The Eastern Cape Basketball Championship was a great success and we would like to thank St Andrew’s College for offering their courts for us to use.

11 boys teams and 6 girls teams participated in this year’s event. As a school, we entered three teams, our 1st teams for boys and girls and our U16 girls team.

Our boys team lost to Grey High 28-30 in a nail-biting semi final which had the attributes of the championship final. Our 1st team girls lost to DSG 1st team in the semi final as well.

Our U16 team lost two games and won one which was very encouraging.

This year saw Dale College participate for the first time in the tournament and their team won the most disciplined team award.

The coach from Mthatha High, Mr Kamota got the coach of the tournament award.

The tournament was won by SAC in the boys section and DSG in the girls section. The runners up were Grey and DSG 2nd respectively.

Most of the individual awards were scooped by the SAC and DSG teams with our own Luzuko Mahlati making the all stars team for the boys and Mwaka Machila making all stars team for the girls.
