We reduced Customs to nothing, boasts Lung’aho

Kenya Prisons started their hunt for an African Women Volleyball Club title with a thumping note, hitting Nigeria’s Customs by straight sets (25-10, 25-15, 25-15) and head coach David Lung’aho has described that performance on Wednesday evening as the best he’s seen in a long time.

The tactician says he was pleased they started their campaign with a win and hopes they can keep the wheel rolling when they take on Ivory Coast’s Asec Mimoas in their second group match on Thursdayafternoon.

“It was one of the best performances I have ever seen in recent years. The girls were in great spirits and looked very strong in the match. Customs had a very good performance against Injs of Cameroon, but we reduced them to nothing,” Lung’aho said.

“Everything worked out perfectly and we made very few errors which shows that we trained very well and this gives us motivation moving ahead,”

Lung’aho also praised the performance of debutants Loreen Chebet and Sharon Chepchumba, saying the two give him hope that the future of the team is bright.

“Loreen started in the first six and was the best performer of the evening. Sharon came in late in the second set replaceing Makuto (Evelyne) and she really hit those balls and the Nigerians were afraid of her. For girls who have just come from school that was a great performance,” the coach noted.

Prisons have not won the African title since 2013 and came close last year finishing third. This year, Lung’aho is more than confident that the girls from the country’s correctional facilities can break that drought and bring the trophy home.
