Laiser Hill wins first title

Laiser Hill became the first school to win a title after winning Rugby-seven-a-side at Rift Valley Secondary School Sports Association played at the Eldoret Polytechnic grounds today.

The Kajiado based school became the first to qualify for the national Kenya Secondary School Sports Association (KSSSA) that will be held at the same venue that kicks off on July 20th 2017.

Laiser Hill Academy stood among the greats to win the rift valley title beating other 13 county schools in one of the most competitive and crowded championships better than the national championships that will host eight counties.

The new champions beat Nakuru Day 19-0 in the final’s one sided match to bag regional bragging rights.

Nicholas Kato touched the ground for the champions as well as Gregory Simiyu and Branson Madigu for three tries as Simiyu made two successful conversions for a 19-0 win.

The victory served a big consolation to the Kajiado based side who relinquished their East Africa rugby 15s title last term following their defeat at the same stage against Menengai Mixed. Nakuru Day will however proceed to the nationals as first runners up besides third place finishers Bwake from Trans Nzoia.

As usual, soccer under 19 champions St. Anthony’s Kitale thrashed Kabimoi in the third quarter final match. Titus Kapchanga netted a hat trick to see his team sail to the semi final while Chemase from Nandi beat their neighbours Wareng high school by a solitary goal.

Wareng against Chemase was the most heightened match that police were forced to man the field before kick off.
