Namibia finished fourth out of nine countries at the fourth Sub Saharan swimming championships held at the Les Brown Pool in Harare, Zimbabwe from January 5-7.
The Namibian team made up of Dannielle van Zijl (20), Quinton Delie (14), Daniela Lindemeier (14), Cassey Mooney (14), Keelan Mooney (11) and Janine Steenkamp (15), brought home 23 medals which included nine gold, nine silver and five bronze. The team also broke five Sub Saharan records.
Civics took over at the top of the Namibia Premier League log after collecting maximum points in Walvis Bay over the weekend.
On Saturday they beat Blue Waters 2-0 and on Sunday they beat Eleven Arrows 4-0 to move to the top with 13 points after six matches.
Tigers 2 Orlando Pirates 1
Tigers secured their second victory of the weekend when they beat Orlando Pirates 2-1 at the SKW field on Sunday.
Ettienne Beukes had given Pirates the lead shortly after halftime, but the match swung Tigers' way when Pirates defender Steve Goaxab received two yellow cards and was sent off 10 minutes into the second half.
Black Africa 3 Ramblers 2
Ramblers suffered their first defeat of the season when they were beaten 3-2 by Black Africa at the SKW field on Sunday, January 14.
Ramblers had most of the possession but two goals within a minute by Ronnie Hochobeb gave BA a 2-0 lead at halftime.
Eleven Arrows thrashed Friends 7-0 at the Kuisebmond Stadium on Saturday, January 13, to move away from the bottom of the log.
Arrows' national midfielder Rudolph Bester was in great form, scoring a hattrick and being instrumental in most of their attacking moves, while Friends were totally outclassed. Had it not been for some brave saves by their keeper Joshua Buys in the opening 15 minutes, Arrows' victory margin could have even been higher.
