Edgemead High Matric student, Byron Mitchell, has once again proved his prowess as a race driver this year in having gone on to win both the Class C category and the overall 2019 Formula Libre Western Province Championship for the second consecutive year.
Whilst this was secured driving his Formula Vee Forza of the Dolphin Precision Engineering Racing Team, Byron also competed in the Mike’s Place Clubmans saloon car category of the Western Province Motor Club’s Power Series Race Meetings, taking his VW Golf to 2nd place in both Class E and that Championship challenge as well.
Byron is seen here behind the wheel of both of his cars during the respective category races at the Power Series event staged at Killarney International Raceway on Saturday 19 October, at which he was equally awarded the WPMC’s ‘Driver Of The Day’ trophy for the overall Race Meeting.
EHS netball girls attended the South African Schools Netball – SASN game vs Uganda at the Bellville Velodrome.
Rosemary Kawaza (grade 11) was selected to tour to Malaysia and Singapore as part of the Punt High School tournament Invitational netball team. She was also given the honour of captaining this team.
Winning both of their games in Malaysia as well as in Singapore allowed them to return unbeaten.
The 1st team cricket boy look exceptional as they stepped out onto the field for their first game against The Settlers High School in their new kit sponsored by Stiegelmeyer.
The EHS teams took on the past pupils this weekend and Edgemead High was the winner!
It was in fantastic spirit that the past pupils came back to EHS and played hockey or netball, we look forward to 2020 and including additional sports and having more Old Edgemedians join us.
