The atmosphere during the E-Bond Inter-High Athletics Meeting, which took place at the Pilditch Stadium on Monday, 19 February, was electric with the raw energy of anticipation and excitement. And when it was all over, the adrenaline was still pumping as just 93.5 points separated first and second places.

Victory went to HeronBridge College (HBC), whose boys finished first and their girls second, which secured the school from Fourways the top honours with a combined score of 2 236.5.

Woodhill College (Pretoria) pushed them all the way but had to settle for second place with 2 143.

Middle distance coach of HBC, Billy Beyneveldt, said the school was incredibly proud of all its track and field athletes, who were led from the front by the captains, Kaylin Stratton and Tiso Bhebhe.

“HeronBridge broke many of the existing records and we brought home a total of 126 medals,” he said.

Luke Zissimides of the winning school (u15) was awarded the Junior Field Victor Ludorum and Daniella Driessel (u17), also of HBC, was crowned the Senior Field Victrix Ludorum.

Lolwethu Makasi (u17) bagged the most points on the Athletics South Africa (ASA) table for senior girls with golds and new records in the 100m, 200m, and long jump.

Her record of 25.42 seconds in the 200m was worth a very healthy 859 points.

Caleb Webb was also a three-time winner, taking victories in the 200m, 400m and long jump.

Jennifer Watson (u17) matched that with three golds, too, for her efforts in the 800m, 1 500m and 3 000m.

“Thank you to HTS Tuine who hosted a most successful day,” said athletics organiser of Hebron, Gayle Williams.
