Law Year one Female Basketball Team wins the First Interdepartmental Tournament in Gikondo Campus
Law players were very solid in an outstanding win over journalism and communication year two despite the fact that they never had enough time to train together as it has been revealed by team captain Henriette Mbabazi. “it was really tough game and we were very scared of our opponents before we started playing because we had lost a game against them during knock out stage. But we glued together and eventually got this fantastic victory. It was a bit hard to start such big tournament without having been trained together before but we have made though” said Henriette.

Both teams faced each other during knock out stages and journalism triumphed with 10 points to 8 of law year one. It was a bit difficult for Journalism warriors to win over Law repeatedly because the opponents looked very determined with anger of revenging.

Only four teams managed to show up in this tournament namely; Law year one, journalism year two, BBA year one and BBA year three. However, the Minister of sports in UR Gikondo campus, Charles Shyaka explained that this was just because some of other departments were in internship, as he carries on stressing that on the initial of these games they are satisfied with how they went on and hope to do much improvements in next year’s competition. “some of other departments which never showed were doing internships. Thinking of these games we looked forward to bringing students together and booming up the casual relationship amongst them. Thus we are really satisfied.” said Charles
