Equestrian

In the first inter-schools Equestrian competition of the year, the Saints team did particularly well in the show-jumping events:

 In the 1.2m competition over 2 rounds Harry took both the first place on Devious Suzie and second place on Alzu Safari

 In the 1.2m speed event over a tough course of one round, only one rider (Kristi Fourie from the Girls’ College) jumped clear to win the event, while Harry knocked one pole to take 4th place

 In the 1.1m competition Harry competed for the first time on his new horse, Capital Contact, and jumped clear in 30.81 seconds to take 2nd place.

 In the 1.1m speed class Harry and Capital Contact set a fast pace early in the event and no one could beat their time, so they took first place

 Saints also took the honours in 90cm competition which went right down to the wire with Piper Crow from the GC taking first place.

 Harry also took 2 further 2nd places in other events.

Well done to Harry and the whole Saints team for a great start to the year.

Athletics meeting hosted by Hoërskool Alberton

On Friday 1 February St Stithians Boys’ College Athletics team competed in an athletics meeting hosted by Hoërskool Alberton and attended by both the Boys’ College and Hoërskool Brandwag.

It was a day filled with good spirit, energy and great enthusiasm from our athletes. This translated into good performances with several of our athletes placing under the top three in their events on the day.

The day was unfortunately influenced by the weather and some of the events were cancelled because of the threat of lightning.

There should be special mention of the following athletes, they managed to come first in their events in sometimes terrible weather conditions and in very strong field of competitors:

 Ty Mazibuko – 800m u/14

 Ethan Algeo – 400m u/14

 Oliver McAslin – High Jump u/15

 Bono Mutangwa – Long Jump u/15

 Timna Hangana – Long Jump u/16

A special congratulations to these boys and congratulations to all the other boys who competed, did their best and represented the Boys’ College well.

The next big meeting will be the Group 7 Interhigh on Monday 11 February also hosted by Hoërskool Alberton. 7

Rock the Boat Regatta

Rock the Boat Regatta provides Rowers with a different and fun format of racing, where all members of the Gauteng Rowing community enter and compete against each other. This means our u14s up to Opens are pitted against Olympians and Masters both male and female, however it is not about who crosses the line first.

Times are taken and compared against the world best times in their events as a percentage. Results are thus based on percentages much like school marks, and boats ranked accordingly for final positions at the end of the day.

In the 1000m event, the top 3 percentages from St Stithians were as follows:

 3rd with a percentage of 87.71 was the u14 Double of Nathan Schmidt and Kai Morais;

 2nd with 89.19% was the 1st VIII who were the fastest boat of the day; however impressively,

 1st with 89.53% was the u15 Double of Vuyo Sibanda and Sean Bell.

Close to 90% of the World best time at this stage of the season and in slow conditions is highly encouraging.

In the 2000m event, in even slower conditions which explain the lower percentages, the top 3 from St Stithians were:

 The 1st Coxless Four with 78.33% came home 3rd;

 2nd with 81.81% was the u16 pair of Aidan Urquhart and Armand van der Colf; and

 The top percentage was the 1st Four of Liam Keegan, Michael Laburn, Dylan Schmidt, Sheldon Nash and Campbell White with 83.52%.
