SUPPORTERS came in their droves to watch PE Comets’ Sixth Annual Schools Basketball Tournament, which was a resounding success.

The tournament started at Raymond Mhlaba Indoor Sports Centre on January 23 and ended at Motherwell NU 5 Basketball Park on January 26.

The tournament was organised for u/16 boys, u/18 girls and u/18 boys.

The u/16 teams came from local schools Coselelani High, Khwezilomso Comprehensive High, Grey teams and St Andrews College from Grahamstown. There were only three u/18 girls’ teams, which came from Diocesan School for Girls, Kingswood College and WSSF.

The teams which took part in the u/18 boys’ category were St Andrews, Coselelani High, Lawson Brown High, Kingswood College from Grahamstown, PE Comets and Grey High.

In the u/16 boys’ category, the winners were Khwezi Lomso Comprehensive High.

The title went to DSG in the u/18 girls’ category, while the Kingswood College boys’ u/18 team dethroned the reigning champions, PE Comets.

The winners received trophies and gold medals.

PE Comets’ chairperson, Sibongile Fondini, thanked all the schools that participated in the tournament.

“The tournament ran with great success.

“I wish to take this opportunity to thank everyone within the club for their voluntary contribution in ensuring that the event was successful.”
