Edgewood Campus Wins KZN University Soccer Championships
UKZN’s Edgewood campus soccer team was crowned KwaZulu-Natal university champions at the recent University Sport South Africa league.
An Edgewood player, Mr Tebogo Hlao, said: ‘We competed against tough opponents including teams from UKZN’s Pieternmaritzburg, Westville, and Howard College campuses as well as DUT Durban, DUT Midlands, Unizulu and MUT but managed to finish as overall winners. It wasn’t easy but hard work, determination and sacrifices from both players and management gave us the result,’ said Hlao.
Players acknowledged the coach, Mr Zweli Sapula, for his good recruitment strategy that has kept the team strong since 2012. ‘When good players graduate and leave, replacements are always there to take over. Our team contains both graduate and postgraduate students,’ said Hlao.
Edgewood will represent UKZN and KwaZulu-Natal at the USSA National Championships in Bloemfontein later this month.
