons O/15-span speel in die finaal teen SEnekal en tree met ‘n eind-telling van 12-5 as oorwinnaars uit die stryd. In die Griffons Platteland-liga semi-finaal wen hierdie span teen Hoërskool Kroonstad, maar verloor ongelukkig in die finaal teen Hoërskool Bothaville. Hierdie span speel ook verder in die Ritsem-afdeling van die Kovise-liga. In ‘n taai stryd teen St. Andrews moes die seuns ongelukkig die knie buig.
Our first team won all of their matches during the Eastern Free State league. In the final, they beat Reitz convincingly by a score of 36-3. The team played against High School Kroonstad int he semi-final of the Griffons Platteland league but unfortunately lost.
A big thank you to all the players who worked extremely hard throughout the season and who were a credit to our school.
