Three Strathmore University hockey players, reputable as Scorpions, will be representing Kenya at the World hockey league II in Uruguay from the 14th to 22nd February 2015.
World hockey league II is an international hockey tournament, which leads to qualifications into the hockey world cup, commonwealth games and Olympics.
Kenya will be playing in World hockey league II after winning World league series I which was held in Nairobi in late 2014.
The Kenya team will depart on the 12th for the tournament. The three Strathmore Scorpions players who made the cut to carry the country’s flag are; Rachel Ousa, Elizabeth Ngombo and Yvonne Karanja.
Yvonne Karanja is the national team’s vice captain and was also the Africa Women’s Hockey Club Championship top scorer in 2013 where Strathmore won silver medal.
Kenya will play against France, Italy, Azerbaijan and hosts Uruguay. The winner of this group proceeds to world league III, which gives an Olympic qualification.
In other developments, the theatre club of Strathmore University also known as Strathmore Drama society (DRAMSOC) were voted the best Club of the year 2014, and best CSR award in the recently concluded 10th annual sports and clubs Gala award in Nairobi.
The society is known for enacting classical plays, by the likes of Shakespeare, Anton Chekhov, George Bernard Shaw, amongst others. Kaveni Bakajika, 3rd year Law student and former DRAMSOC chairperson said that classical plays have seemingly good messages, which the club has always been able to relate to, and fit them into the Kenyan concept.
