For the second time in a row, Koyonzo High School have won the KSSSA National Rugby 7s title, this time around beating Vihiga School 22-12 in a final played at the Bull Ring in Kakamega.

The two were facing off in a repeat of the 2023 Western Region final which Koyonzo, commonly known as Stormers won 17-7.

To retain the title, Koyonzo went on an unbeaten run from the sub-county level to book another ticket to the East African games for the second year in a row.

The Stormers stamped authority by taking a 15-7 lead to the break and despite the second half ending with just one converted try for them, the job was already done.
