12 Feb MJ Zwane Athletics Champs
Uplands is incredibly proud of all the athletes that represented our school with such brave hearts on Saturday 8th February. After a very emotional start to the day, remembering MJ and his untimely passing, our athletes gave it their all for MJ.
Uplands bagged a total of 63 medals on the day, which included 22 Gold, 26 Silver and 15 Bronze medals. Uplands accounted for 30 percent of all medals that were available. A total of 10 schools were in attendance.
Duné Haasbroek was also awarded a trophy for the best track athlete on the day for her individual performance in the U10 Girls’ 1200m. She scored a total of 703 points on the ASA 2020 table for her efforts.
As a school, we should like to express a huge thank-you to Penryn Prep School for hosting an incredible event and wish St Peter’s in Mbombela all the best in their planning for next year.
