Nairobi Water teams upbeat ahead of duel
Nairobi Water volleyball teams (men and women) will rely on a blend of youthful and experienced players to win their first ever national volleyball titles as the playoffs kick off in Mombasa on Thursday.
Coaches John Mwaniki (men) and Joseph Waiganjo (women) clarified they are in Mombasa not on holiday but on a mission. “We missed the playoffs very narrowly last year because we started the season badly but we have since corrected our mistakes,” Mwaniki said.
He said he will rely on Jimmy Mwaniki, Moses Kurgat, Peterson Kimutai and Stephen Murimi for the big win. Waiganjo said the youthful players he recruited were the drive behind their third position league and vowed to build on that.
He said Damaris Chekolom, Maureen Okai, Lencer Hereto and Eglau Kuloba have comfortably replacedChemtai Ndiema and Jacinta Miheso, who are on sick leave.
