PIET RETIEF HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETICS NEWS
Stefan de Beer (B U/16)(Sub-youth), Mieke van der Walt (G U/16) )(Sub-youth), and Percy Mkhwanazi (B U/20)(Junior men) represented Mpumalanga Secondary Schools at the Athletics South Africa Sub-Youth, Youth, Junior and Under 23 Championships 2016 (SA’S!). These Championships were held at the Herman Immelman Stadium in Germiston from 31 March – 2 April 2016. One of the team managers is also one of our school’s former outstanding athletes by the name of Didi Mgwenya.
All our athletes were dignified members of the team and they have worn the colours of the province with pride.
We want to congratulate Mieke on her bronze medal in the High jump! Mieke has jumped her personal best and came third with her 1.60m. Mieke has also done us proud by participating in a medley relay event. Excellent performance Mieke!
Stefan has also done very well in the Discus and came fourth with 54.52m. Percy came fourth in his trails but unfortunately he didn’t qualify for the finals.
We are very proud of all our athletes!
The hard work, devotion and time spent on the track have definitely paid off.
A SPECIAL WORD OF THANKS TO EVERY COACH, PARENT AND SPONSOR WHO MADE THIS EVENT POSSIBLE!
