Team Sokoto won three of the four trophies at the recently concluded National U-12/U-15 Boys and Girls Handball Championship, which was held at Sokoto’s Giginya Memorial Stadium.
The squad won the Boys and Girls U-15 trophies, as well as the Girls U-12 trophies, but lost in the Boys U-12 final to KADA Stars from Kaduna.
Rima strikers successfully defended the championship title they gained in the previous edition by defeating their rival from Kebbi state 34-14.
Similarly, in the earlier final match, the Sokoto U-15 girls overcame their opponent from Abia state 19-13.
The girls U-12 division was decided by a league system of home and away matches between the only three teams who competed in that group, with the Sokoto state team emerging winners and the Gboko Dream Girls from Benue coming in second.
On Sunday morning, the Kaduna KADA Stars defeated their Sokoto counterpart in a closely contested game that concluded 24-23 in favor of the Kaduna boys.
Plateau state’s U-12 and U-15 girls won fair play teams in both categories, while Kaduna’s U-15 boys earned fair play in the U-15 boys category.
