KCB right attacker Sharon Chepchumba and her counterpart Mercy Moim were named the Most Valuable Player and best receiver respectively in the just concluded African Women’s Volleyball Clubs Championship held in Kelibia, Tunisia.

KCB captain Edith Wisah, who played a key role in helping the Bankers lift the championship title for the first time in 16 years on Tuesday, was also feted the best middle blocker.

Fast-rising and hard-hitting Kenya Pipeline left attacker Veronica Adhiambo was named the best in the position and was crucial in helping the Oilers win the bronze in the annual championship.

Chepchumba, who is also the reigning Africa best attacker with the national team, racked up 56 points in the final with a whooping 66 attacks.

She played a key role in dismantling opponents’ defense line on the nets throughout the tournament and has proved to be one of Kenya’s finest stars.

In the last year’s African Championship held in Rwanda, the former Kwanthanze Secondary School player helped Malkia Strikers finish runners up behind Cameroon where she was feted the best attacker alongside the team’s captain Moim, who was voted the best receiver.

KCB defeated record-holders Al Ahly of Egypt 3-1 in the final to be crowned champions for the first time since 2006 while Pipeline saw off immediate champions Carthage of Tunisia to finish third.
