The events that took place at Nakuru High School today were exhilarating, to say the least; and across all sports at that!
It all kicked off with some cross country action, which saw three talented young men by the name of Alfred Barkach, Andrew Logot and Abraham Kibiwot take the first three positions, further adding weight to the fact that the Great Rift Valley continues to dominate in athletic games.
The victor, Alfred
The day then took a turn for the better; at least for the ladies. Swimming games are always a favourite for the female sports fans, for reasons such as the presence of young Ian Njoroge from Brookhouse School.
(I will withhold any hating, despite my burning jealousy -_-)
The highlights of the games were the basketball semi-finals, which pulled the largest crowd. It was only natural that the ladies went first, in which Shimba Hills and St. Brigids emerging victorious. They defeated Mabera and Parky Arya 96-13 and 57-50 respectively. The MVPs were Akinyi Winny from Shimba Hills, and Vivian Saina from St. Brigids.
The boys’ games were kutight vibaya sana.; at least one of them was. Upperhill white washed St. Georges 84-32, with their 6”8’ MVP Riny Riny Riny emerging the MVP with 43 points.
I repeat, 6”8’
In a more competitive game, Maseno edged out Kapenguria 49-41 to book a place in the final with Upperhill. Their MVP Lewis Omwoyo looked like he was ready to unleash the most fire performance of the whole tournament.
The finals of the KSSSA games will be played tomorrow, stay on our radar for updates on all the action.
