“Through respect many goals can be achieved and I am very pleased to having represented the entire province in this competition”

These are the words of UNIZULU student Senzo Myeni who has just returned from an international soccer tournament in Zambia.

Myeni, a striker, was one of 16 students who represented South Africa in 17th edition of the Confederation of Universities and Colleges Sports Association (CUCSA) games held last month.

He was however the only student from KwaZulu-Natal, meaning the weight of representing the province lay on his shoulders.

Dedication and discipline bore fruit for Myeni as he was named the second leading goal scorer of the competition.
The prolific striker said taking part in the competition was all about representing the University, the province and the country at large.

The South African team reached the finals of the tournament but lost to Namibia.

Myeni believes that for sportsmen and women to go places they need to be disciplined, to work hard and to be well-mannered.

It was not the first time for him to be the second goal scorer; he was indeed a second goal scorer in University Sport South Africa (USSA) games last year, which the UNIZULU squad won.

Myeni and his UNIZULU teammates will be hoping to defend the trophy in December when the games are held.
