Champions! Tuks's netball team.
TuksNetball produced the first champion at the inaugural Sun City Tournament held from 27 April to 2 May.
Tuks was one of five universities taking part, the other four being Pukke, Kovsies, Maties and UJ.
Tuks 1 won four of their five games. The team had an excellent tournament and eventually won by goal averages (goals for divided by goals against) after Tuks, Pukke and Kovsies all lost one match.
Tuks were crowned champions because of the great scores they put up during the tournament.
The team will now be preparing for the USSA Tournament in July.
The triumphed Tuks team was:
Yolandi Badenhorst, Annemarie Frost, Eldene Bischoff, Erin Burger, Vasta Mhlonga, Rozanne Naidoo, Amanda Mynhardt,Chantelle du Plessis, Charisa Beukes, Nicola Pretoruis, Chanel Diesel. Coach: Elize Kotze. Manager: Jenny v Dyk. Physio: Pieter du Plessis.
