DHS athletes storming up the athletics track
Op Donderdag, 25 Januarie 2018, het Dundee Hoërskool die atletiekveld betree vir die jaarlikse Interhuis kompetisie. Na ‘n goeie reënbui die vorige aand, het die dag koel en kalm begin, maar nes die aksie op die baan en veld, het die weer ook vinnig gedraai en het dit ‘n heerlike dag geword.
Athletes from the Sharks and Dolphins houses competed against each other in a number of events, including both track and field. The highlight of the morning was of course the 100 m races for all the age groups. Some tight heats were seen and some brilliant times ran. Some stand out performances were those of Asanda Thungo (100 m and 200 m sprint winner) and Jan-Frederik van Zyl and Siphesihle Sikhakhane, who were involved in a tight battle over the 100 and 200 metre sprints. The times that were posted were very close to ASA qualifying times. Jan-Frederik also came close to beating the school’s 400 m track record.
Op die veld het dit net so goed gegaan, met verskeie atlete wat by die verskillende velditems uitgeblink het. Tellings van hoër as 650 is op gereëlde intervalle aangeteken en atlete het definitief seker gemaak hulle gee hulle beste. By die seuns o/17 gewigstoot het Jan-Frederik weer naam gemaak. Hy het die lankstaande rekord van 13,40 m met ‘n bomenslike poging verbeter na 14,00 m toe.
Dundee High School really wants to thank all of the learners who participated at the Interhouse and for all the time and effort that coaches will be putting in over the next few weeks, with an eye on the upcoming Endumeni and Umzinyathi athletics meets. And let’s make this athletics season where “Black and Red, Black and Red” will be on everyone’s lips.
