Every Saturday the John A Cumber
primary school hall is packed with the young and young at heart eager to play
and have wholesome fellowship.
Last Saturday was no different as
the teams finished another week of play. The youth league drew much attention
from adolescents, teens and adults.
Three noteworthy females are Krista
Ebanks, Deandra Ebanks and Jackie Bodden. Both of the Ebanks girls are youth
players while Bodden is a volunteer referee.
Krista, 13, plays for the
Incredibles in the youth league and Scholars SC in the adult league.
The outgoing youngster says her
favourite book is Twilight and New Moon. She also loves to say “I’m connected,
wow!” and she is ecstatic about the league saying “I just love it!”
Deandra meanwhile is 11 and plays
for the Warriors youth team. Outside of playing, her favourite book to read is
“Tales of a 12th Grader.”
She takes the scriptural truth of
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” to heart and is
enjoying herself within the league.
“I am having a good time and I want
everyone to come out and have a good time as well,” Ebanks stated.
Bodden is a youth league referee,
primarily for Warriors and Star Ballers games. Her favourite book is the Bible.
The mature West Bayer encouraged the public to see the league in motion.
“So far the volleyball league has
been successful and continues to grow,” Bodden said. “I encourage more parents
and children to come out and participate as it is a great experience for everyone.”
In all three teams compete in the
youth league. Coming into this week the Warriors were top of the league with the
Incredibles and the Star Ballers close on their heels.
The adult league has six teams. Future
SC is tied for the league lead with West Bay Spikers and Scholars SC ahead of
North West Pointers, Above The Net and the Matadors.
League matches resume again tomorrow
from 6:30pm at the school hall. The public is welcome and encouraged to come
out and watch the games.
