by Sollo Kiragu And Philip Onyango

Rift Valley Secondary Schools reigning champions in boys' and girls' basketball, Laiser Hill from Kajiado, romped into the quarter-finals during the term one games at the Kericho Teachers Training College grounds, Tuesday.
Laiser Hill girls won two straight matches to book a quarter-final ticket in the preliminaries.
The girls drubbed Kituro of Baringo 25-9 in their opening match with Yvonne Mashedi leading the onslaught with 18 points.
They then thrashed Emining 68-20 in their second match, and again, it was Mashedi who starred with 40 points.

Bahati Girls have also made it to the quarters after beating Kipsigis Girls 23-8 and Masai Girls 29-6.
In other matches, Manor House walloped Moi-Isinya 40-06, Kiuani beat Chebara 18-12, while Kaptagat dismissed Njorwa 26-16.
In boys' basketball, Laiser Hill began their title defence on a sound note when they drubbed Weaver Bird of Trans-Nzioa 67-21.

Settled for draw

Laiser Hill had led 32-7 in the first half in a match they controlled from the opening whistle. Makau Kiunagua scored 18 points, while team-mate Innocent Oduor scored 17 points.

In another match, Kaplong beat Laikipia 1-0 in a Pool "A" clash.
