In previous years, the Hewat college athletes competed against the athletes of the Western Province Senior Schools Sports Union (WPSSSU), but this had stopped in 1982 when Hewat Training College withdrew from the WPSSSU to compete in a colleges’ only meeting.  For a small college, with a small pool of athletes, Hewat were good enough to compete in the A Section of athletics in senior schools.
