De La Salle Holy Cross College play at KZN cricket festival

The De La Salle Holy Cross College girls cricket team who recently took part in the Vryheid Girls Cricket Festival in KwaZulu-Natal.

The girl’s cricket team at De La Salle Holy Cross College were fortunate enough to tour KwaZulu-Natal.

The second annual Vryheid Girls Cricket Festival was hosted recently in KwaZulu-Natal and Victory Park’s very own De La Salle girls’ cricket team was invited to participate. Fifteen learners from the school dived into the cricket action between 4 and 6 October.

At the festival, De La Salle’s girls took on and beat Vryheid, Felixton and the Zululand Hub. Tayla Vester, one of the team’s players, believes their attitude going into the tournament resulted in them winning all their matches. She said, “Our college motto was lived up to by all players with the other teams and staff members complimenting us on our players’ conduct and community spirit.”

The team is a combination of girls who have played the sport for years and some, only for weeks. Regardless of the length of time individual players have played the sport, the key characteristic between them is their determination to learn and succeed. Every player contributed in all aspects of the game.

At the festival, they also had the opportunity to play a match in mixed teams to support those living with breast cancer. The cricket field was filled with girls in bright pink cricket uniforms, bringing awareness of the disease that affects millions across the world.

The experience was an incredibly valuable one for the girls and they thanked their school for making it a reality. “Thank you to Mr Vernell and Ms Lawless for accompanying the team and wearing their shirts with pride; we had a great time,” said Vester.
