Strathmore ‘Jaguars’ Lift Nakuru Tournament

There have been plenty of incredible teams and incredible seasons in world football.  FC Barcelona dominated 2009 football and perhaps achieved the greatest footballing year in the history of international football. The most convincing argument to place Barcelona on top is their record.  They participated in six competitions and won them all. 


In the 1995-96  National Basketball Association (NBA) league season Chicago Bulls led by the likes of Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen and Dennis Rodman, posted the best regular season NBA record of all time (72-10) and went on to defeat the Seattle SuperSonics in the 1996 NBA Finals.

The way these two groups of players worked together to reach their goals is inspiring. Individually, none of them—even the immensely talented Michael Jordan, Lionel Messi, Samuel Eto’o or Andres Iniesta—could have accomplished what they did together. They needed each other to succeed. They needed team work.

Over the weekend of 24-25th of August 2013 Strathmore Men Volleyball team Jaguars displayed outstanding team work during the Nakuru Tournament held at Nakuru Polytechnic in Nakuru County.

The team started the tournament on a high note by hammering USIU three sets to nil. Later on the team went ahead to set more records in the tournament by ambushing all their opponents’ three sets to nil. The results were as follows:


Saturday-24th August

Strathmore vs USIU               3:0

Strathmore vs Daystar          3:0   


Sunday -25th August

Strathmore vs MKU                  3:0      

Strathmore vs Ravine TTI      3:0


What rightfully belongs to you, belongs to you. What is meant is meant to happen will still happen even if it is delayed. In the end the best of the best received their reward thanks to the good display of discipline, team work and passion- Strathmore Jaguars lifted the Nakuru Tournament trophy. The joy and smiles could not be hidden and the Head Coach Josp Barasa had this to say, “Due to the players’ hard work, determination and discipline they emerged the best and I believe they can do it again”


Congrats! Congrats! Jaguars –the best of the best in volleyball.
