SPORTS, something that one needs to be part of after studies, to exercise, make your muscles build, to entertain not only oneself but others too, to show or build up on one’s talents. Sports bring people together and create unity among them. Just the same way to bring students from different universities together, Sporting games is carried out. This way,they are not only get to know each other and interact but also create a friendly environment among the students and other stuff. Recently games were held at JKUAT Main Campus, Juja. JKUAT Kakamega Campus had the netball, football and volleyball teams participating in the JKUAT Opens.
We heartily congratulate the football team as they qualified to the Semifinals. The participants in football game were Kenyatta University, KU Ruiru, JKUAT Main, JKUAT Kisii, JKUAT Kakamega, JKUAT Nakuru, Gretsa University, Mt.Kenya University and St. Paul University. In semifinals, JKUAT Kakamega Campus played against KU Main. Though we were not so lucky in the semifinals, KU Main won with a score of 1 to nil.
Netball and Volleyball also played well though they were knocked out at group stages. We encourage our players not to loose heart as winning and losing is part of game, rather practice hard next time and conquer other teams in the next games.
Our Director, Dr. Juma Dennis, who led us to this stage, congratulated the teams who participated for their hard work and dedication in JKUAT Opens and also said there would be more sporty activities in our Campus aiming at different tournaments within the county and outside.
