The Free State women’s hockey team, boasting nine players from the University of the Free State (UFS), and captained by Lesley Ann George, has won the B Section of the Interprovincial Women’s Hockey Tournament in East London when they beat Peninsula (WP B) 5-1 in the finals. With that performance the Kovsies ensured that the Free State will participate in the A Section next year.

With 22 goals, Hettie Oosthuizen was the top goal-shooter at the tournament. She was included in the coming SA Hockey practice group together with Nicole Kemp.

More news are that Lesley Ann George, the Free State and Kovsies’ captain has been included in the Protea team that will participate in the Commonwealth Games in India later this year.

Other Kovsies who were also part of the extremely successful Free State team were: Christine Roos, Careau Nel, Jonelka Swanepoel, Felishia Shongwe, Orpah Pretorius and Berne van Wyk. Elsie Coetzer, Kovsies’ coach, was in charge of the successful Free State team.
