Congratulations to our First Team League Tennis girls for winning their match against The Wykeham Collegiate on Tuesday, 7 February. The match was scored on a points system and the girls won convincingly with a final score of 24-3. Mrs Lyndal Robertson, our Head of Sport, says, “In all of my years of being involved in KZN Midlands Tennis, this is the first time that St John’s D.S.G. has won. I am very proud of the girls, who we affectionately now refer to as The Yellow Strings.”
Maxine Bateman, one of our First Team Tennis girls, says, “We really enjoyed playing against The Wykeham Collegiate girls. They were strong competitors and I don’t think the score reflects how well they played. I loved the team spirit that St John’s D.S.G. demonstrated. We watched each other’s games and cheered for one another; I think it’s important to do this because then each player feels supported.” Well done to these girls – you are wonderful ambassadors for our school.
