A trio of Saint Andrew's junior school boys shone in sporting events recently. Dewan de Bruin (left) made his mark in the Goldfields Junior Golf Open. He contested the under-11 age group and walked away the winner. In swimming, Roald Basson (middle) won three medals at the Bloemfontein Otters Championships of the Future Gala. Competing in the boys' eight-and-under age group, he picked up silver medals in the 50 metres backstroke and breaststroke, and was third in the 50m freestyle. Harry Marangellis (right) claimed two bronze medals in the same gala, in the under-nine 50 metres backstroke and breaststroke.
The Saint Andrew's 1st XI were in superlative form against Grey High School when the teams met in a T20 clash in Bloemfontein on the weekend, cruising to an emphatic seven-wicket win. The visitors from Port Elizabeth opted to bat first but they were soon in trouble as SA Colts' fast-bowling all-rounder, Gerald Coetzee, laid waste to their top order batting. Coetzee snapped up 5 for 7 in his 4 overs as Grey stumbled out of the gates to 13 for 5 and, eventually, 72 all out. The low victory target proved little obstacle for Saints, who needed only 11.1 overs to seal the win. Opening batsman, Garnett Tarr, struck six fours in his 29 not out to secure an impressive win over a school with a strong cricketing tradition.
