Koyonzo’s display of brilliance saw them top Pool A with maximum points and earned a spot in the quarterfinals, while Lenana showed their mettle by picking seven points in group B.
Vihiga High School, with their unstoppable run in Pool B, is set to clash with Bwake High School, who bounced back from an opening loss to secure their quarterfinal berth with determined victories over Alliance and Shimba in Pool A.
Menengai High School’s commanding presence in Pool C, where they topped the pool with maximum points, sets the stage for a showdown against Yala High School, a team that has fought hard to secure their place in the quarterfinals in Pool D.
Bungoma High School will lock horns with Kitondo High School, the latter making their maiden appearance in the quarterfinals. Bungoma had 100% win record in Pool D.
In the Challenge Quarters, where the action remains equally fierce, the matchups are equally enticing:
Alliance High School and Maseno High School will battle it out for a chance to advance further in the competition.
Kiambu High School and Shimba Hills High School, Garashi High School and Wayam High School and Upper Hill High School and Kangaru High School complete the Challenge Quarters lineup.
