Barasa out to join big league of refs

The Star (Kenya) - - Sports Local -

Ju­dith Sarah Barasa will be Kenya’s third fe­male in­ter­na­tional vol­ley­ball ref­eree if she ex­cels in her fi­nal as­sess­ment at the on­go­ing CAVB women’s un­der 23 Cham­pi­onships at Sa­fari­com In­door Arena, Kasarani.

Barasa was nom­i­nated by the Con­fed­er­a­tion of African Vol­ley­ball to of­fi­ci­ate at the ju­nior cham­pi­onships so that she can com­plete the last stage of the ref­er­ee­ing course and be­come an in­ter­na­tional ref.

She an­tic­i­pates to join Tabitha Cherono and cel­e­brated Kenyan in­ter­na­tional and Kenya pipe­line hard hit­ter Lucy Chege in the top level of match of­fi­ci­at­ing. She would have com­pleted her course dur­ing the CAVB Zone V All Africa Games qual­i­fi­ca­tion tour­na­ment held in Kam­pala, Uganda in April 2015 but the con­ti­nen­tal vol­ley­ball gov­ern­ing body didn’t send a ref­eree del­e­gate present to eval­u­ate her per­for­mance.

Barasa is con­fi­dent of her ex­e­cu­tions dur­ing the on­go­ing CAVB women’s un­der-23 Champs at Kasarani.
