Hope School pupil Lihlombe Hemeni, 10, has been chosen as one of the Eastern Cape representatives in the National Cross Country Championships which takes place in Port Elizabeth next month.
Hemeni was chosen after she took part in the Mega District Cross Country competition in King William’s Town.
Two other Hope School pupils also took part: Esinako Mrwebi, 10, and Elam Meleni, 11.
Head of sports at Hope School Liesl Mortimer said Hemeni had won every inter-schools event this year in the girls’ U/10 division.
“Our U/7, U/8, and U/9 pupils have also done extremely well this season but there are no events at district championship-level for them to qualify in as they are too young.
“Most of them have been dominating the top three positions this season in their categories so we look forward to seeing more from them,” he added. as they age into the system,”said Mortimer.
