Congratulations to our U16 basketball team on winning the final at our U16 Basketball Tournament! We hosted a total of 26 teams from South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, Swaziland, and Zimbabwe to participate in a series of competitive basketball games from 23 - 25 February 2018.

Our U16s team played a tough final game against a strong team from Michaelhouse, but succeeded in winning the game. The final score was St Stithians 53 – 47 Michaelhouse.

Congratulations to Nyasha Gumbo who was named tournament MVP, and to Thabani Maguranyanga who was named in the All Star team!

I wish to thank all the sponsors who have given so generously, the organising committee, the coaches for their commitment to all the young players in their charge, as well as to the parents and staff for their support and to the players themselves for all their hard work and training for this event.

Our hope is that the success of this tournament may ensure that it becomes a permanent fixture in our sporting calendar.
