46 SWD/Eden Provincial Hockey Players at Oakhill

Oakhill is extremely proud of the 35 College and 11 Prep (U13) students who were selected to represent SWD/Eden at South African Inter-Provincial National and Regional Tournaments in Pietermaritzburg, Bloemfontein and George during the July school holidays. This outstanding achievement indicates an entrenched culture of hockey and a consistent trend over the past 4 years at Oakhill. Many of the Oakhill players were also elected to lead their respective teams as captains and vice-captains at the inter-provincial tournaments.

Many thanks to Oakhill staff who continue to dedicate themselves as coaches and administrators in the SWD/Eden Provincial Hockey structures.

Oakhill staff members Chicco Ponela (U18A Boys coach), Mechake Fanelo (U18A Girls coach), Brendan Keevey (U16A Boys Coach), Lumko Mart (U13A Boys Coach), Jason Trafford (U13A Boys Manager), Pheliswa Dayimani (U14 Girls manager) and René Korsten (Chairwoman of Eden Primary Girls’ Hockey) have once again been instrumental in developing the sport in the region this year.
