It is what we dreamed of, says Senyonyi

The Uganda Christian University (UCU) Sports team has been recognized for its outstanding performance.

The sports men and women from various disciplines last year bagged 19 trophies and emerged second in the recently held East Africa University Games in Dodoma, Tanzania.

Speaking during a luncheon organized for recognition of their efforts, Vice Chancellor Rev Canon Dr. John Senyonyi congratulated the sports teams upon their extra ordinary performance especially in Dodoma where the University team was noted as the most disciplined and smart group.

He further said he was glad and contented because UCU fields its own students unlike other universities which allegedly use people who are not even students as part of their teams. He appreciated the coaches for their great work that heavily contributed to the team’s excellence. Dr. Senyonyi encouraged the sportsmen to be champions both on and off the pitch.

He further advised them to plan for life after sports by concentrating in education as well. The University sports team won a total of 19 trophies last year from both local and international tournaments and 36 medals from the December 2018 East Africa University Games.

Mr. David Mugawe, the Deputy Vice chancellor for Development and External Relations, encouraged sportsmen to keep up with the good performance because it has not only branded the University but contributed to UCU’s mission of a holistic education.
