Rugby KZN Representatives
DHS makes history with KZN Selections for Rugby! We are immensely proud to announce that DHS has produced six Craven Week players and two U17 Academy Week players for the year 2022. This is another record for School, as it is the fourth time in our Rugby History, which dates back to 1910, that six or more players have been selected for Natal/KZN Schools. However, it is the first time ever that six DHS players have been selected for Craven Week as the Craven Week Tournament only officially started in 1964. The last time six or more DHS players were selected for Natal/KZN Schools was in the year 1941!
These selections are a true testament to the work that has been put into the DHS Sports Programme since the arrival of new Leadership and Management of School. We are beyond proud.
Congratulations to all of the following boys:
Connor Carson, Christian Everitt, Deano Boesak, Tholithemba Sibisi, Dwight Pietersen, Simphiwe Ngobese
U17 Academy Week:
Florensen Ockhuis, Maurice Willemse
In addition, the following DHS Staff have been selected to represent KZN in either Managerial or Coaching positions:
Mr Morné Jansen van Rensburg – Manager U17 Sharks Academy Week
Mr Florian Genade – Manager Grant Khomo U16
Mr Lyle Matthysen – Assistant Coach U17 Sharks Academy Week
Congratulations to all three of you Gentlemen on these fantastic achievements.
Hockey KZN Representatives
36, yes, 36 KZN Hockey Representatives for DHS! In addition, Director of Hockey, Mr Michael Baker, is selected as KZN U18A Hockey Coach, and five other DHS coaches as KZN reps.
The announcement that no less than 36 DHS players will be representing KZN in Hockey for 2022 is a testament to the continuous work of Mr Michael Baker and his coaching staff, and how they are breaking boundaries at our school. The turnaround in DHS Hockey can be attributed to our phenomenal coaching staff, and these selections are very much deserved rewards for your passion and commitment to the Sport of Hockey.
