SLC win Independent Athletics

Last Friday the entire school travelled to Polokwane to defend their title as Independent Schools’ Athletics Champs. It has been some time since the whole school went to this event and the spirit and support from the stands, led by the Spirit Committee, was incredible. Our athletes had to work exceptionally hard against some good competition from PEPPS and Curro Heuwelkruin in particular. Zayd Moosa broke the U/17 Boys shot-put record, and Isabella Brett set a new girls U/15 Discus record. Nanaki Kgopong put together an amazing performance on the day, scoring more points than any other athlete, earning her the trophy of Senior Victrix Ludorum. Despite these great individual performances, it was a real team effort, especially in the relays where SLC scored 86 points ahead of Curro’s 80 points. In the end, we won the event for the 9th year in a row (and 15th year in total) scoring 733 total points. Well done Stanfordians – pupils and coaches.
