All set for fifth season of Varsity Athletics

Updated: February 23, 2017

The Varsity Athletics track and field series will again consist of two meetings this year, organisers confirmed on Thursday.
The opening leg of the student campaign would be hosted by NWU-Pukke in Potchefstroom on March 3, the Varsity Sports body revealed, and the second event would be hosted by Tuks in Pretoria on March 31.
The series, now in its fifth season, would again consist of two categories, with eight universities competing in the A division and four universities turning out in the B division.
“Varsity Athletics affords fantastic opportunities to our young athletes to help them prepare for the biggest athletics event in the world – the Olympic Games, as well as the World Championships,” said Varsity Athletics manager Jana Arlow.
Tickets for both meetings were available via the Varsity Sports mobile app.
