Cameron Morgan (u15), Keenan Kistoo (u15), Thirunesan Naicker (u17) and Bhavin Doolabh (u17) were selected for the U15 and U17 Gauteng teams respectively. This is the second year that Thirunesan and Bhavin were selected for the Provincial teams. After a gruelling five day tournament, both teams made it to the finals. The Under 15 Boys team were successful in defeating Western Cape, winning gold while the Under 17 boys lost in a nail-biting final against Kwa-zulu Natal winning silver.
SBSM’s High School teams will be playing fixtures against other schools in the following weeks. We will be competing in the codes of chess, table-tennis and volleyball. All the best to all the participants.
