HARARE school, Girls’ High basketball team clinched the I Believe Breast Cancer Under-20 girls’ basketball tournament hosted by Girls College in Bulawayo on Saturday.
The Harare school beat Nkulumane High 22-12 in the final to claim the glory in the competition which saw seven schools taking part.
Speaking on behalf of the organisers I Believe Sports Academy, former basketball player Allan Mavhunga said the tournament went well although other schools could not turn up due to examination preparations.
“The tournament went well, although five schools could not make it, I think the reason was the ‘O’ and ‘A’ level exams preparation.”
Girls’ College, Girls’ High, Evelyn, Ihlathi, Nkulumane, Usher and Founders participated in the tournament.
Nkulumane made their way to the final after humiliating Usher 42-12 while Girls’ High dismissed Ihlathi 28-8.
