Basketball ISSEA ended in early March with the persevering warthogs improving their basketball record from previous ISSEA tournaments. An ambitious team represented the school in Kampala seeking for gold on a hot dry land. Senior Tinotenda Gowero, Co-captain, was speaking in an interview to WW expressing her thoughts: “It definitely wasn’t our best ISSEA, but in terms of experience being and bonding with my team and getting to know everyone was the highlight of it.”

The girls’ Basketball team finished in 7th position out of 8 teams while the boys’ team finished in 6th position. “We defiantly could’ve done better; I know we didn’t play well”, said Gowero. Both teams fought hard to the end and deserve acknowledgements for impressing the school in foreign soil.

ISSEA was more than a tournament; it was a time for students to get to know each other and explore other parts of the world. The short stay in Kampala was long enough for the players to learn something new. When asked about her interesting moments Gowero smiled and confidently spoke: “My favourite part was when we had sushi that was the best! It was so good! I found it a little difficult doing school work and balancing it with basketball. Our mocks were the day we came back!! It was a little challenging for the seniors, but we survived.”

On behalf of WW and the school, well done to the ISSEA teams for their incredible efforts and commitments in the court. Speaking in a Warthogs’ World interview Sophomore Yann added that: “we played way better than last year, now we are more of a team and next year we will be even stronger”. Senior Jordyn Miller reinforced that: “the points were really close!”

Sport is ‘30% skill and 70% luck’! The Warthogs may not have had enough luck to win the tournament but they surely did have enough skill!
