It was business unusual on the last day of this year’s Kenya Secondary Schools Sports Association (KSSSA) national Term Two A games that ended yesterday at Shanzu Teachers Training College, Mombasa.

As winners celebrated their victories with song and dance, the losers shed tears wondering where they went wrong.

Girls handball and netball champions Moi Girls Kamusinga of Western and Kaya Tiwi of Coast joined the long list of 2016 winners who relinquished their crowns this year.

After two straight losses to Kamusinga in the national finals, St Anne’s Sega of Nyanza finally got it right to snatch the national crown.

They did it in style humbling four-time champions Kamusinga 31-17 to lift the coveted trophy. Sega coach David Owinyo said that their desire and determination not to lose to Kamusinga once again was their motivation.

“My girls had endured pain for the past two years and we agreed that we must give it our all and our commitment has finally paid off. Kamusinga are a very good side but I’m glad it is us who carried the day,” Owinyo said.

In the boys’ contest, St Ignatius Mukumu ensured that the trophy returned to Western following their 26-18 win over Dr Ribeiro Parklands of Nairobi.

Mukumu rescued Western from losing the title that was won by St Luke’s Kimilili last year.
