Handball team pose with their 1st place trophy
The high flying Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT) sporting teams dispatched rivals in the just concluded Kenya University Sports Associations games to win major trophies in all categories.
The men’s handball team (tigers) broke the duck and bagged gold which had eluded them by a whisker in the previous KUSA playoff finals staged at JKUAT. Their female counterparts (tigress) also had a field day despite settling for silver in the finals.
During the sporting extravaganza which kicked-off at University of Eldoret March 31, 2023, the male and female basketball teams, men’s volleyball team, female netball team, female hockey team and female netball team all made it to the podium with a third-place finish.
Dolan Bwibo, who was part of the hand ball team attributed the success of sports to commitment and hard work from both the University and his team mates.
“The university management gave us the necessary support to ensure that our preparations started early. We also started our mental and physical preparations early so that we don’t bottle the finals,” Dolan said.
Dolan who is a Third Year student pursuing Bachelor of Science in Control and Instrumentation was in a bullish mood after the finals saying JKUAT still retains its status at the pedestal as the team to beat in sports and academia.
Mary Chepkoi who is one of the University coaches was elated by the overall performance of all the teams.
