As the beauty starts to flow across the country for the most prestigious tournament the National County Sports Meet, which is expected to kick-start on December 16, in River Gee County, the Rivercess County Sports Steering Committee has landed the services of Marcken Gibson and Princess M. Kortuwah to form part of their kickball squad for the competition.
Both players penned a deal in Monrovia in the presence of the Chairperson of the Rivercess County Steering Committee Chairman, Oral Willie, and Madam Ruth Coker- Collins, Chairperson of the Rivercess County Mobilization and Resources Committee.
“We are grateful seeing you making up your mind to play with us this season, and I am hopeful that with the experience you guys have, we will be victorious in our quest for the championship for the December 16 edition of the NCSM,” said Coker- Collins.
Gibson, a former player of Margibi and Nimba Counties, won the 2019/2020 edition of the prestigious tournament with Margibi County, where she clinched the highest homes award in that year’s edition, and has also won second place, but never has she claimed a third-place medal with Margibi County.
Since winning the first-place trophy and individual award, Gibson, alias “Marcelo”, has failed to capture such championship and an individual award since.
The Community Youth Empowerment Kickball Club (CYE) player, Gibson, will be hoping to give Rivercess County their first ever kickball championship, come this year’s edition.
As for Princess M. Kortuwah, she last played for Montserrado County, as she is hoping to be a part of history-making by making sure Rivercess County clinch the 2023/2024 kickball category championship.
Rivercess County travel to Nimba County in Group C, along with Grand Kru and Bong Counties.
