KCB Ladies in Search of Glory at the Eldoret City Volleyball Tourney
KCB Women’s Volleyball team head coach Japheth Munala has expressed confidence in his squad ahead of the Eldoret City Volleyball Tournament expected to serve off at the Eldoret National Polytechnic on Saturday.
The Kenya national defending
champions will face stiff competition in the tournament that has attracted over
100 teams from Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania.
Munala says the competition offers a
good opportunity to test his players in a different setting, especially the new
ones in the squad.
“We are ready to hit the ground
running in this prestigious tournament that will see our team compete against
the best teams from the East African region. This event will be a good test for
our players who have shown tremendous improvement recently.
“We have trained very well for the
competition, and anyone can be called upon to represent the badge,” noted KCB’s
Head Coach Japheth Munala.
Setter Sheila Wabwile, who recently
joined the Munala-led side from Kwanthanze Secondary School, will feature for
the bankers who lost the services of Immaculate Nekesa who has joined rivals
The team’s chances in the
competition, in its second edition, have been bolstered by the return of Phosca
Kasisi who had been sidelined for a long time with a knee injury.
Speaking at Eldoret National
Polytechnic during a training session earlier today, captain Edith Wisa said:
“The team’s confidence is high, and
we cannot wait to take on our opponents in this tournament to prove our class
against the best in Kenya and the region. We are happy to incorporate youngster
Sheila Wabwile into the squad. We will help her develop as she also helps us to
achieve our goals.”
Currently, the bankers are topping
the Kenya Volleyball Federation (KVF) league standings with 12 points after two
rounds played so far.
They were earlier handed a walkover
after Nairobi Water’s failure to show up for Friday’s fixture.
