The Janus Robberts Invitational Athletics meet took place on Friday, 25 January at Pietersburg Hoërskool.
The spotlight was on the athletics team from Merensky High School when Elandri Janse van Rensburg scored 1200 on the ABSA table (the highest possible score) with her astounding javelin distance of 39.89m for girls u14. She deservedly held the Junior Victrix Ludorum trophy high.
The Plasies reaped 15 gold, 17 silver and 42 bronze medals, with the girls’ team claming an overall second place.
On Saturday, 2 February, Plasiepark will come alive with athletes from Merensky, PHS, Frans du Toit, HTS Tom Naudé and Louis Trichardt at the MHS Invitational meet. Keep a close eye on Merensky’s social media for a complete programme.
