PE hosts basketball tourney

HARARE - Prince Edward High School is set to host 40 schools during a basketball tournament this weekend.

Some of the participating schools include Churchill, St John’s College, St George’s College, Peterhouse College, Watershed College, Westridge, CBC, Milton, Lomagundi College and Gateway.

Heritage, Girls High, Petra, Convert (Bulawayo), Kyle, Northlea, Conway College, Royal College, Goromonzi, Marlborough, Mount Pleasant, Dzivaresekwa 2, Mazowe, Chinhoyi and Mufakose 2 are the other participating schools.

PE teacher-in-charge of basketball Sledge Chinyoka said preparations to host the event are going on well and he is confident that they will put on a good show.

“We have laid the groundwork for what will be a tournament to remember and as for our expectations as the hosts, we are looking to go all the way into the final,” Chinyoka told the Daily News yesterday.

“It is the biggest basketball tournament in the country and all the best basketball playing schools get to meet hence it is rich in both quality and quantity.

“The tournament which began with few schools has grown into a formidable basketball tournament attracting many schools from across the country.

“The winners will walk away with medals and shields.”

Chinyoka said there is a lot of promising talent among the young players and stressed the need to identify the juniors from an early age.

“From my experience with Zimbabwe basketball junior players, there is potential in the young players, it is only a matter of exposing the players to more international and local tournaments,” he said,” added Chinyoka.

Churchill are the defending champions in the boys category while Girls High won the last year title in the girls’ section and the two will be hoping to continue with their dominance at the event.
