2012 saw again 10 Maties teams representing the University in the Western Province leagues.
All the Maties teams performed at their best with pleasing results in the various leagues. Out of 10 teams only 2 finished in the bottom half of the league with the Maties Ladies winning the title in the Grand Challenge League and the Ladies US III and Men US IV also winning their respective league. The Maties Men finished third in the Grand Challenge League with the Mens US III finishing second in their league.
Maties Hockey was well represented at provincial and National level. 43 Club members represented Maties at provincial level with 6 maties in the womens senior team and 6 Maties in the Men’s senior team. The level of professionalism in the club was once again highlighted as 13 Maties were selected for various national teams throughout the year. The high-light being Jacques le Roux and Kathleen Taylor being included in the teams participating in the Olympic Games in London 2012.
These are just a few of the highlights from 2012. This year has once again been an excellent year for the players and staff of the Maties Hockey Club.
