Kyle Victorious At Watershed Sprints

A great team effort saw Kyle College claim top spot in glorious sunshine at this year’s edition of Watershed College sprints on Saturday (February 8) afternoon. The event which was attended by eight schools went on well and ran on time. Marondera High School however, turned up late missing the first 24 of the 48 events. Eaglesvale enjoyed a good run over the shorter distances before Kyle College dethroned them after the 800m races, which required more depth from the various teams and the Masvingo boys and girls had just that.
