Above the Net repeat

Community volleyball in West Bay came to an exciting close over the weekend.

A number of entertaining matches closed out the 2011 West Bay Community Sports Volleyball League. On Saturday 16 April the Sir John Cumber Primary School saw the top youth and adult teams competing for the highly coveted title of community champions.

The league would see a set of repeat champions. In the youth division the Young Blazers defeated the Steelers in a nail-biting finish for the youth title. Led by young sportsmen Tevin Yen and Quinton Ebanks, Young Blazers won two sets to one with the scores reading 15-10, 14-16 and 15-5.

After the match Ebanks, 14, stated that he was pleased to be a part of the competition.

“It was good and it was pretty hard for us to come back and win,” Ebanks said. “Being a part of this makes me happy. If I wasn’t out here I’d probably be at my cousin’s house playing video games.”

Over in the adult division, Scholars inched past Wesleyan Christian Academy’s all girls team 15-11 and 15-12 to capture third place honours. Meanwhile defending champions Above the Net, put together by Director of Sports Collin Anglin, cemented their place in community volleyball league history by becoming the first team to win two straight titles.

Starring on Above The Net was basketball talent Jarrett Terry, 19. He was pleased to be champion.

“For me this is extra sweet because last year me and Kim Rivers were on a different team and we came up just short,” Terry said. “We were drafted by Collin into the team and luckily it worked out for us. Once we got our heads in the game we pulled out the victory.”

The West Bay Community Sports Committee thanks this year’s sponsors – MJS Plumbing, J and M Electronics, Fire Extinguisher Pros, The Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Sports for their continued support.
