National team setter Jane Wacu was named the best setter after she steered a Kenyan combined side, Aspire Sport, to a straight sets win over Rwanda Revenue Authority during the annual Kampala Armature Volleyball Club International Tournament in the Ugandan capital this past weekend.
Kenya, who sent two teams, won six individual awards including the women's Most Valuable Player (MVP). Kenya Defence Forces and national team setter Elisha Aliwa who was representing another combined side, Nairobi Volleyball Club, was named the best male setter while Nairobi Water outside hitter Jimmy Mwaniki scooped the best defender in the men's category despite his side losing in the third and fourth place playoff.
Former Malkia Strikers captain Brackcides Agala won the MVP award while her replacement Mercy Moim got the best attacker with rising youthful Edith Wisa of Prisons coming back with the best blocker's trophy.
The team which consisted of mostly players from Kenya Prisons crossed the boarder last Friday to the annual tournament whose winner took home Ksh. 100,000 prize money.
Rwanda's Unik beat home side Sky of Uganda 3-2 to lift the men's gong.
