Chisipite And Falcon Crowned Champions

Falcon College and Chisipite Senior School claimed the Crusaders and Players Shield respectively at St John’s College on Sunday afternoon. The two-day fest was co-hosted by Chisipite Senior School and St John’s College.

The festival is the oldest school festival in Zimbabwe, having run every year since 1937. Prince Edward has won the shield a total of 28 times but they were not part of this year’s festival as they failed to make the cut in the preliminary tournaments. For the boys Christian Brother’s College was placed sixth behind Peterhouse Boys who were in fifth and St George’s College were fourth. The hosts, St John’s were in third place while Hellenic Academy was second. In the girls category, an invitational team was in fourth place. Hellenic Girls were placed second ahead of Girls College.

Giovanni Fargnoli of Falcon College was awarded the player of the tournament award while Joey Beare of Chisipite Senior School claimed the girls prize.
