Kenya: Lugulu Coach Worried Over School Status

The elevation of Lugulu Girls School to national status has sent the technical arm of the team into panic as they seek to redeem their national volleyball image.

Head coach Moses Lukorito said the system of acquiring players has now changed with the government taking over the task of posting students across the country.

Lukorito said they used to submit a list of players to join form one or two for consideration, but with the changes in the status of the school, their hopes of direct recruiting will not be possible.

"We are only waiting and praying that God prevails to have at least good volleyball players posted to the school when selection for form one is undertaken in February," he said.

Lugulu dominated volleyball for over a decade until July 25, 2010 when Malava Girls ended their reign as Western Province champions. At the end of "O" Level exams late last month, the school suffered a setback with the departure of five players who are now set to join top league clubs in the country.
