Poly Wild Cats - Southern Region Mo626 Champions
Wildcats Captain Robert Matambo, recalled that the final game which they played against Malawi College of Accountancy (MCA) the boys did not play well like they normally do. This did not hinder their prospects of maintaining the unbeaten record by winning 71-49 baskets.
Similarly, the female Wild cats also won their final match against MCA with 34-11 baskets.
“This victory has come as a result of good team chemistry and hard work for both teams,” Matambo said.
He further thanked the Polytechnic Administration for the support rendered to them in all home and away games. The teams were provided with transport, food and accommodation throughout the tournament.
Wildcats’ shooting guard Don Gama, expressed his excitement but continued to say that he wishes to see the team work extra hard not only in this competition but also in the Southern Region basketball league.
“Our morale and determination is unquestionable, we are stopping at nothing until we win both the league and the Mo626 national title,” Gama said.
A part time coach for Wild cats Nsimenye Mwafongo, commended the teams for the job well done. He further encouraged them to abide by their hard working spirit, teamwork, discipline above all, be courageous and determined.
Two teams from each region qualify to the round of elite eight. This means the WildCats have to win in this round in order to reach the national finals.
