Basketball season ends strong

The Summer Splash Impala League series came to an end last Saturday when Ganizani Tambo’s Lakers team won a closely contested encounter against Ntsikayethu Dywili’s Nets side. The Lakers won 34 – 30 to be crowned the overall Series winners.

In a tough year we have just heard, these internal organised matches provided the much-needed game time to the Basketballers. Together with their teammates, star players Ifeoluwa Ogunniyi, Mbulelo Mkosi, Sean Ruwodo and Boinelo Tapela dished out entertainment to their Basketball followers every Saturday morning.

Mischa Mulira, Chirak Kawala and Ntsika Mduba caught the coaches’ eye by displaying good all-round Basketball through-out the series. The trio were particularly impressivein their defensive play. The talent shown by these junior players augurs well for College Basketball in the season ahead. All high-profile tournaments will be jam packed in the Easter Term.

As we plan for the ever changing COVID circumstances, we also think of preserving the opportunities that playing sports with their peers create for the boys, and at the same time how to make sure that any decision we make is grounded in medical science.

I look forward to the new year!
