Pretoria High Schools league kicks off

By on April 26, 2008 in High School

The Pretoria League begins in earnest this term with the defending champions in all divisions facing stiff competition to keep their titles. Some of the schools have been playing basketball since the beginning of the year, taking part in preseason friendly games and tournaments all over the country so expect them to come out of the blocks firing on all cylinders.


In the Girls open, it comes down to another battle down the stretch between The Glen High school and Pretoria High School for Girls, with the rest playing catch up. These 2 great rivals have already met in the AISJ tournament and if it’s any indication of who will win the league, then your guess is as good as mine. The Glen High School opens their title defense against Hillview while in the other pool, Pretoria High School for Girls play against Prestige.

In the Under16 Girls division, Pretoria Girls High School is facing an uphill battle to keep the crown they have had for the past few years. The PHSG class of 2008 has a lot to live up to and they are going to be pushed all the way by last year’s finalists DSG who have their own ambitions to be champions. Watch out for The Glen High school team that won the under14 section last year, they have a year of basketball in their favour.

At under14 section, this is the rookie bunch, new to the game and difficult to predict. Last year, The Glen High School won it with an entertaining game against DSG who were playing at home. But with a new year, the work begins from scratch as the coaches assess the potential on their hands.Look out for the usual suspects, PHSG, DSG and The Glen.
