The Kovsie men’s and women’s hockey teams have positive expectations for the University Sport South Africa (USSA) national student tournament.

The USSA championships were hosted by the University of the Free State (UFS) from 2 to 6 July 2018. This year’s championships will have 45 competing teams and will thus be the biggest ever USSA hockey tournament.

For the female squad to qualify for the 2019 Varsity Sports tournament, they have to secure a spot among the top-seven teams. In order to get back into the A section, the Kovsie men’s team must win their tournament. 

The matches are scheduled to take place on the UFS Bloemfontein Campus astro fields.

The UFS women’s team, captained by Antonet Louw, is set to play on Monday at 15:35 against Nelson Mandela University (NMU); on Tuesday at 17:00 against the University of Johannesburg (UJ); and on Wednesday at 18:25 against North-West University (NWU). The play-off matches will take place on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.

The men’s team, with Cheslyn Neethling as captain, will play on Monday at 17:00 against the Central University of Technology; on Tuesday at 15:35 against the Tswane University of Technology; on Wednesday at 17:00 against the Vaal University of Technology; on Thursday at 18:25 against the University of KwaZulu-Natal; and on Friday at 15:35 against Rhodes University.

The highlight of the annual arts and culture calendar, Stagedoor 2014, was a huge success, with Akasia and Veritas announced as the winners. More talent was also evident at Sonnedou and Wag-‘n-Bietjie, achieving second and third place in the women’s residence division respectively.

In the division for men’s residences, Vishuis was in second place and Villa Bravado in third place.

This year’s theme for the 2014 McDonald’s Stagedoor Finals was ‘Aint nobody got time for that’. The packed Odeion and Kovsie Church were more than enough evidence that everybody has time for singing. Tonderai Chiyindiko, Senior Officer at Arts and Culture: Student Life and Leadership, said that Stagedoor is a perfect example of the diversity of our cultural expression on campus.

Stagedoor is a fun-filled music-theatre competition between campus and city residences where students compete earlier on in the week in rotation rounds, before six to seven residences go through to the finals where they compete for the first place.
