The SPAR Madibaz team are firmly focused on reaching the Varsity Netball semifinals when the next round of matches in the competition takes place this weekend.
After three wins and a loss, Madibaz are fourth on the log and coach Lana Krige said they were ready to tackle the hurdles which lay ahead.
“We are a really tight group of friends who are enjoying the tournament,” she said.
“When we sort out the mistakes caused by not being patient enough it is going to be a very good thing to watch.”
Krige drew many positives from the opening matches, even from their loss on Monday to UP-Tuks.
“This team has embarked on a very special journey,” she said. “Tuks was a great experience for us all and everyone in the camp is still very determined.”
The Madibaz squad now enter a testing phase of the competition as they come up against some of the leading teams.
They complete their programme on September 24 against the third-placed Stellenbosch outfit.
Krige was undaunted by the prospect.
“Madibaz can take any team on any day,” she said. “We have our own style of play and we are learning to believe in it.”
She added that their focus would remain on being a cohesive unit.
“If everyone is not doing their part, we all lose. That is why we play, to help our friend next to us because in the next quarter I might need help against my opponent.
“This year, Madibaz is all about giving it your all and being the best you can be.”
