Hermanus High School held their first Inter-schools cricket match against Worcester Gymnasium on Saturday. The game marked the first of many as Worcester Gymnasium will now be participating in Hermanus High’s annual Winter Sports Inter-schools. Hermanus previously competed against Overberg High School in Caledon, but after 25 years the Hermies have outgrown Ovies’ sports teams. The Hermanus High first team cricket boys also received their caps on Saturday in a quick capping ceremony before the game. The first team match was a tough one, with Worcester Gymnasium managing to take the win, meaning that their school’s name will be the first to be engraved on the trophy. Hermanus High will only have a chance to reclaim the trophy in 2021 at the next Inter-schools Cricket. The two schools will face off in rugby, netball and hockey later this year in the Winter Sports Inter-schools. Pictured on the below is the Hermanus High First Cricket team.
