Today all of the Suba Lakers gathered for their Suba Laker Day.
Three times a year, during the school holidays, all of the primary school girls, secondary school girls and college girls get together for a day of training, food, teaching and competition. On this day, the girls said goodbye to Joe and Daneen Peterson, who are moving back to America. Joe was the co-founder of the club, along with Paul Onundo, and has been the head coach and secretary since the club began back in 2009.
The training was a tough physical one in the hot equatorial sun, but the girls worked hard and had great attitudes. After lunch, the girls heard a very inspirational talk from a successful woman in the community called Mrs. Lucy Ondari, and then competed in a scrimmage.
The day ended with the club handing out awards and trophies to girls for various honors.
Those that were honored were:
Team Spirit Medal - Lillian
Most Improved Player Medal - Apeto (primary) and Jacinter (secondary)
Christian Character Award - Niphrid (primary) and Mary Lucy (secondary)
Leadership Most Courageous Award - Lavenda (primary) and Faith (secondary)
Hardest Worker Award - June (primary) and Bismark (secondary)
Most Coachable Award - Alicent
