Stacy Reid-Satahoo has quietly been a good player in netball. Recently she was awarded for her play in a community competition put on by the New Testament Church on North Sound Road.
Reid-Satahoo was honoured as the top shooter for the first annual community netball tournament, held at the church. A current member of the All Stars netball club, she took part in the event prior to the playoffs for the Cayman Islands Netball Association 2011 open league (which are currently ongoing).
Interestingly the competition would see teams split up into two groups. Those playing for the church’s father of the year Everod Edwards and those playing for the mother of the year May Friend. A number of notable netball players would suit up.
Roma sports club, who also use the church’s outdoor court as a training ground, were out in force with the likes of Sudan Powell, team manager Stacy-Ann Dehaney and Carrie Barnett among others. Molly-Ann Moore served as match official and most of the members of Unity netball club (who also train at the church) were present including team manager Faye Green.
An awards ceremony for the tournament was held last Sunday during the church’s usual worship service. In attendance were netball association president Lucille Seymour and Treasurer Norma Ferryman. Seymour gave a brief speech about the importance of netball to the Cayman community.
“Netball has a great value to the community and I’m proud of Mrs. Green and her netball club who helped organize the tournament,” Seymour said. “Mrs. Green and I go way back and she has rubbed off in many ways such as sparking my Christian faith. Unity is helping young people do more than walk with the devil. Her club has really put her teeth into the community in a positive way.”
