Nyakach Girls dominated the 2023 Kisumu County Secondary School games that ended on Friday at Kisumu Boys High School.
In football under-19 girls finals, Nyakach defended their title after thumping Nyakoko Mixed 5-0 in a one-sided final.
Aisha Akinyi scored in the opening half as Nyakach took narrow 1-0 half time lead before Maureen Eseri, Swaum Masungo and Vivian Akinyi completed the job in the final half as they picked a confoirtable 5-0 victory.
Speaking after the win, Nyakach football coach Chrispin Odindo said they want to reclaim their regional title they lost last year in Homa Bay.
“We are back. Last year we were not so lucky but now we are ready. Our target is set at reclaiming the regional trophy we lost to Kobala,” said Odindo.
Nyakach netball coach Loice Okore who are the county champions echoed Odindo’s sentiments.
Nyakach only needed to play the first quarter to be declared champions after their opponents Ngere Kagoro threw in the towel never to return to the pitch. Nyakach were leading 26-3 in the first quarter.
“Last year we were not ready because of the previous covid-19 stoppages and we played terrible. Losing to Kobala in netball and football was an eye opener but we are back. For netball, we have also to reclaim the regional title and then go for the national crown,” said Okore.
Nyakach also won the volleyball title after edging out Koru Girls 3-0. In basketball 3x3, Nyakach also emerged champions to complete four trophies after seeing off St Barnabas 21-7. Susan Ouma finished with 27 points for Nyakach in the overall score chat followed by teammates Stacy Adhiambo (26 points) and Mitchel Obonyo (24 points).
