View Wynberg Cricket's photo timeline 2018

Friday 9 November 2018: Fourth term sport has wrapped up: our cricketers continued the fine form shown against Bishops by winning the lion’s share of matches in the final derby against SACS, with some notable performances:

1st XI: T Ntini 3/13 and Z Noor 4/23. R Carr 542nd XI: Lawrence 105*(127), Van Schalkwyk 91(123), a 196 run partnership. Schultz 4/38 (10)4th XI: D Hendriks 56 U15A: Prodehl 4/30 (10) U14A: won a thrilling match by one wicket courtesy of a SACS overthrow. This should not detract however from lower order heroics by Cullan Larkin who scored 22 not out coming in at number 11. A last wicket partnership of 51 by Larkin and Van Reenen secured a Wynberg win. L Harmse 4/57 (9.2). Z van Reenen 62*U14A vs WP U13: L Metu 46 and J James 45. M Bing 2/33 and C Larkin 2/45.U14B: L Meyer 4 wickets for 16 runs.U14C: ended the year unbeaten under the captaincy of Ryan Nell.U14D: C Broad smith 57* Wynberg Staff vs SACS: Thursday 8 November saw our Wynberg Staff failing to ram home the advantage against their SACS counterparts. After Adolf Groenewald, Andrew Wylie, and Pietie Loubser helped post 160 in 20 overs, some desperate bowling and fielding saw Wynberg relinquish the advantage for SACS to tie the match off the last ball.

All Wynberg Cricket results on our website  Tennis: The 6ths and 8ths won all their matches against SACS and Muizenberg respectively, with the 4ths and 5ths serving up convincing wins over Rondebosch and Herzlia. On Saturday 6 players from the 2nd and 3rd team played in a mixed doubles tournament with Herschel, Bishops, Rustenburg, SACS and St Cyprians. Wynberg drew St Cyprians as a mixed partner, winning 4 of the matches played.

Sports Roundup, Week Ending 2 March 2018

Friday 2 March 2018, Wynberg Boys' High School: The mornings are slightly cooler and the financial year has come to end, a signal that we have reached the last fortnight of summer sport. With tours and derby matches wrapping up the first term 2018, one can anticipate the season going out with a bang.

The Wynberg supporters caps have arrived. Only online orders through Moodle were recorded, caps may be collected from the Student Support Desk on submission of proof of payment.

The rugby department is sourcing an affordable and efficient practice jersey. An online order form will be published to Moodle soon - while the jerseys will be available this year, they will only become compulsory kit from 2019.

Athletics

Our boys competed against top athletes from Southern Zone schools in the zonal semi-final event held in Bellville. After a long day of competition, 16 of our athletes made it through to next round to form part of the Southern Zone team to take on teams from the Northern, Table Bay, and False Bay Zones for a place in the Western Province athletics team on Friday 2 and Saturday 3 March at the Vygieskraal track. The Western Province team will compete at the Western Cape Championships in Paarl on the weekend of 9 March.

Sports Roundup, Week Ending 9 February 2018

Above: Wynberg 1st Team in action against Westerford, 9 February 2018

Friday 9 February 2018, Wynberg Boys’ High School: With the Western Cape in the throes of the worst drought in living memory, it is understandable that some of our sporting fixtures have been negatively affected.  

The past fortnight has seen fixtures cancelled, rearranged, and in some cases, match formats have been changed to reduce playing time. Our teams are informed during the course of their school day of any changes, and we expect our students to communicate these with their parents directly in respect of transport, match support, and kit requirements. We thank you for your understanding.

A joint statement written by the Boys’ High Schools has been published and outlines our reasons for continuing with our sporting programme – albeit a curtailed one.  

The drought plan for sport for the rest of the term is as follows:

Position Statement: Curtailed Sports Programme in Response to Water Crisis

 

Tuesday 6 February 2018: at a recent meeting at Wynberg Boys' High School between the Headmasters of Wynberg, Bishops, SACS, and Rondebosch, a joint position on a measured and constrained school sports programme was undertaken.:

We note that the predicted date when Cape Town will run out of water has been pushed out to May. However, in the face of the rising concerns over water management and conservation, and the civic duty of every Capetonian to participate in water saving, we have reached the following resolutions:A severely curtailed and tightly managed summer sports programme will ensue. We will use only facilities fit to play on and which can be justifiably used without placing stress on playing surfaces.Water irrigation using ground water will adhere strictly to the directives prescribed by 6B restrictions: ‘a maximum of 1 hour on Tuesdays and Saturdays before 09:00 and after 18:00’. The following festivals that draw visitors from out of town have been cancelled: the Wynberg Rugby, Hockey, Squash, and Soccer Festival, the Nomads Hockey Festival and the Rondebosch under 16 Hockey Festival.In most cases there are no more than two further home games on the water polo schedule. Several school pools have or will be shut down for use with the view to playing a reduced programme at a centralised venue shared by preparatory and high schools. These pools will be recharged minimally using only treated borehole water. Match times and chukkas for lower teams will be reduced. Other than pre-planned visiting teams, no more than two further home cricket fixtures will be played and these will be reduced at most age group levels to either a 20 or 50 over game format.All sports practices will be cut back to fewer instances on the actual field of play i.e. in water polo, 1 pool and 1 land practice per week, and in cricket, 1 pitch and 1 net practice.  All of our schools are engaged in a serious and ongoing programme of education about water usage and its implications to our learners and community at large. Our schools are playing a significant and measurable part in water saving measures, some to the extent that we no longer draw on the dams and are to all intents and purposes off the ‘grid’. Others have implemented a disciplined water-saving regime including buckets of grey water for flushing and hand sanitisers for washing. We believe that in implementing the measures above we will be able to meet our civic responsibility to save water and keep Day Zero at bay. Should we reach a point of crisis, those schools with boreholes are investigating ways in which we share this water with places in need like old-age homes in the area and, if practicable, with schools that don’t have boreholes. The situation will be constantly monitored and evaluated and should further measures be required, they will be taken. We will communicate regarding winter sports at a later date.

Wynberg Sports Roundup, Week Ending 3 November

Friday 3 November 2017: With the year-end exams around the corner, this weekend heralds the end of most Term 4 sporting fixtures. Only cricket continues for one week beyond SACS with the Stayers playing matches vs Paarl Boys’ on 11  November.

While your sons will be hitting the books with vengeance next week, it would be good to see them utilising our sporting facilities as and when they feel the need to take a study break. The nets, courts, and fields are not going anywhere while organised sport takes a break.

Cricket

Wynberg recorded some very good wins against Bishops on the weekend. The highlights of the week would be Tristan Perez explosive 160 against  Bishops U15A and Cameron Tanner scoring his 2nd 100 of the week against Bishops 2nd XI. Kieron Adams u14A (70*) helped the U14’s to a comprehensive 7 wicket win while Imti Samaai’s off-spin (4/35) enabled the 2nd team to beat Bishops by 80 runs. The 1st squad will be looking to bounce back after consecutive losses when they play hosts to SACS this weekend, with many Matric boys playing their last WBHS fixtures along with 1st team coach Eric Lefson’s final match at the helm after a remarkable contribution to the game at Wynberg Boys’ High School over 18 years

Kyle Pluke was awarded his 100th cap last week against Bishops and Umar Anthony stands in line to receive his 100th cap this week against SACS.
