Coach Lana Krige said she was delighted with the team’s performances as they scored narrow wins on Sunday and Monday.
“Previously we would beat Kovsies [Free State] and then lose to Pukke [North-West], or it would be the other way round,” she said.
“So the big thing for me was that it happened back to back – in that sense it was really great.”
The Nelson Mandela University outfit are third on the log, but they are not yet assured of a place in the semifinals.
Free State head the log on 26 points, followed by Stellenbosch with 24 points and Madibaz (22).
The next two teams, UP-Tuks and North-West, both have 21 points and are still in the running.
The final round of fixtures will see Madibaz hosting Stellenbosch, Free State at home to North-West and UP-Tuks against University of Western Cape in Pretoria.
Krige said there were a number of positive developments in the team’s performances.
“For example, Jeanie Steyn and Hlumisa Sitonga are returning to form after being out for lengthy periods with injuries.”
“Furthermore on attack our timing was there and this is a result of us following a theme of trying to fix our weakest link.”
While they had undergone strict training regimes with a number of experts, Krige said it was their mental preparation which had been vital to their success.
“We have a ministry team who work with the girls and it has been phenomenal.
“Six of the girls were baptised on Saturday and that sort of situation flows through to their game, because if you are not feeling worthy off court it’s difficult to feel worthy on court.”
Krige said since all the teams in the competition worked hard for their success it was about getting the minor details right.
“I don’t want to say we work harder than anyone else and at this level it’s all about doing the small things properly.”
