All the teams played extremely well and the Hermanus teams won many of the games, including the first team netball girls, rugby boys and hockey girls. The first team hockey boys were not so fortunate, but they played their hearts out despite the tough competition.

It was a special win for the first team netball girls, as this was the first time since 2014 that the they had beaten Worcester Gymnasium in a game. The final score was 32 – 27.

The first team rugby boys also faced tough competition, but took an early lead in the first half. During the second half Worcester fought back hard and almost managed to catch up – until the Hermanus team scored two consecutive tries in the last ten minutes. This ensured a 35 – 22 victory for Hermanus High.

All the players demonstrated great sportsmanship throughout the day. Hermanus High School’s next winter sports day will be in Brackenfell on Saturday 13 July against Brackenfell High School.
