MSU dominates ZUSA games
MIDLANDS State University (MSU) dominated the Zimbabwe University Sports Association (ZUSA) cluster 2 games held at the institution in Gweru over the weekend. The university had earlier won the track and field competition at White City Stadium in Bulawayo on Friday. MSU scooped 23 gold, 17 silver and 17 bronze medals. University of Zimbabwe (UZ) was a distant second with 13 gold, eight silver and three bronze medals, while Great Zimbabwe University were third with five gold, 12 silver and eight bronze medals.

Nust were fifth with three gold, eight silver and seven bronze medals, while Lupane State University could only manage two gold, one silver and three bronze.

ZUSA’s games are divided into three clusters to avert logistical challenges which have affected past events.

Cluster 1 consists of athletics and Cluster 2 comprises football, basketball, volleyball, handball, golf, karate and netball.

MSU dominated in basketball, volleyball, handball, karate, golf and women’s football, scooping gold in all these categories.

The Games’ local organising committee chairman James Muvirimi Chivivi said the level of competition was high.

“The games were very competitive and I salute all teams for putting up a good fight. I hope the competition we witnessed here transcends itself when we hold our Cluster 3 games in Mutare from 14-17 April,” said Chivivi.

Cluster 3 consists of cricket, hockey, rugby, chess, darts, pool, tennis and table tennis.
