Honours Citation – Kendal Rose – Athletics

Kendal Rose of Diocesan School for Girls has an undeniable talent and passion for running. Ever since her arrival at DSG she has stood head and shoulders above her competitors on the track and on the road.

Besides her countless winning performances at DSG sports days and cross country events and her many Victrix awards, Kendal has also captained the DSG Athletics team for the last two years.

Kendal also has competed regularly on a provincial and national stage, and she has represented Eastern Province Athletics at both track and cross country. In Grade 11 she ran in the South African Athletics Championships where she finished 7th in the 3000m in her age group, and in August this year, she competed in the South African Cross Country Championships where she placed 25th in the country. Given the strength and depth of athletics and cross country in South Africa, her achievements as an athlete through the past few years are nothing short of brilliant.

Her determination and commitment to athletics is remarkable, and Kendal has been a true champion of her sport and a wonderful ambassador for DSG.

We are thrilled to be making a most deserved award of Athletics Honours to Kendal Rose.
