On 10 February we had our first Interschools athletics event at Parow High School and competed against Parow HS, Bosmansdam HS and Fairbairn College.
We sent 139 athletes to represent EHS 255 times.
We obtained 37 Bronze, 22 silver and 33 gold medals.
Our relay teams did exceptionally well, with 6 of the 8 winning the race. The u17 girls and u19 boys came a very narrow second.
We also received two best athlete awards: Hannah Davids (best u15 girl athlete) and Kearah Gentry (best u19 girl athlete).
Athletes that placed in the top 4 at Interschools were invited to compete at the Northern Zone Championship.
This took place at Parow Track on 17 and 18 February 2023.
We had 69 learners that qualified to compete, with 64 accepting the invitation. EHS was represented 99 times.
The Northern Zone Championship comprises over 40 schools in our district which includes top competitors such as Brackenfell HS, Stellenberg HS and Durbanville HS. Our athletes did really well with most of them beating their personal bests.
