It always is encouraging to see a former champion pick themselves up off the floor and fight their way back to the very top and defy the naysayers who had all but written them off. In Maritzburg College we have just such a champion who were knocked unceremoniously off their throne last season after dominating school hockey for decades.

Hockey: The Results from the Past Week

The hockey season in nearing completion for many of the top teams and this past week saw Glenwood score a good victory over Affies to claw their way close to a top three finish.

Oranje steamed rolled past Collegiate during the past week with a convincing 6-1 to further extend their two year unbeaten run which now has included over 60 matches without defeat.

It was a golden chance that Maritzburg College had to take the top spot in the SA Schools Top 60 Rankings when they faced Pretoria Boys High, and all they had to do was win by a goal.

Stellenberg put on a brave effort against Millfield (UK) in the final of the Cape Town International Festival but had to settle for second place amongst a strong field of 22 teams. The good showing by Stellenberg helps to move them up the SA Schools Top 60 Rankings for Girls.

Hockey: Top 60 Girls Rankings

The highly successful St Andrews  Independant Hockey Festival held during the past week sees several of the leading teams consolidating their positions on the SA Schools Top 65 Rankings for girls.

Maritzburg College continue to creep closer towards the pinnacle of the SA Schools Top 65 Rankings after completing their 13th win of the season against the hapless DHS who are enduring one of their most wretched seasons to date.

A strong showing by Durban Girl’s College during the past week has pushed the KZN outfit into the top five where they join the leading teams in girl’s hockey.

Westville hang grimly to their top spot in the SA Schools Top 65 Rankings for Boy’s after notching up their 11th straight win as they sprint along this season with a only a solitary loss to their name.

The hockey season is busy producing some spectacular matches and this week we have no shortage of interesting match ups that will test the skills of some of the country’s elite teams.

Whilst the leading team in SA, Oranje Meisies, takes a well earned break before the next term’s matches begins there have been a couple of teams that have made a good move up the table.

A convincing performance by Westville against two Johannesburg rivals keeps them in poll position although the old KZN juggernaut, Maritzburg College are getting within a drag flick of them.
