VUT Karate team
The end of the year was a busy one for the VUT Sports Department whose members shone at various tournaments.
At the South African Dance Awards, held in Ekhuruleni in November, VUT’s Karabo Morake walked away with the award for Best Solo Latin dance while our dance couple won the South African Dance Foundation award. Both the titles were announced at the Kempton Park Civic Centre.
Karate also had its turn in the limelight when VUT students won the Novice Annual Karate Tournament, organised by African Full Contact Karate Organisation at Abram Hlophe Primary School in Katlehong.
Participants came from Kethorus, Sebokeng, Tembisa, Alberton, Daveyton and VUT. VUT karate students won first position in intermediate kata including yellow belt, third position in blue belt, third position in advanced kata, second place in the male’s development kata and third position in the men’s intermediate division.
The Volleyball ladies’ team also did their utmost best and took second position in the Club Champs hosted by University of Kwa-Zulu Natal (UKZN). This made them eligible to qualify and play the Zone VI Club Champs in Namibia from 10-17 Dec 2016.
VUT Sports department is looking forward to the year 2017 which started with being voted in the top seven for the Varsity Cheerleading Championships to be hosted by SAMCA (South African Majorette and Cheerleading Association).
