Participating at the prestigious St Stithian’s College Festival last weekend, the St Andrew’s College U16A team – with the majority of players coming from the U15 age group – lost all their matches against the stronger Windhoek International School, Pretoria Boys, Kearsney College, American International School of Johannesburg, St David’s Marist and International School of South Africa. They only lost by narrow margins of less than 5 points in all matches.
The host, St Stithian’s College, were the tournament winners, beating Michaelhouse in the final.
The other schools’ coaches and tournament organisers voted Giniello Jansen of St Andrew’s as the tournament Most Valuable Player (MVP).
