The Diocesan School for Girls (DSG) hosted another successful Dave Hodgson Squash Festival over the weekend of 15-17 February, with teams visiting Makhanda (Grahamstown) from Collegiate Girls’ High School, Clarendon High School and Queenstown Girls’ High School, as well as an Invitational team, with Kingswood College also taking part in the local festival.
There was some wonderful squash on display, especially when the top two rated schools in the country were involved – Queenstown GHS (1) and Clarendon (2). In their match up, Clarendon upset the odds to win the game in a very exciting encounter, as GHS have been ranked as the number one school in the country for a number of years. This is a result GHS will be looking to set right in May when the two teams meet again.
DSG had a good time on the courts, beating both Collegiate and the Invitational Team, before suffering a narrow defeat to Kingswood, in another high quality encounter which went down to the wire.
