Athletics at Maritzburg College
The athletes compete in all the ASA League meetings held in Durban during the season, as well as the Clover Top 8 Invitational meeting, the Grey College/Oranje Girls High Invitational meeting, the Menlo Park Invitational meeting and the Hilton College Invitational meetings which are held annually and where our athletes achieve excellent results! Our Awards are based on the ABSA Points scale.
At Maritzburg College, we have full inter-house athletics events too. Here our ten sporting houses compete in sprints, long-distance running, relays, shotput, discus, javelin, long jump, triple jump, high jump and tug-o-war. These are spirit-filled events with a high level of competition between the boys.
Athletics takes place during the 3rd term at Maritzburg College.
A number of high profile rugby players like Cedric Mkhize ( Natal Sharks), Peter Grant ( Stormers), Craig Burden ( Natal Sharks) and Chad Erskine (USA), represented College in athletics. In fact, Athletics Captain (2003), S Sishi, represented South Africa at the Beijing Olympic Games
