Little is heard or known about Lubaga Hospital Training School in the world of sports, they are not heard in any contact sports of Volleyball, Football, or even netball and this is not because they don’t have players to compete.
You cannot even hear that they lost in any of the above games but because they have their eyes on the prize of Draught.
A Church of Uganda health training school established in 1956 today rose to fame in the 20th Edition Health Institutions 2022 Games by winning Gold in the girls’ category of Draught Mind Game.
They accumulated a total of 44 points, 2 above second place Soroti School of Comprehensive Nursing, who took Silver and 3rd place Uganda Nursing School-Bwindi who accumulated 29 points.
The Lubaga boys on their part came 2nd in Chess after UIAHMS which took first place with 43 points against 39 points, following them was Mbale COHES with 34 points.
The host Fort Portal took fourth place with 17 points.
The women had UIAHMS lead the pack with 24 points, followed by Lubaga with 22 points and Mbale in third with 17.5 points. 16 teams registered for the tournament.
In Scrabble ladies, 18 teams played themselves, Fort Portal COHES, UIAHMS, and Jinja Medical Lab Training school scored maximum points gained from winning all the four boards that they competed in.
The tournament is played in a round-robin format, where all teams that came were to play against themselves while ranking them in their strength.
Each school has to present 4 participants who would be allocated to 4 boards and they compete among themselves, any team with fewer participants will lose the points from the boards that they don’t have players.
All games end today with an awards ceremony graced by the State Minister of Sports Hon. Peter Ogwang.
