CBC Hockey has had a great sporting weekend: over Friday and Saturday, the First Team, the Skulls, convincingly won all their matches in League fixtures played at the Hockey Stadium, against Goldridge, South Easter College, Kyle College and Makakose High.
The full results were as follows:
CBC soccer played Midlands Christian College in the CHISZ Soccer League this weekend and won all their matches.
The U17s ended their match 1-0, while First Team, the Eagles, beat MCC 3-1.
Well done boys!
The CBC Hornets played a largely defensive game against another strong Falcon Mad Dogs side at Hartsfield on Saturday, as the sequence of photographs published below illustrate.
However what the 53-0 scoreline does not show is the renewed strength and determination of this year’s CBC First Team.
Final Score: Dragons 39 Hornets 17
In this weekend’s encounter with Harare rugby power house, the St George’s Dragons, the CBC Hornets demonstrated their zeal and passion to change things around this season…and although in the end the score line shows the Dragons in the lead, the team’s grit and determination was clearly evident, particularly in the second half.
In the first half the Dragons showed their intent to continue the dominance they have enjoyed over the Hornets for some years by grabbing the lead.
Many thanks to deVere (Pvt Ltd) for sponsoring the smart touring shirts for CBC’s First Team basketball, the Angels.
The Angels are proud to be associated with one of the world’s leading independent financial advisory organisations, with a footprint in over 100 countries. And, as two global brands, we have overlapping interests in the field of education: whereby CBC is one of the leading educational institutions in the country, deVere offers educational planning facilities, among other services.
The team was awarded the trophy by none other than the ZITF Guest of Honour, Togolese President, His Excellency Faure Essozimna Gnassingbe. Not only did the college take the trophy, but CBC Debate Team President, George Mhlanga, was also named Best Speaker.
CBC’s First Team Rugby, the Hornets, had a great start to the season on Friday, winning 36-6 against Plumtree in a tightly-contested curtain raiser to the President’s XV vs Steval Pumas match at Hartsfield.
It was a big day for CBC in more ways than one, with two old boys, Lawrence Cleminson and Bastien, playing on the President’s XV side.
CBC First Team basketball, the Angels, have ended the season on a high note, by taking silver in the annual Provincial Top Schools Tournament hosted by Northlea.
The Angels came close to victory in their very first game, losing to the defending champions, Milton, by only one point in the group stages. But they picked themselves up and beat Saint Columbus 39–17, qualifying for the quarter Finals. In the Quarter Finals the Angels rose to the occasion to face the host school and crowd favourites, Northlea, in the semi-finals round. It was a nail-biting encounter, with the game being decided in the dying minutes when Thokozani Dube and Davison Chivero scored a crucial clutch point to lead the team to victory.
CBC held its annual Inter–House Athletics competition on Saturday, with Andreans taking the house cup for the second year running.
The competition was extremely heated, particularly in the exciting relay events, and in the final tally the margin between first place, Andreans and second place, Georgians, was four points.
A couple of weeks ago, form one student, Andrew Price, played a piece at assembly called Allegretto. It was a stunning performance and has inspired many other boys to want to learn how to play the guitar.
The CBC Media Club interviewed Price and asked him about his interest in the guitar and how he’s found CBC so far.
The Music department is growing rapidly in terms of the number of people interested and those who are actively involved. It now has under it guitarists, keyboardists, drummers, vocalists, and marimba players. The commitment and hard work by members has gained them recognition both within CBC and outside. Thanks to the efforts of Mr. R. Fenwick, who is in charge of the band and is responsible for teaching the boys how to play various musical instruments, and the Music HOD, Mrs.T. Burns, who is overall in charge of the Music Department and trains the Choir and Marimba, the Music Department is headed for great things.
