County handball girls champions Senior Chief Musa Nyandusi (SCMN) Kegati have been urged to believe in themselves and rise above their perennial rivals Sega Girls if they have ambitions of making it to nationals when the two sides once again face off in Nyanza Secondary School Sports Association Term One games which starts today at St Mary’s Yala in Siaya county.
Kegati has established themselves as Kisii county handball girls powerhouse after dominating the county games for over three years and winning the trophy in three straight years but have found it hard to beat Sega in the regionals hence failing to showcase their prowess beyond Nyanza region.
Nyanza region handball games technical director Fred Obuba believes that with the massive talents, scouting and experience that Kegati has, they have what it takes to win in the regionals as well as national trophies.
“Kagati have always trained players right from form one. This give them the consistence of players and have for long time been playing together,” said Fred Obuba. It’s no doubt that the team has excelled in county championship but despite the fact that they have better players the region can offer, they have always lost at the semis at regional,” he continued before offering a piece of advice to the team.
“The team can make it to nationals if they have self-confidence and stop using history that Sega are unbeatable who have represented our region in four consecutive years,” concluded Nyanza region handball technical director who’s also in charge of the sport in the region.
Sega beat Kegati in the semis last year en route to defending their Nyanza region title before shining further as they went all the way to win the national trophy for the first time and as the Nyanza region games start today, both teams have made it the regional competition after winning their respective counties.
With Kegati eyeing to go past Sega, Sega on their side are in bullish mood as they seek to defend their title and earn a ticket to also defend their national trophy.
