Fort Portal College of Health sciences’ dominance in the National Health Institutions Games volleyball continued on Friday with the boy’s team winning the second time title in a row, which was held in Fort Portal city, from August 28 to September 2.

The hosts as well as defending champions Fort Portal COHES defeated Uganda Institute of Allied Health Management Sciences (UHIAHMS) 2-0 (25-23, 25-19) in the final.

Fort Portal COHES displayed amazing tenacity in the match, as they won 2 straight sets.

Fort Portal COHES and UHIAHMS defeated their opponents Nightingale Nursing School and Mildmay institute of Health 2-0 respectively in the semifinals to book their slots in the finals.

This denied UHIAHMS double championship wins as they became girl’s champions earlier in the day.

UHIAHMS crushed the defending champions Jinja Nursing School, with two straight-set wins (2-0) in the finals.

UHIAHMS cruised through Virika Nursing School (2-0) in the semifinals to book the finals slot and Jinja Nursing School as well defeated Kagando Nursing 2-0 in the semifinals.

In the boy’s category, Nightingale Nursing School finished third and Mildmay institute of Health fourth.

In the girl’s category, Virika Nursing School finished third and Kagando Nursing fourth.

The top three schools in each gender are to represent Uganda at the East African Health Institutions games whose venue and dates will be communicated later.

The volleyball tournament started off with 30 teams in the boy’s category and 29 teams in the girl’s category.

The championship had up to 44 Health Institutions with seven different sports disciplines including Athletics (Field, Cross country, and Track events), Mind Games (Omweso, Draught, Chess, and Scrabble), and Ball games (Volleyball, Netball, Football, Handball, and Woodball).
