•In 2020, Nduru boys overcame strong opposition to win Kisii county rugby 15’s, hockey and handball titles at the expense of giants Kisii School and Cardinal Otunga High School, Mosocho.
Former giants Nduru Boys are seeking to reclaim their lost glory as the Term Two Games get underway this weekend in Kisii County.
The games start at the sub-county level with Nduru hosting the Gucha games, according to games master Chris Omollo.
Omollo said they are targeting titles in hockey, basketball, handball, soccer, volleyball, and rugby 7’s.
In 2020, Nduru boys overcame strong opposition to win Kisii county rugby 15’s, hockey and handball titles at the expense of giants Kisii School and Cardinal Otunga High School, Mosocho.
Rugby 15’s will not be held this year, according to the calendar released by the Ministry of Education.
Unfortunately, Nduru's basketball team lost in the semis to eventual winners Nyanchwa Boys in the semis. In an interview ahead of the resumption of the game, Omollo said they are targeting to retain their titles.
“We are targeting to reach the regional level in all the games,” said a buoyant Omollo.
He, however, admitted that his team’s fitness levels cannot match previous teams. “With the short notice we received, we didn’t have enough time to properly prepare our teams but I believe we can challenge the big boys for titles,” noted Omollo.
