Maples show net support

Netball’s national Under-16 squad recently returned from Jamaica where they competed in the Caribbean Netball Association Jean Pierre Tournament.

In addition to the training and hard work that earned then an invitation to compete at the event, the team and members of the netball association had to make a concerted effort to raise the money to pay for their trip.

Impressed by the team’s great effort to raise the necessary funding Cayman Islands law firm Maples and Calder was eager to assist with making up the shortfall.

Twelve players travelled to the event accompanied by three coaching staff. Although they did not return home with the winner’s trophy, the team did capture two honours.

Liana Benjamin was named ‘Most Accurate Shooter’ of the tournament, and Rosemarie Wilson was named to the ‘Top 16’ list of players from a total of 84 competitors.

The team and their coaches were very pleased with their overall performance and said that the players learnt a great deal and had a very memorable experience.

Maples and Calder partner Dale Crowley, speaking on the firm’s behalf, was ‘very pleased with the team’s efforts at the tournament, and was happy to have assisted them.’
