Story by Anashe Murombedzi

THE stage is set for the 2024 Premier Netball League after the full complement of teams was confirmed at the weekend.

This comes after Destiny Queens, Seven Flames, Hustlers, and Harare Polytechnic were promoted into the topflight which gets underway next month.

It was action galore at the Mbare Netball Complex in Harare as 20 teams from the Division One netball leagues battled for a top-four finish to earn promotion into the topflight netball league.

Destiny Queens finished top of the pile after winning all their five matches at the interprovincial tournament held over the weekend.

They were joined by Seven Flames, Hustlers Queens, and Harare Polytechnic who completed the top four.

The PNL is expected to get underway next month.

Away from netball, the Bonaqua Africa Triathlon Cup took centre stage in Nyanga on Saturday.

Zimbabwe’s representative in the elite women’s event Andie Kuipers gave it her all to finish fifth in one hour, 19 minutes, and 31 seconds.

Kulpers was the first African triathlete to cross the finishing line which granted her valuable Olympic qualification points.

The overall winner of the race was Ireland’s Elizabeth Carr followed by Marit Van Den Berg of the Netherlands, while Antoanela Manac of Romania settled for bronze.

The elite men’s race was clinched by Ayan Beisenbayev of Kazakhstan, while South Africa bagged the honours in the junior men and women categories.

Shifting to cricket, the Logan Cup ended on a high note with Mountaineers claiming the title for the fifth time.

Southern Rocks initially took control of the table with 122 points, but their hopes were dashed by perennial campaigners Mountaineers in the last round.

Mountaineers edged Eagles by an innings and 123 runs inside three days thereby outshining the fellow title contenders Rocks by eight points.
