This week’s Absolute Athlete of The Week mention goes to Arundel School’s Catherine Lavers.
As captain of the Arundel 1st XI hockey side, Lavers led her team to a well orchestrated 4-1 victory over Girls College on Saturday in a Harare.
The skipper had great vision in the attacking third setting up Gugu Sibanda to put her team ahead in front of goal. To add to her already stellar performance, Lavers also shot one past the Girls College goalie to add to her team’s goal account.
A nasty bruise on the left knee was not enough to keep Lavers down as she also tracked back to defend her team’s goal.
Well done Kate.
