Peninsula Sports: Visiting Kenyan athletes “learning a lot”

A group of Kenyans is finding the North Olympic Peninsula to its liking, and learning an American basketball lesson at the same time.

“We are having a very good experience, learning a lot,” Nash Mbugua, a 20-year-old player for St. Austins Academy of Nairobi, Kenya, said Friday.

He spoke from the Peninsula College bleachers.

On the court, the St. Austins girls played an informal mixed-squad game with a group of Peninsula high school and college players.

“The level of basketball in the U.S. is high compared to the level in our country,” Mbugua went on, speaking English.
