UCT beat Stellenbosch University and the Cape Peninsula University of Technology in a Western Cape squash tournament (the University of the Western Cape didn't send a team) hosted in Stellenbosch at the start of May. After seeing off CPUT quite comfortably by 24-0, the tournament all came down to the final clash, in which the UCT first side faced off against the Maties first side. The teams tied at 10-10 going into the final of their six matches. (Playing in a six-a-side format, a team wins a point for every game/set won in a clash, plus the winning team earns a bonus point for every match won.) A 3-1 win in that deciding match for Jeanae Dumas took UCT ahead 13-11, and the three bonus points for matches in the final game took the score to 16-11, and won UCT the competition. UCT's now earned the right to represent Western Province in an abbreviated - blame that on the Soccer World Cup - University Sports South Africa national squash tournament, which it hopes to host in September.

UCT's Laura Barrett and Kim Kay have earned places in the women's national water polo team to take part in the World League Champs in France and Greece from 6 to 21 June. "The competition is extremely stiff and we are still developing as a team, so we have a big challenge going in there," says Barrett.
