Orange Overcomes Green again!

Orange grabs another victory from Green Team, winning the Cup by ‘a long shot’.

This time of the year sees Kommetjie dividing into two teams. The school colours of maroon, black and white is transformed into Green and Orange. These two fiercely competitive teams compete for the ‘Cup’ and the ‘Singing Cup’ as well as individual medals.The Teams compete for first, second and third in field and track events, but it’s the latter that brings in the points. 

The ‘Field events ‘consist of High Jump, Long Jump and Shot Put. The ‘Track Events’ are the 80m and 100m sprints, the 50m relays done by the Foundation Phase, the 4× 100m Intermediate relays and the tiring Long Distance. 

The individual cups are awarded to the top boy and girl sprinters in each age group. The u/7 (under seven) cups went to Matthew Bowes and Shaylyn Charles and the u/8 ones to Blake Bolton and Mieshkah Moses. Kieron Parris and Michaela Ing were awarded the u/9 cups while Abigail Busslo earned the u/10 girls cup. The u/10 Boys cup was shared by Daniel Schorr-Seymour and Robbie Miller. Julia Ploughman got the cup for Green and Zachary Hassenfuss the cup for Orange in the u/11 sprints. Orange Team dominated the u/12 with Megan Constant and Ryan Young winning it for their home teams. Ryan Young was also awarded the Brian Park trophy as he won the u/12 100m sprints. The Trophy was donated by Mr Brian Park in 1935. The U/13’s were also seeing orange as Michaela Pretorius and Roland Wozniak each received a  cup. 

Over all it was an exciting day and both teams gave it their all. The Green Team won the ‘Singing Cup’ but sadly for them their singing wasn’t enough to stop Orange trampling all over them in the events and winning the cup again.

Interhouse Field Events

It was a good start for both the Orange and Green teams today. The U12   boys for shot-put did well,with Shagon Charles 1st, Zane Richter 2nd  and Quin van Heerden 3rd. U13 High Jump Roland Wozniak took 1st place, Tyrone Parris 2nd then Joshua Coelan 3rd . High jump for U12 girls Tye Kettle 1st, Megan Constant 2nd,  Sarah Van Zyle 3rd place. U 12 Boys High jump was  a whopping big challange.  Uzair Slarmie knocked over the pole twice in the 2nd round but made it over with his last jump. Zane and Justin Schoon both made it over. Shadley September, Ben Ringwood and Mickylo Williams each used a scissor kick to get themselves over the pole. 

On Saturday, 17th March, the track events for the Interhouse Sports Day will be taking place. The excitement is at fever pitch
