Limpopo premier Stanley Mathabatha, has blamed the lack of water experienced in various communities in the province, on the Water Services Act. According to him the Act deprives the government of the land and resources it could utilize to supply people with water. He stopped short of blaming the Democratic Alliance (DA) for the water crisis arguing their members own 60% of the

dams and rivers in the province. He was responding to the questions in the legislature following the State of the Province Address (SOPA) on Thursday. Mathabatha said all the water sources in the province are in private hands. He said the Water Services Act gives farmers water licences to control all the dams and rivers and until it has been changed water crisis’ are here to stay.

Residents of Thabine and Maake in the Lenyenye area demanded that the Mopani District Municipality (MDM) provide them with water from the newly completed Thabine Bulk Water Reticulation project completed two years ago. But the project turned into a white elephant as since it was completed, there has never been any water in the villages. The project was implemented by the MDM in 2014 and completed in 2016 at a tune of R 38 million. Water was sourced from the Thabine dam and was meant to supply Mosorong, Thabine, Mokomotji, Nabane, and Moime

“The Water Services Act makes it imperative that land be taken from its owners and the water licences would then be the property of the government. This would help bring the problem of water in rural villages to an end. It is because of this that we see trucks loaded with water leaving the province to Cape Town because the municipality affected is controlled by the DA,” he said.

The premier also called departments to manage their finances properly saying the misuse of money by departments during the art festivals should be curbed. He said he had instructed the Director General to launch a probe after the sum of R 2,2 million was paid to an international artist but did not honour the invitation or refund the money.

Premier blames water crisis on Water Act

villages. The standpipes however, remain barren. Spokesperson for the community, Johannes Maenetja, said the community is fed up with the empty promises they received from the municipality. He said they often without water for more than a month despite the fact that a lot of money was paid to the contractor. “Always when we approached the municipality we are told that the reason there is no water in the area is due to the fact that some people connected water illegally to their homes. Our people are sometimes attacked by criminals when they leave home at night to

fetch water, or they return home to find they have been burgled.” Spokesperson for the MDM, Neil Shikwambana, said that they are aware of the problem and are in consultation with the community to rectify the situation. He said after the project was completed two years ago some members of the community illegally connected water from the main pipe to their homes thus hampering the smooth supply of water to other villages. He said as an immediate solution to the problem the MDM resolved to drill more boreholes to supplement the available water sources

in the village. The move was rejected by the community upfront saying that they want water from the new reticulation project. However Shikwambana added that technicians were sent to the area to investigate the matter and a decision would be taken thereafter. By the time of going to print, residents were due to meet at the Moime sports ground to deliberate on the water problems in the villages. The water crisis which affected the Lenyenye township for the past two weeks after the mainline burst, was solved last week Thursday after a contractor was hired to fix the problem.

Phalaborwa streetlights cast tender shadows The Ba-Phalaborwa Municipality has finally deemed it necessary to answer an official media enquiry into their awarding of a streetlight tender to a Tzaneen-based contractor. This is despite one of the conditions being that the contractor had to be local. We asked the BPM’s spokesperson, Jonas Mahesu, to clarify. “The contractor is Rivisi Electrical from Tzaneen, his tender was evaluated by the Tender Evaluation Committee as per SCM requirements, and was recommended for appointment, thus meeting all the requirements as per SCM policy and requirements.” According to Rivisi’s website, the company is based in Giyani. One of the requirements for a successful tender award was that the contractor had to own his own cherry picker to complete the project. Bulletin received reliable information that a local fencing company’s truck was hired by Rivisi in order to start the project. Mahesu denied this. “The contractor has his own cherry picker and a site office has been erected as stipulated by the tender conditions.” We are still not able to establish where the site office is situated and with the project apparently already on track and nearing completion, there are still no project information boards erected as expressly stipulated in the tender conditions. We also wanted to know why the BPM was allegedly assisting Rivisi with equipment and vehicles. “The issue (project information boards) is still outstanding, and would be addressed at the site meeting scheduled for 14 March,”

Mahesu said. “It is not sure what is referred to as help. The Municipality does the disconnection and re-connection of the streetlight circuits in order for the Service provider to work safely, but is not helping in any other way. The Municipality did not hire any truck to assist him at any time.” According to Mahesu, the money for this project is an EEDMS (Energy Efficient Demand Side Management) grant from the department of energy. There are only three municipalities in Limpopo that received grants for this during the 2017/18 financial year. A further application was made to continue with the project during the 2018/19 financial year in the outlying areas including Namakgale and Lulekani. The Department oversees the project, and Ba-Phalaborwa Municipality has allegedly already received inspections by the ‘Specific Consultant’ and officials of the department. Mahesu alleged that during the past week an audit was done by the department’s auditors. “The progress at the moment is satisfactory,

Stand van Damme Dam Levels

and the Electrical Section of the municipality is committed to ensure smooth completion of the project,” he added. Local electrical contractors who lost out on the tender, are scratching their heads as they watch the project unfold. Why was the tender awarded to an outside company? Why are Rivisi technicians seen working on cherry pickers branded with local companies’ insignia? Why is the project five months behind schedule and why have many of the tender conditions been ignored without fear of penalties levied? All attempts to contact Rivisi for comment have failed and the landline number on their website is missing a digit. We contacted the 083-757-6322 number listed on their page and were asked to contact a man by the name of Charlie on 073447-9251. We left a message on his answering service and hopefully we will have a follow up to clarify the matter in our next edition. — Joe Dreyer

Residents relieved at Marula’s exit

The annual Marula Festival took its toll again this year with 22 stabbings, six reported cases of rape and five motor vehicle accidents over this past weekend reported at the Maphuta Malatji hospital outside of town. These figures were provided to Bulletin by a reliable source inside the hospital. We have not been able to confirm the exact statistics yet, as we have not been able to reach a spokesperson for the hospital. While the residents’ concerns fell on deaf ears over the past decade, the Limpopo Department of Economic Development, Environment and Tourism (LEDET) and the Ba-Phalaborwa Municipality have decided to move the festival away from its current location at Impala rugby club, to the more suitable Ingwe Park. Many defended the festival stating that it provides a much needed annual financial injection into the ailing local economy. Reports of drunken behaviour, sexual assault, littering and excessive drinking and driving have however forced the

organizers to rethink their strategy. “The problem is that in excess of 2 000 festival goers flock to Impala Park which is situated right in the centre of a residential area in Phalaborwa. They get to the gates and refuse to pay the R120 entrance fee, so they setup their camping chairs outside the venue in the street and drink while still enjoying the music coming from the stage inside. These people become intoxicated and end up urinating, fornicating and even sleeping in the gardens of the properties adjacent to the sports grounds.” It is not just the residents who were up in arms about the

festival either. The Limpopo Arts and Culture Youth Forum (LACYF) accused LEDET of failing to empower local artists. The Forum were so unhappy about the exclusion of local talent that they marched to the offices of LEDET in Polokwane on the 16th of February to demand answers. The group was apparently waved away. “The organizers export money to their friends in Gauteng. How can the local economy flourish if local people are left out,” said LACYF deputy Chairperson, Freddy Molope in an interview with African Times recently. For all intent and purposes, the Marula Festival at Impala Park will now be a thing of the past and the venue has been confirmed as Ingwe Park as of next year. — Joe Dreyer

Paintings in the Park takes place in the open grassed area in Haenertsburg on the last Sunday of every month, weather permitting. This time there was only one sale as the sun refused to come out and be nice. Two young girls pondered for ages over the artworks. Eventually they decided to buy one of the R450 miniatures displayed on the table. They wanted to thrill their

mother with what they deemed the best art that day. Shortly after the sale the girls returned with crest fallen faces. Their mother was angry that they’d spent so much money and ordered them to return the painting and get a refund. Pieter de Beer and Renier Oosthuizen, who run the monthly exhibition, smiled graciously and refunded the two young ladies.

Peanuts, Anna’s saving grace

In October last year Bulletin ran a story about Anna Sono, the 80-year old informal farmer tilling the soil in Flora Park. This week we revisited her where she was busy harvesting peanuts in her fields. “The mielies this year failed,” she said with a broken smile. “The goggas came and ate the storks, and the rain was not sufficient. But the peanuts are good. We will survive at least.” Anna and her long-time friend Maria (76) will harvest their peanut crop and sell it to the vendors back home in the townships for a pittance. From the money they make they will plant new crops. “We will pray for rain and protection this season. It has been bad, but we are used to it and so we carry on.”

Tannie Joey vier 80 jaar Die SAVF Tzaneen Kleuterskool het vroeër hierdie week ‘n baie spesiale verjaarsdag gevier. Tannie Joey Prinsloo, die tweede skoolhoof van hierdie Kleuterskool, het op die 4de Maart 80-jaar oud geword. Tannie Joey het in 1976 die pos van skoolhoof bekleë. Sy was 21 jaar lank die hoof voordat Annette Eastes by haar die leisels oorgeneem het. Die kleuters en onderwysers by die SAVF Tzaneen Kleuterskool, het tannie Joey se verjaarsdag saam met haar Dinsdagoggend gevier.

Come have a lekker kuier man It all started when one of OK Sugarhill Minimarket’s suppliers approached store manager, Hannelie van Niekerk, and asked to exhibit some of their products over a weekend to introduce their range to the Tzaneen public. Hannelie felt that it was a fantastic idea and decided to turn the day into a genuine market day with face painting for the kids and a few stalls for the visitors to browse through. Compliments of Freddy Hirsch spices, there was a boerewors tasting tent for the avid red meat lovers and local brewer, Zwakala completing the perfect combination with their variety of local brews.

Nicky Altenroxel displayed some of her jewellery and crafts and the very popular resident “beadman”, Willard had some of his latest pieces on exhibition. Sugarhill offered facepainting for the kids and two adorable jesters welcomed visitors to the store. This inaugural day became the springboard which will see more of these days hosted in the Sugarhill parking lot as the months roll by. One exciting date has already been set in the World Class retailer’s dairy. “On the 5th of May there will be a

potjiekos competition held right here on our premises. It will be a business challenge and each team will enter their best recipe,” explained an excited Hannelie. “And we will not be judging the pot on the garnish, the mixtures or the technique. We just want to taste what the pot tastes like and the one that tastes the best will win.” Business are invited to enter the competition at only R200 per team irrelevant of the number of team mates. The money will go into the pot as grand prize for the winner. Teams are invited to bring their own cooler boxes and have a good old fashioned ‘kuier’. — Joe Dreyer

Granny’s Grumbles – hospital food

Many years ago, during the Rhodesian war, I had a very good friend who was a nursing sister in the orthopaedic section of the largest hospital in Harare. Obviously this was where all the young men wounded in action, either shot or blown up, would be brought. Cheryl saw it all, including her fiancée being flown in and dying in the very ward where she worked. In spite of all the horror she saw, there were moments that stayed with her for years and they were in fact quite humorous, especially if you were not emotionally involved. Cheryl was on day shift when Jimmy was wheeled into her ward. Since he had been unconscious when he was air-lifted to the hospital he was obviously unaware that his leg had been amputated and it was going to be Cheryl’s job to break the news to him. After he had been delivered to the ward, the cage placed over his non-existent leg and he was comfortable Cheryl went about waking him up. When he was totally conscious, he looked at the cage and said “Have they cut it off” Cheryl replied in the affirmative (in a sympathetic tone obviously) whereupon Jimmy let out a screech that could be heard at the other end of the hospital. He kept screeching and saying he had no reason to live. You have to be cruel to be kind so Cheryl told him somewhat sharply that the guy in the bed opposite had lost a leg and an arm and had never carried on like this. Jimmy stopped abruptly. “Is it my leg they’ve cut off?” Cheryl told him that yes it was indeed his leg that had been amputated. “Only my leg?” Cheryl suddenly realised what was going on in his mind. She got hold of his hand, raised the blanket and told him to check. A minute later Jimmy was beaming. There was never another squawk out of him and he was a model patient from then on. And now on to the young man who had lost an arm and a leg. He had been in hospital for some six weeks and had been issued with a wheelchair to get around the hospital. He visited patients in other wards and had become a great favourite with everybody. Men being men, the other patients in the ward called him “Stumpie”. One evening Cheryl had just arrived

to start night shift – she was in the ward staff room looking at the paperwork when Stumpie wheeled himself in. He told her that he was sick of hospital food. Cheryl commiserated with him – she had been having her share of hospital food for a few years and knew the feeling. Stumpie reminisced about his favourite restaurant – the Mokodor – and said he thought he would go there and have a decent meal. Cheryl was busy – loads of paperwork – she wasn’t really taking too much notice of what he said and merely mumbled agreement. When she eventually went into the ward to check on all the patients she noticed that he was missing but since he spent a lot of time scooting around the hospital, she didn’t really worry too much However, when she went to turn the lights off at 9 o’clock and he still wasn’t in his bed she asked the guy in the next bed if he had any idea where Stumpie was. “At the Mokodor” was the reply. Cheryl’s heart sank. Losing a patient was the ultimate sin for the nursing staff. The patient who had broken the news appeared quite upset as he had told Stumpie that Cheryl must be told. Well, Stumpie had told her, but Cheryl had never thought that he would actually disappear and since the Mokodor was about three km from the hospital she could not figure out how he would have got there. Anyway, she had to phone the Hospital Superintendent and break the news and also confess that he had told her but she hadn’t believed that he would actually disappear. Within a short space of time, the police were despatched to Mokodor to search for the errant Stumpie who was returned albeit ten sheets to the wind. The entire story was relayed to the ward the following morning. Stumpie, it transpired, after clearing it with Cheryl (or so he thought) had wheeled himself out into the car park where numerous taxis were always lined up waiting for passengers. He explained that he wanted to go to the Mokodor and the taxi driver helped him into the taxi and folded up his wheelchair and off they went. The driver also got him into the elevator when they reached the building where the Mokodor was situated. When Stumpie arrived at the reception desk (in his hospital pyjamas nogal), he apologised for his dress and explained that another night of hospital food would have been the end of him. He just wanted a quiet corner where he could have a decent meal. The receptionist was having none of that - she walked over to a large table where a party was in progress, told them that one of the war-wounded had just escaped from hospital and she asked if he could join their table. As Stumpie explained it – all the women were fighting to cut up his food for him and all the men were fighting to ply him with drinks. “The best night of his whole life” And you are wondering about the happy ending……..Well Jimmy married his fiancée who had absolutely no problem with a one-legged man and Stumpie had made so many friends, not only soldiers, but also his friends from the Mokodor that he had more friends than he had ever had, And everybody lived happily ever after!!

SHALOM. We are always looking for a quick fix for most things and especially for our health. However, it takes time to investigate the cause of the illness, or what is plaguing us. Doctors have to train for many years and continue to train in order to diagnose our symptoms. But when it comes to our brain many variables are seen. Our faith needs to be strong when we are given the news that something is wrong with us. There are unfortunately many charlatans out there, those professing that they have the knowledge to cure almost anything. This also applies to those who are in the church leadership, but have not had any formal training. My question to them is “why do I have to pay to have you pray for me?” Some church give their congregants concoctions to cure them declaring these to be blessed and if they do not work then it is the congregant’s fault that their faith is too weak to be cured. Unfortunately, they often have paid a vast some of money for this cure. God empowers all of us with gifts, I believe that He has given medical doctors the gift of healing although this gift can be present in others as well. But it is by His power and His power only that we are able to use these gifts. A lady came to the church the last week and asked if I could assist her as she had been told that she was demon possessed. To all intents and purposes she seemed completely normal and lucid. She asked me for some special cure to remove the snake that was living inside her body. She was looking for some sort of exorcism. I told her I do not have any special powers and that I felt that only God could cure her, however, I said I would intercede for her and ask God to bless her. I know that it is God’s almighty power that can heal and we are mere vessels which He can choose to use or not. Yet unfortunately there are those of us who want to believe we can cure all sorts of ills without God’s intervention. Prayer is a powerful tool and if use correctly can aide in the improvement of life. Sin is and will always be with us, but forgiveness is in the power of the Risen Christ. Have you accepted Christ as your Saviour or are you like the lady I mentioned putting your hope on earthly things? Do not be afraid to confess the Risen Christ and peace will come to you. Blessings

Marloe displays her culinary talents Marloe Scott Wilson (68), once known as the Pink Lady during her years as a performer, is now living her dream. She hung it up at the age of 50 and bought a piece of land outside Haenertsburg about a decade ago. It’s now her permanent home with an organic vegetable and herb garden. She lives with two horses, two cats, six dogs and her husband, Fredl, comes home from Phalaborwa every weekend. Laughingly Marloe says, “Fredl’s surname is van der Merwe! He has two adult children from a previous marriage. Lana (33) lives in CT and Fredl (31) is in Brisbane, Australia. I had to sing at a ball hosted by the Phalaborwa Mining Company years ago. Fredl, a civil engineer, was the only single senior level

manager and thus my companion for the evening. We fell in love and married eight months later.” Bev Hartman from Something Different and Marloe are friends from Phalaborwa days. Bev needed help in the restaurant and Marloe wanted an outlet for her culinary creativity, other than Instagram and her blog. She’d owned a restaurant called Marloe’s in Phalaborwa for four years. Prior to that, she had a tea garden and nursery. Marloe attributes her love for cooking to her mother, Honey. “My mum let me cook for the family on a Thursday night from the age of 15. For years I was food obsessed, resulting in all sorts of diets which played havoc with my system over the years. I finally decided to really nurture me and I took up low carb cooking as a permanent lifestyle change.” Marloe has already introduced staples on the Something Different menu. There’s Vegan friendly Thai Vegetable Curry, Mexican Spiced Beans, Thai Chicken Curry and Steak Strips in a creamy Mustard sauce. The menu will change regularly.

then the UK. She played the sixth Mary Magdalene in Jesus Christ Superstar at the Palace Theatre in London from 1978 to 1979. Then she joined the Fringe Theatre Company and performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. She was delighted with one critic who said, “She sang ‘Night and Day’ with fire in her voice.” Thereafter she took a two month break to South Africa and never left. She continued to entertain South African audiences. She won a Gallo Award in 1980 for a musical play by Paul Simon called ‘They’re Playing Our Song.’ She became the narrator in ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat’ in Durban in 1982. Then tragedy struck. She was on her motorbike. A Free State farmer pulled out illegally and she was man down for almost a year. Arms, left foot, right foot, fingers and toes were broken and her lower back before the coccyx was fractured. The first person on the scene was a doctor who mercifully had morphine with him. The Phalaborwa heat drove her into the cool mountains around Haenertsburg and ten years ago she entered her first and last Ebenezer Mile. Marloe chuckles and says, “I breast-stroked all the way and came second…. last! The late Gub Turner came last and she turned 81 the next day. I missed the finishing deadline by 15 seconds.”

Colourful day encourages reading “The more you read, the more you know. The more you learn, the more places you’ll go.” – A famous quote by Dr Seuss and Unicorn Preparatory was the place to go last week Wednesday, 28 February, when the Intersen Phase pupils and teachers celebrated Dr Seuss and the adventure of reading. This fun and colourful day coincided with the hosting of the Travelling Bookshop, which visits the school twice a year. The children invited their grandparents to listen to their reading with a cup of tea, followed by a visit to the bookshop. The older children took time out to read to the younger children and great fun was had by all – even the teachers dressed up for the occasion.

‘The Grinch’ visits the Foundation phase.

Intersen phase teachers show the pupils “a thing or two” about Dr, Seuss.

A ‘Thing’ reads to some of the younger children.

Vossie-netbal begin met agt uit die nege! Verlede Saterdag het Ben Vorster kragte teen Hoërskool Frikkie Meyer in die PUK-reeks netbal toernooi gemeet. Die Rooies het agt uit die nege wedstryde gewen. Die O/14A-span het baie mooi gespeel en hulle teenstanders met 29-18 getroef terwyl die O/14B-span ook gewys het hoeveel diepte in hierdie groep is deur met 28-12 te seëvier. Die O15A-span het gesukkel om die oorhand te kry, maar tog die knoop deurgehaak en met 19-12 gewen. Die O/15B-span het koning gekraai met 16-13 terwyl die O/16A’s goeie netbal opgedis en soos ‘n geoliede masjien gespeel het. Hul wentelling was 21-10. Die O/16B-span het geen teenkanting gehad nie en het met ‘n telling van 27-3 van die baan gestap. Die senior dogters (O/17A-

span) het van meet af die krane oopgedraai en die doele een na die ander ingeryg om met ‘n sege van 31-8 klaar te maak. Die Tweedespan het egter die knie net-net gebuig teen die span van Frikkie Meyer en 16-18 verloor. Die Vossies se NTT-Toyota Eerste span het tydens die eerste kwart bietjie gesukkel, maar vanaf die tweede kwart mekaar gevind en akkurate bewegings uitgevoer. Die Vossie-doel, Lati Mokoro, het met haar akkurate doelwerk die Vossies gou laat asem skep. Die verdedigers, Nielia Blignaut en Dora Maloba, het dit vir die doele van Frikkie Meyer baie moeilik gemaak om enigsins in die sirkel te kan beweeg en verseker dat hul span met ‘n telling van 37-19 seevier. Die naweek se kragmeting teen Klerksdorp behoort veel sterker teenkanting te wees.

NTT Toyota Eerste netbal span: Chanele Machimane en Dora Maloba. Nicole Bergsma, Lourencia van Dyk, Nielia Blignaut (kaptein), Nthabiseng Ramothwala, Kagiso Mapiti en Molatelo Makoro.

NTT-Toyota vir Netbal Ben Vorster se Eerste netbal span is weer bevoorreg om NTT-Toyota as hul borg vir hulle klere vir 2018 te hê. NTT borg die Vossies sedert 2015 en die skool bedank Mnr. Pieter van Heerden vir sy voortgesette betrokkenheid by hierdie span. LINKS: Mnr. Pieter van Heerden van NTT-Toyota oorhandig die uitrusting aan Nielia Blignaut die kaptein vir 2018 en afrigter me.

Vossie hokkie op dreef Die 2018 hokkie seisoen het verlede naweek afskop met hokkie wedstryde tussen Hoërskool Ben Vorster en Hoërskool Frikkie Meyer van Thabazimbi. Die wedstryde het plaaslik geskiet. Die kompetisie was straf en het deel uit gemaak van die PUK-reeks, maar die Vossies het baie goed gevaar en vier van hul sewe wedstryde gewen en drie gelykop gespeel. Die O/14A-span het geskitter met ‘n telling van 6-0. Die doele is deur Elzet Toerien, Joalize Smit en Nachandre de Lange aangeteken, twee doele elk. Die O/16A-span het die eerste helfde van hul wedstryd baie aanvallend begin en het met rustyd 5-1 voorgeloop om uiteindelik die kragmeting met ses doele teenoor een te wen. Die doele is deur Lorinda Esterhuizen, Vanessa

Nkanyani, René Thete, Lihani Vorster, Marli Lombard en Jana Oberholzer aangeteken. Die Eerste span het met rustyd 1-0 voorgeloop. In die tweede helfde het die Vossies nog ‘n doel aan geteken. Frikkie Meyer het terug geveg en binne vier minute met twee doele van hul eie geantwoord. Maar, Ben Vorster se bokkies het koelkop gebly en die wendoel van die wedstryd in die 58ste minuut aangeteken. Hul drie doele is deur Zanel Steenkamp, Deané Toerien en Stephanie Nagel beklink. Die spanne wat gelykop gespeel het was die Tweede span, die O/15A en die O/14B spanne. Die O/16B span het ook hul wedstryd gewen met ‘n telling van 4-0. Die volgende hokkie wedstryde is die naweek by Ben Vorster teen Hoërskool Klerksdorp.

In what was arguably one of the most anticipated clashes in the local cricket league, the Nashua Aces squared off against long-time rivals, The Eagles. The grudge match took place this weekend in Polokwane in front of a good supporter-contingent. Earlier in the season the Nashua Aces were stumped by defeat against The Eagles, which translated into them seeking retribution. After winning the toss, the Aces elected to field first and sent the Eagles to the stumps. What followed during the next 44 overs was a devastating bowling attack which saw the birds returning to their coop with 236 runs and not a single wicket in hand. With their feathers sufficiently ruffled, the birds took to the field and threw their best bowlers at the Nashua batsmen who returned the favour with a number

of impressive boundaries. Aces stalwart, Armand Pansegrouw held his own under fire and raked in 122 runs off just 107 balls which later earned him the Man of the Match. Nashua Aces made good on their promise to restore balance to the Ovalverse and won the match in the 37th over with an impressive six wickets in hand. The Nashua Aces are proudly sponsored by Nashua Polokwane which has significantly improved the team’s support structure and overall performance. With the new season waiting, this team is sure to make an impact on the local circuit. — Joe Dreyer Photos: GKT SportPics

The XTERRA triathlon is known to be one of the fiercest triathlon events and one of Stanford Lake’s very own Grade 10 pupils, Lia Revelas, seized the first

place titled in her age group category, which took place in Grabouw. The Fedhealth XTERRA Grabouw, which took place the weekend of February, is the big-

gest XTERRA event in the world, and if Revelas is already claiming first prize in her category, one can assume a very promising future for this triathlon star.

Lowveld sent packing Frans du Toit High school in Phalaborwa played host to the rugby and netball teams from Nelspruit when they faced off against Lowveld High over the weekend. This was part of the Lebombo League series. The visitors had an uphill battle from the start against the much better prepared Fransies who put pedal to the medal from the word go. On the netball courts the Fransies won seven of their eight games convincingly, with only the Second team suffering a 3-9 defeat. The u/14A and B-teams won their games 19-11 and 16-4 respectively to set the bar for the u/14C girls who managed a 12-9 victory. The u/15A and B-teams demolished their opponents with scores of 17-1 and 29-1 respectively followed by a 23-3 win for the u/16A-team. It rained goals in the Fransie camp when the First team girls clashed later that afternoon and the Girls in Blue walked away with a 44-20 win over the visitors. Only one match was played on the hockey field. It was a tough game between the two u/16 Girls’ teams which ended in a goalless draw. The rugby fields were ablaze with action when the hosts beat their Mpumalanga visitors in all but one encounter on the day. The u/14 and u/15-teams each chalked up great wins with 20-12 and 36-7 respectively. The flagship u/16-squad continued the onslaught and sent Lowveld back to the locker rooms

with a 48-0 defeat. The main event of the day was the First team clash between arguably two of the most equally matched teams this year. It was a nail biting game with both teams taking the lead and then giving it away through both halves. In the end however, it was the Fransie captain who hoisted his hands in victory with a 24-23 win. — Joe Dreyer
