Kearsney College’s U14A hoopsters end season unbeaten

2014-11-20 00:00

KEARSNEY College’s U14A basketball team can walk tall after seeing through their season unbeaten.

It was a stout effort by a group of keen, passionate players, who played six matches in the first term and eight in terms three and four.

They were up against some respected opposition, seeing off the likes of Hilton, Michaelhouse, Glenwood, College and Westville Boys’ High among others.

Coach Nkosi Buthelezi was justifiably a proud man, having set the foundation for the players to progress through to the senior teams in coming years.

“I have to thank the boys for their tremendous work ethic,” he said. “They showed respect for themselves and the team through working hard and practising the skills that made this a team and season to remember.

“The side have been a great example of teamwork and I am proud of their achievement.”

Kearsney’s MIC of basketball, Myles Delport, said many of the players in the all-conquering team had started playing the sport at primary school.

“They started at schools like Highbury and Pelham,” he said. “Credit to the boys in working in the off-season and in their own time to improve their skills and shooting. They used our first team as a role model and emulated them in taking the game seriously.”
