Kenya Prisons set to defend Nandi governor’s Volleyball Cup

Kenya Prisons head coach Josp Barasa has set his focus to defend the Nandi Governor’s Volleyball Cup as Kenya Volleyball Federation (KVF) league kicks off this weekend at the Kapsabet Showground in Nandi County.

The league will be serving off on Friday 26th before the governor’s Cup on Saturday to Sunday

Barasa, who won the title in 2019 will be seeking to defend the Governor’s title following their 3-1 (18-25, 25-18, 22-25 and 20-25) victory against KCB during the finals played at the same venue on October 27th 2019.

Before the tournament, the KVF season will be serving off where the women champions will have two league matches against Nairobi Prison and KCB as they begin their journey to defend the national title.

Barasa said they will be under pressure trying to defend the title predicting a fierce and competitive tournament.

“This is the opening leg and we are looking forward to better results. As the defending champion, both the national league and the Governor’s Cup, we shall have much to play for,” said Barasa.

He added that they are returning from a long holiday and expects players to be on top of the game to earn good results.

“It has been a long period since we played. Since we played at the national play-offs in August, we have not had good matches. Some of us went into the leave but we are back in action to tackle the hard work ahead of us,” said Barasa.

The wardress remained unbeaten in the tournament and wants to replicate the same when they tackle opponents at the tournament expected to attract top teams and schools in an area well known for producing many volleyballers in the country.

“Our focus will not be anything else apart from playing our best to retain the title. As champions, we shall be taking each game as a final because you never know how other teams have organized themselves,” said Barasa.

This season, 16 teams will be vying for the men’s KVF title and ten women teams.
