Gert Sibande District Athletics
The athletes who represented Alpha and Omega School

On Saturday, 29 February, six of our top athletes, who were selected at regional level, represented our school at the Gert Sibande District Athletics held in Secunda.

With almost 40 schools participating at this event, the athletes surely had to be mentally determined and in peak physical condition for this districts athletics event.

Retu Sharker, Avela Kunene, Dineo Mchuchu, Sphelele Bhengu, Luyanda Radebe and Sibahle Mtshali, braved the early morning rains to participate in the qualifying heats. Retu Shaker qualified for the finals and ran her last race at 16:00 on Saturday afternoon. She placed 5th overall in the 200m Girls U/13.

The school would like to thank Miss Anya Ray, Sport Committee Director, for all the mentorship, planning and execution during the district athletics season. A most successful season indeed.
