Several of the Suba Lakers are returning this year with a lot of experience and their sights set on moving further than they did last year. As young players, Siska Verah and Florence Wangoi were key contributors up to the Sub-County level in 2014, but with a year of maturity, they want to play a bigger role this year and go further. Felistas Atieno, Mourine Owiti and Phylice Akoth all helped their team win the Homa Bay County Championships, but were disappointed when they weren’t selected to move on to Regionals like some of their teammates were. Felistas turned into a very strong central defender who uses her aggressiveness, size and skill to keep the ball away from the goal. Mourine has been a powerful, fast defensive wing player for many years now. Phylice uses her speed to put pressure on the opponent’s defense as a striker. Last year Lencer Adoyo was the starting defender and arguably the most valuable player on the Lake Region team that won their first ever National championship. With that experience under her belt she is excited about the opportunity of helping her team win back to back national championships.
The early stages of the ball-games should be starting any day now. The ball games begin at the school level (or Base) and progress up through the Zone, Division, Sub-County (District), County, Region and culminates at Nationals!
We wish our Suba Lakers success in all of their competitions!
