ST Mary’s DSG in Kloof hosted an exciting and nail-biting edition of its prestigious annual U16 Hockey Tournament recently.

The 2017 event catered for 16 teams from schools across South Africa and is the largest U16 interschool’s girls hockey tournament in KwaZulu-Natal.

The competition was fierce, with the final being contested by Hoërskool Menlopark and Hoërskool Waterkloof, with Menlopark winning through a sudden death playoff after a 1 – 1 full time score.
