As schools are heading for half term break, it is a big championship week for Ndaraweta Girls High School after they were crowned winners in the Bomet Central Sub County School Games that ended over the past weekend.

Ndaraweta Girls won 2-1 over Chepngaina Secondary School, putting them on the verge of its first-ever County title after many years of struggling in the sub-zonal levels.

The game was played at Chepngaina playground as Ndaraweta Girls played all their games on the road this season as their home field in Ndaraweta was unplayable with poor field conditions to host the finals.

Jalody Chelangat and team captain Shirlyne Cheptoo scored the decisive goals, while Sharon Chepkirui netted a consolation goal for Chepngaina.

Speaking after the historic win, Captain Shirley said: “This win was not easy, but we put all our efforts into achieving this feat, and we are happy to win the title.”

On their way to finals, they overcame tremendous odds to beat the four-time unbeaten champions Chebonei Girls Secondary School earlier this month, which was also defeated 3-2 by Chepngaina.

The school’s volleyball team will also be taking part in their first-ever county championship, which will be held between July 3 and July 5 at the Itembe Secondary playground.

“I am happy to have won these two titles. This shows a sign of good things that are coming our way. We are now preparing for the challenges ahead of us,” said Ndaraweta Girls High School principal Norah Yegon.

From Bomet Central Sub County, Ndaraweta Girls will be heading to the county school games with the Tenwek High School football team, which defeated Kabungut Boys 2-0 in a thrilling match with goals from Veron Wanjala and Gideon Kipkulei.
