Strathmore Sports Team of the Year Scholars to Enjoy Scholarship Increase

Strathmore University men’s Hockey team (Gladiators) emerged top in the 12th Annual Sports and Clubs awards ceremony that took place on 9th February 2017. Drama Society Club (DRAMSOC) bagged the club of the year award, at the event that was set under the theme Balancing Sports and Academics.  

 

While giving his remarks, the Dean of Students Mr. Paul Ochieng took time to announce the exciting award the winning team will enjoy – scholars from Gladiators will receive an increase in scholarships to 90%, as a token of appreciation for the hard work in the year. This awarding, courtesy of Strathmore University Vice Chancellor, will be awarded annually to the winning sports team. Mr. Ochieng also highlighted the launch of a new application for clubs, the Clubs Management Systems (CMS), recently created by the research club to aid with management of data for clubs.

 

Guest of Honour Humphrey Kayange, a former captain of the Kenya Rugby National team, spoke of his achievements while playing Rugby that included his great wins. Humphrey spoke of attributes he values that include discipline, sacrifice and determination.  Encouraging the sports men and women present at the event, Humphrey highlighted seasons in his life where he had to study and play, stating the successes that came with it.  “Embrace the spirit of excellence in sports and academics and in the end everything will work out,” he said.

 

Alumnus basketball player (Blades), Leon Alushula – Bank Analyst at the Central Bank of Kenya, encouraged the sportsmen and women to be full of determination, urging them to avoid mediocre in both sports and academics. “Those who adopt this attribute, will enjoy great victories in life,” he stated.

 

Racheal Ousa – an Officer Branch Operations at I&M Bank and a former Scorpion (Strathmore’s women hockey team) member also attended the event to encourage the students. Rachel, who studied under a sports scholarship, spilled her secrets to success in sports and academics. Having graduated with a first class in 2014, Rachel attributed her accomplishment to her decision to be excellent at what she does every day. She expressed her gratitude to the University for moulding her into the person she is today.

 

At the end of the awarding ceremony, the late Captains Geoffrey Githaiga (Strathmore Rugby team – Leos) and Billy Nyagosia (Strathmore Basketball team – Blades), who passed away in 2016, were honored in a special way. The Dean of students presented honor planks to the family representatives after tribute videos were played in remembrance of the two soldiers.
