During the weekend of April 18 – 20, 2013, the KSVS men’s soccer team won the area championship tournament held in Fort Portal, which gave them the right to represent all of Kamwenge District in the National Championship Tournament May 4 – 18 to be held in Kabale.

The team slogan “guba mutima” meaning “it’s a matter of the heart” led them to play skillfully against other teams. To them it was first a spiritual matter before it became physical. They rallied support among themselves and their community, using gospel songs, making it an opportunity for the gospel even though it was a sports event.  They made it a habit to pray before every match and this, they believed, positioned their team for victory.

Although the team did not win the country championship, they represented themselves and their school with honor and grace.
