Day one of the USSSA National Ball Games Two witnessed dominant performances from seventeen USSSA-National record holders in the discipline of netball.

Schools such as St. Mary’s Kitende, Kibuli Secondary School, Buddo Secondary School, Kawempe Muslim Secondary School, Namagabi Secondary School, and St. Josephine Bakhita walked through their matches with ease, securing decisive victories.

Day One, St. Mary’s Kitende walloped Light High School 49-09, Kibuli Secondary School: Overpowered Kakungulu Memorial 26-11, Buddo Secondary School edged past Kasawo Secondary School 24-22, Kawempe Muslim Secondary School: Defeated Busiika Muslim 26-21 and Namagabi Secondary School Won against St. John’s Kauga 22-19.

Before the games commenced, schools were taken aback by unexpected changes to the draw. Initially agreed upon in Kampala, the format was set to have a Round of 32, but this was revoked last minute, reverting to a Round of 16.

This change, meaning only the top two teams from each group would progress, left schools confused and delayed the throw-off for nearly two hours as negotiations ensued over the flow chart.

Netball is a major sport in Ball Games Two, with over eighty schools competing for slots in the FEASSA Games 2024. Despite the initial confusion and delay, the games proceeded with intense competition.

Wallnetnews interviewed fans and coaches to gauge their reactions to day one’s results, Sarah Nansubuga, a St. Mary’s Kitende supporter, “Our team’s performance was spectacular. Winning 49-09 against Light High Katikamu shows our determination and skill. I’m confident we’ll continue this streak.”

David Mukasa, a neutral fan, “The matches today were thrilling despite the initial delays. The level of competition is high, and it’s exciting to see so many talented teams vying for a spot in the FEASSA Games.”

Mr. Kisuule, St. Mary’s Kitende, “Our girls played exceptionally well today. The unexpected changes to the draw were a challenge, but we adapted quickly and focused on our game. We aim to maintain this momentum throughout the tournament.”

Jesse Asimwe, Buddo Secondary School Coach, “Today’s match against Kasawo was tough, but our team showed great resilience. The changes to the format were surprising, but we’re ready to tackle any challenges that come our way. Our focus is on winning and securing our spot in the FEASSA Games.”

The USSSA National Ball Games Two continue to be a showcase of talent and determination, with teams pushing their limits to achieve victory. As the tournament progresses, the excitement and intensity are expected to rise, promising more thrilling matches and standout performances.
