Wednesday, 7 September 2016, saw the ladies and gents of the Longfellow residence of the North-West University Vaal Triangle Campus (NWU Vaal) bringing out their sporty side in both Cricket and Netball! Though they may not have won either of their games; considering that the teams have only been together for around two weeks; still shows that they were determined to play the game to the best of their abilities!

A run by any other name… (Probably means something else)

With the Cricket game, the Longfellow students (who have only been a team for two weeks) saw themselves playing against Hoërskool Vanderbijlpark. This was their first ever game, as a T10 prep for that coming weekend. While Hoërskool Vanderbijlpark won by three runs; the Longfellow team did their best, and now are prepared for any further games that will come at them!

Final Score:
Longfellow – 48/6
Hoërskool Vanderbijlpark – 51/3


She shoots… She scores! (While looking fabulous)

The ladies also showed their sporty-ness on the day with a social game against fellow University friends Maties (Stellenbosch University). Also a first for the team, the game was held at the Indoor Arena at Vanderbijlpark Action Sports. While there may have been tears in the eyes of some, and joy in others… By the end of the game there was smiles all around, as both teams enjoyed a great friendly match.

Final Score:
Longfellow – 17
Maties – 24


You can’t win them all, BUT you also can’t lose them all! Congrats to all the ladies and gens from Longfellow, as well as their respective opponents! Longfellow, know that we are proud of you either way, and we will all be watching  and waiting for more info on your future games!
