Kenya Juniors end World Championship with loss to Japan

Kenya’s junior women volleyball team ended their World U-23 championships with a straight loss to Japan in their final group B match in Ljubljana Slovenia on Friday afternoon

Having lost all other preceding matches to Brazil, Bulgaria, Turkey and Cuba, Kenya needed redemption to end their winless jinx but the girls’ wait for that elusive set continued as they fell  4-0 (15-7, 15-8, 15-6, 15-9) to Japan.

Japan’s lethal attacker Misaki Yamauchi finished with a match-high nine kills for Japan while Yvone Wavinya and Yvone Wafula Sinaida contributed five points apiece for Kenya.

All matches in Ljubljana are played under a new scoring system currently being tested: a best-of-seven, 15-point set format.
