Nairobi Wa­ter teams up­beat ahead of duel

The Star (Kenya) - - Sports - BY PHILIP ONYANGO/

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.
