Highway Mail's Primary School SPAR Star (February 2022)
08 March 2022
St Mary’s DSG, Kloof’s primary school SPAR Star of the month is Grade 6 learner, Leago Dube for her outstanding achievement in Tennis.
Leago was first introduced to the game by her older sister when she was still in pre-primary school and began lessons. By the time she started Grade R at St Mary’s, she was already very advanced for her age. Now in Grade 6, she is currently being coached privately. During Leago’s spare time she also enjoys swimming, running, gymnastics, soccer and playing the drums!
In January 2022, Leago attended the Grand Prix Nelspruit Tournament and placed 5th in the U12 finals. At the beginning of February she participated in the KZN Mini 1 Tournament at the Westridge Stadium where she placed 2nd in the U12 singles final. In March she has been invited to play in the prestigious Junior Nationals in Bloemfontein. The top U12 players in the country have been invited and Leago is currently placed in the top 30. The final results will determine the South African team for 2022! “All the best for the tournament Leago, we are behind you every step of the way!” says the school’s Senior Primary Sports Co-ordinator, Kelly Reed.
