UFS Hockey makes history
2014-03-05

 
Tanya Britz and Jaco Fourie

For the first time in the history of the University of the Free State (UFS), two members of the Kovsie Hockey Club have been selected for the National hockey teams. Tanya Britz and Jaco Fourie have been included in the Protea women’s and men’s teams respectively. According to Frans van der Watt, Sports Manager: Hockey in the division KovsieSport, this is a first for the university, as well as the Free State.

Both of these outstanding achievers will represent our university as well as our country in Argentina at the end of the month. During this five-test series, the Protea teams will be showing their grit against Argentina – currently second on the world ranking list. The matches will be played in Mar del Plata from 22 to 28 February 2014.

Britz already tasted the sweetness of success when the Protea women’s team beat the Scots in a recent test series in Pretoria.
