After a very entertaining tournament at Thika High School, the journey to the 2020 Kenya Secondary Schools Sports season moved on to Mang’u High School and Lenana School who held their tournaments on 25th – 26th January. The turnout wasn’t as high as it was in Thika opens but that didn’t deter the young sportsmen and women who were there to leave a mark on their opponents.

I was fortunate to watch the lads in Mang’u open play and there was an increase in intensity and a lot of improvement in fitness compared to the first open. The games that were played included rugby 15s, football, handball, hockey, swimming and basketball.

Day one started on a low note with the games having to be delayed due to late arrival of most teams but as soon as the games started everyone gave it their all as they aimed to top their pool. The hosts were out to prove that the sporting giants were back as all their teams made it to the quarter-final even though they fielded two teams in all the categories.

The hosts then went on to clinch the rugby 15s trophy after humiliating Pioneer School 45-0 in the final where fly half Robin Brett Mwenda gave a world-class performance scoring a brace of tries and only missing two conversions out of the seven.

They didn’t stop there as they also won the handball and hockey categories with a 1-0 win over Gathugu in hockey but unfortunately we were unable to get the actual scores for handball.

There are still two more weeks till the 2020 season starts but the action this weekend moves to Alliance High School for the annual Bush open. Will new champions be crowned!?
