Unimpressed Ndawula praises mental fortitude of Nemostars

KAMPALA- Nemostars’ Anthony Ndawula is the hardest volleyball coach to impress, though he will never cease to give credit to his players where it’s due.

Nemostars defeated KAVC 3-2 (25-10, 25-17, 17-25, 23-25, 15-11) to defend the National Club Championship in Fort Portal last weekend.

That didn’t in anyway make Ndawula jubilate like he didn’t last year when they won their first.

“Not that I am really impressed, though some of the players who have not been performing stepped up their game,” Ndawula told Daily Monitor.

“It’s terrible to say this but the weather has not been on our side and our training has not been good because we train outdoor.”

“The victory came because of the little input that we have been putting in lately,” he added.

Mental fortitude
Before the final, Nemostars had to come from two sets down to defeat Sport-S 3-2 (19-25, 23-25, 25-17, 25-20, 15-3) in the semifinal.

“The mental fortitude of the Nemo boys was up there especially in the semis, we were two sets down and no one gave us a chance,” Ndawula praised his team.

“The most important thing we do is keeping our reserves and not to break down in low moments, that is what sets us apart from the teams we play,” he added.

Ndawula believes the team will be able to get back to their best before the league playoffs that start next month.

“We still have some time to prepare for the national league playoff and it’s important for us to step up our games.”

“The last two games we played against Sport-S and KAVC were really very hard and we will face one of those two in the semis,” said Ndawula.

Nemostars will go into the play offs as a third seed after losing against Sport-S, UCU Doves and Nkumba Navy.
