    HARARE -
    Harare based Correctional Queens (CQ) and Mimosa Mine owned Platinum Queens (PQ) dominated the inaugural Rainbow Amateur Netball League (RANL) awards clinching three accolades apiece out of seven categories at the awards ceremony held in Harare on Monday.
    The Zimbabwe Prisons and Correctional Services owned CQ scooped the grand prize of $20 000 after finishing atop the league with 40 points while its head coach Christopher Simeon was adjudged coach of the year and bagged $300.
    The team was also awarded $300 for having the best defense which contributed to their title run as the team  won all 20 league games.
    Zvishavane based PQ were third on the league with 32 points and received prize money of $14 000. The team were also adjudicated as the most disciplined team while one of its star players Progress Moyo was voted player of the year and pocketed $300.
    The league has 19 teams and only three teams managed to walk away with accolades.  Kwekwe based Glow Petroleum Queens came second on the league and bagged $18 000 having amassed 35 points during the season.
    Speaking to The Mirror, PQ head coach Simbarashe Mlambo said his team has performed beyond expectations from 10th  position to finish 3rd on the table.
    “It is inspiring working with these women, I am ecstatic, we were 10th placed with a few games to go but we worked hard and ended up on third position. We hope to do better next season,” said Mlambo.
    The awards were sponsored by Pit Glow Private Limited which trades as Glow Petroleum. RANL was formed this year after Pit Glow pumped in $250 000 into the 19 team league.
    Meanwhile, next season PQ will tussle it out with fellow Zvishavane outfit Platinum Angels who were promoted into the RANL together with Tenax Queens, Ndabazinduna Free Stars.
