Ramogotsi Primary Girls have done it again; the girls were last week crowned this year‘s Under 13 Cricket League Champions.
Ramogotsi Girls went into championship battle as the defending champions after scooping the title for the first time last year when the Under 13 girls’ slot was first introduced.
The Under 13 league finals, held on Wednesday at the Botswana Cricket Association (BCA) grounds, were between Ramogotsi Primary and rival Mojadife Primary school.
Ramogotsi scooped the championship by scoring 91 runs for 2 wickets in 15 overs against Mojadife’s 71 runs for 3 wickets in 15 overs.
Both schools have had an impressive record within the developmental cricket programme since its inception in 2007.
Mojadife boys have been champions of the Under 13 league for two consecutive years and the school has also won this year’s Under 11 Boys league.
After the match, there was a prize giving ceremony where awards were given for the most impressive players during the finals and during the duration of the tournament as a whole.
For the finals, Ramogotsi players were voted most impressive and took all the awards.
Katlego Busi was chosen best player of the game while best batsman went to Leeme Masilo, best fielder went to Kutlo Mantou and Mimi Ramafifi walked away with the best bowler title.
A player to watch out for, Busi was also given an award for player of the tournament, an award she was no stranger to as she had won it for last year’s tournament as well.
The team, which was given an award for best spirit of the game, was Notwane Primary School while Itumeleng Phelaphela of Mojadife was named the emerging player of the tournament.
Meanwhile, the BCA recently sent off it’s Under 14 Boys’ squad to the Eastern Junior Club Cricket Association (EJCCA) mini-cricket festival held in Benoni South-Africa. The festival is for Under 14 southern African teams.
The boys are expected back next week.
