KCB head coach Japhet Munala said they made rectifications in the set which enabled the side to cost to victory singling out Kwathanze Girls Secondary school student Maryline Terry for her outstanding role in the final.

‘We realized our mistakes during the first set because we served a lot of ball outside,we rectified that in the subsequent sets and improved our service”.

”I want to thank the student {Terry} from Kawathaze Girls playing for the first time at club level,she made the difference in the team and that’s why we won it easily today. She is an upcoming player that’s very lethal and she is destined for the future, that position that she plays in the national team is occupied by Sharon Chumba, we struggled to find a replacement when Chumba left but we have found a perfect fit”.

Terry said despite having jitters before the matches,the encouragement she got from senior players enabled her to perform well.

‘I got encouragement from Mercy Moim and the rest and told me to keep the focus and said to me what counted. I want to become a great player just like Chumba”, Terry said.

Captain Edith Wisa says the team has weathered four years of hard work which finally paid today.

”We came all of us with one target of winning the championship and i encouraged my team mates to keep pushing and keep the heads up which really gave us the title today”

 

The Paul Bitoks charges never looked back as they raced clear winning the third and decisive fourth sets 25-21, 25,21 respectively to reclaim the national title.
