Monday 18 and Tuesday 19 February 2019: The latest events in the annual inter-house competition for points toward the Friedlander Shield saw senior grade tennis, junior and senior grades basketball and water polo in action across our sports facilities in perfect weather. A big thank you to our Teachers in Charge of the sports for designing and running high-speed shortened matches in round robin formats to facilitate play-offs for all eight positions in each event. The excitement and atmosphere of every encounter between our school houses was matched by high performance match skills and great sportsmanship across the board.

Wednesday 13 February 2019: This week our athletes prepared for the annual Zonal inter-school athletic event. This is the first round of knock out events for our athletes on the road to Western Province, and potentially South African athletics colours. Wynberg entered 50 athletes, and joining forces with Wynberg Girls' High we were able to enter more than 100 athletes into the event. Our athletes performed outstandingly, and Wynberg Boys' and Girls' combined placed first out of the 10 competing schools.
Below are some stand out individual performances.

Tuesday 12 February 2019: The Inter-House Gala was held in ideal conditions in the newly refurbished WBHS pool. While the lack of starting blocks undoubtedly influenced the ability to break records, it did nothing to dampen the spirit of the competing houses.
In the U14 events, the relays were dominated by Trovato House, while Tristan Baxter Elliot took first place in the 4x25m individual, medley, 25m butterfly, and 50m freestyle to claim the title of U14 champion. In the U16 category, the top results for the relays were split between Hawthornden, who claimed the 4x50m relay, and Silverhurst who took the 4x25m medley relay. Here there were a number of excellent individual performances with Dylan Bantam (100m Breaststroke, 100m Butterfly) and Josh Brown (50m Breaststroke, 50 Butterfly) each achieving individual victories. However, it was Connor Theron with his outstanding performances in the 4x25m individual medley, 200m Freestyle, 50m Backstroke and 100m Backstroke (setting a new record) who took top honours to become the U16 age group champion. In the U19 age group another contest for the top individual positions saw Timothy Meyer (4x25 Individual Medley, 100m & 200m Breaststroke), Luke Altmann (400m Freestyle, 50m Backstroke, 100m Butterfly and 100m Backstroke) and Stephen McCallum (100m Freestyle, 50m Butterfly, 200m Freestyle, 50m Freestyle) battle it out for the overall individual trophy. In the end it was Stephen McCullum who claimed the age group prize by anchoring both Silverhurst relay teams to victory, including a convincing win in the 4x50m relay that set a new record time. The final points and positions of each house read as follows: 1st Silverhurst – 283 points 2nd Oude Wijnberg – 216 points3rd Littlewood – 184 points4th McNaughton – 168 points5th Hawthornden – 165 points6th Glebe – 163 points7th Trovato – 131 points8th Sunninghill – 126 points

WBHS vs SACS Athletics, view the photos on Flickr
Friday 25 January 2019: A new event on the southern suburbs athletics calendar, the first recorded Wynberg / SACS meeting. A great afternoon of friendship, rivalry, and competition in the best sporting traditions of South Africa's two oldest schools. Thanks to one and all for the incredible support.
Welcome to the Hawthornden Field, and our first inter-schools athletics event of 2019. A special welcome to Mr Brendan Grant, the SACS staff, and particularly the athletes, supporters, and families.
Athletics is easily the oldest participation school sport, and while it would be fair to say that today’s competition between South Africa’s oldest boys’ schools must have its origins in the first half of the 19th century, this will be the first recorded formal bilateral athletics meeting between Wynberg and SACS. The sporting histories of our proud schools are rich in the records of our encounters on the fields and courts, and in aquatic pursuits - may today’s meeting become the first of many.
For generations of SACS and Wynberg Men the traditional derby matches to conclude summer and winter sporting seasons have been the annual highlights of rivalry and competition - it is with shared pride that we begin the competitive athletics season in just such spirit, a celebration of the reasons we play school sport.
