At the beginning of this year the athletics team showed great promise and enthusiasm. A large number of girls came regularly for training, although a few were not up to the 1960 team's standard.
Thanks to the hard work and excellent training by our staff, the team chosen for the Athletics meeting, in the first term of this year, was very successful. Eveline won the McHigwalong Cup for the second year in succession, with 105½ points, and Townsend was the runner-up, with 95 points. The other schools who took part were St. Peters, Northlea and Convent. This victory was the reward of hard, regular training. Congratulations go to the girls, and to Mrs. Withersand Miss Katzenellenbogen for their kind co-operation in making this year such a success.
Three records were broken by Eveline, the 100 yards, under 14, by M. van Niekerk, the Under 14 Long Jump, by E. MacLoughlin, with a record jump of 15 feet 5 inches., and the Under 14 High Jump, by L. Schofield, with a jump of 4 feet 9 inches.
Colours were awarded to R. Hitchcock.
Team girdles were awarded to:
Seniors: Z. Walker, T). Miskin and A. Pieterse.
Juniors: S. Baynard, E. Benzon, M. Hyde, G. Powell, R. Brazendale, L. Lambert and A. White.
This year has been a great success, and I hope that next year this high standard of achievement will be
