Young squash star honoured

HARARE - Blessing Muhwati’s star continued to rise following an impressive season that saw him land the Player of the Year award at the Zimbabwe Schools Squash awards ceremony held in Harare on Sunday.

The Prince Edward School pupil has been at the top of his game in a season decorated by an appearance at the British Junior Championships in Sheffield, England.

Apart from that, he won the Mashonaland and Zimbabwe Junior Championships titles.

He also claimed the Mashonaland Men's First league as well as the Zimbabwe Men's Closed Championship.

Meanwhile, Prince Edward School were rewarded for coming first in the Zimbabwe Schools squash league which saw St George’s College coming second and St John’s College closing in on third place.

Peterhouse College and Hellenic landed fourth and fifth places respectively.

In other prizes, St John’s College were honoured for winning the Second League that saw Watershed College A taking runner up position.

The Third League was won by Peterhouse Girls A, who were closely followed by Peterhouse Boys C.

Eaglesvale Senior School were the Fourth League winners with Churchill Boys A claiming runner up position.

Hellenic C team won the Fifth League whilst Eaglesvale B team were the runner ups.

Dominican Convent’s C team won the Sixth League.

Lee Hodgeson of Hellenic was awarded with the Coach of the Year award for the organisation of her teams.

Zimbabwe Schools Squash league chairperson Michael Chingwaro congratulated the players and appealed to them to desist from switching from first team to the lower teams in a hope of winning as this amounts to cheating.

Chigwaro, who doubles as the coach of Prince Edward School, however, said he was happy that the number of squash teams is increasing each year.
