Daunt­ing task for vol­ley­ball team

Lesotho Times - - Sport - Moorosi Tsiane

THE Le­sotho Vol­ley­ball As­so­ci­a­tion (LVA) public re­la­tions of­fi­cer, Let­satsi Nt­si­bolane, is hop­ing the coun­try would be rep­re­sented with dig­nity at the 2015 All-africa Games qual­i­fiers to be held in Gaborone, Botswana, from 4-10 may.

The as­so­ci­a­tion was re­cently en­gaged in a se­lec­tion process of a male and fe­male team through a tour­na­ment be­ing held at the Na­tional Uni­ver­sity of Le­sotho.

“We are hop­ing to make our de­but at the All-africa Games, so we need to as­sem­ble very strong squads for us to qual­ify.

“We are in the process of se­lect­ing two teams and i can tell you that we are al­most there. The play­ers might then re­sume camp next week,” Nt­si­bolane told the Le­sotho Times.

Ac­cord­ing to Nt­si­bolane, Le­sotho would be fac­ing mozam­bique, Zim­babwe, Zam­bia and Botswana in the qual­i­fiers, with the win­ners mak­ing it to the con­ti­nen­tal show­case set for 4-19 Septem­ber in Braz­zav­ille, Congo.

“it is not go­ing to be easy for us, con­sid­er­ing we will be fac­ing na­tions such as Botswana in the qual­i­fiers. This na­tion has given us prob­lems in the past but i be­lieve our teams will live up to ex­pec­ta­tions this time around, and emerge vic­to­ri­ous. How­ever, we need to have thor­ough prepa­ra­tions if we are to qual­ify,” he said.
