CML novices are champs

The CML Hammerheads are celebrating success in their inaugural season in the Cayman Slo-Pitch League after claiming the C League championship in their first attempt.

Last Tuesday CML took down Kroll Risky Business 14-7. Leading the way for the Hammerheads was team co-captain Colin Doylend.

CML got past a heavy-hitting Kroll with timely pitching and good defense.

The team was a partnership between Grand Pavilion-based CML Offshore Recruitment and George Town’s Hammerheads. The team consisted of CML staff as well as bar staff and customers from Hammerheads bar.

With the win CML have officially won the four-team C League and has its eyes set on moving up to the B League.

The new season of co-ed softball is set to begin in January.

Team Co-Captain and Marketing Manager for CML Colin Doylend said the team combined fun and competitiveness.

‘The ethos of the team is all about fun, sportsmanship and friendship – a perfect fit for both sponsors CML and Hammerheads. We are looking forward to next season.’

In beating Kroll, CML have now added more silverware to their sports trophy case. In the recent past they have created formidable sides in a number of sports such as the CML Spartans touch rugby team, CML Claymores soccer team and the CML Professionals who had a perfect season in ball hockey.

CML CEO Steve McIntosh says the company’s excellence on the field mirrors its performance in the office.

‘The CML brand has always been associated with excellent results and effective teamwork. We’re very proud of Colin and his team for this outstanding achievement.’

The Slo-Pitch league is proving extremely popular on the island and there are now twenty teams spread across three leagues.
