Lilian Joins the Kenya National Team

Lilian Awuor broke down barriers recently and became the first Suba Laker to play for the Kenya Women's National Team!  

After a great 2nd year in Secondary school where she led her team, Nyakach Girls, to the Regional Championship, National Semifinals and all the way to the East African games, Lillian was invited to come to the Harambee Starlets training camp as they prepared for an international match.  She was one of the goalkeepers selected and one of the youngest members to represent the country in matches held in Uganda.  Other Suba Lakers have tried out for the national team at various times, but none of them have had the opportunity to don the Kenyan jersey in an international match.  

Lilian has already traveled with the Harambee Starlets to Uganda and Morocco for various international matches! This is an incredible experience for Lilian. We hope more opportunities will come for her and other Suba Lakers in the future.
