What you need to know:

  • Reaching the last four was a far much better performance than that of their debut at the Nationals in 2017 where they exited at the group stage
  • Deputy Principal Peter Mugendi is now calling upon the county and central governments to set up a centre of excellence at the school
  • Important to note is that there’s no single stadium in Garissa County, but the young lads of Boys Town High School still have big dreams

They come from a region not known for sporting prowess. In fact, a region better known for insecurity and terrorism.
