The University of Stellenbosch was home to the third leg of the exhilarating Varsity Athletics programme, which took place on Tuesday night at the Coetzenberg Athletics Stadium. Last week’s nail biting atmosphere had clearly moved to the Cape, as the crowd continued the non stop supporting which has come to be synonymous with Varisty Athletics events.
The University of Pretoria, popularly known as the Tuks, came out strongly as the overall winner once again, giving them a clean sweep so far in this year’s programme.
North West University dominated the mens track events, taking three of the five titles on offer namely the 400m huddles, 800m and 5000m. An upset in the 400m huddles saw NWU’s Hardus Maritz cross the finish line first beating the race favorite. Tuks Le Roux Hannan.
The final leg of the Varsity Sports Athletics programme is sure to bring another night of nail biting action. This will take place at the University of Pretoria on 28 April. The games will be broadcast on cable pay channel Supersport 10.
