CPUT athletes raring to go

CHAMPIONS: CPUT students will compete in the University Sport South Africa (USSA) winter tournament next week.

Next week thousands of students will gather at universities across the county to compete in the University Sport South Africa (USSA) winter tournament.

The USSA winter tournament is the top sporting event in the higher education sector and it is where the champions are crowned.

And this year, CPUT athletes have their eyes set on gold.

Sports Coordinator at the Cape Town campus, Annelie Swarts says a large number of CPUT students are participating in next week’s events.

The rugby teams’ skills will be put to test on the fields at the University of Witwatersrand, while the hockey team will play their matches at the University of Johannesburg.

Students will also show-off their surfing skills at Victoria Bay near George, while the Cats basketball team will compete in Port Elizabeth at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University.

Closer to home, the netball team will play their matches at Stellenbosch University while our cyclists will have home advantage with CPUT hosting the USSA Cycling Tournament at the Wellington Campus.

But this year all eyes are on the CPUT rugby team. The team’s performance at the tournament will be a key factor in determining whether they will qualify to compete in the 2013 Varsity Cup.

Sports Coordinator at the Wellington Campus Tyrone Africa says the team is well prepared for next week’s event and plan to come out tops.
