East End honours female shooters

Women in East End are being celebrated for their involvement in netball.

The Department of Sports will continue its Honouring Women’s Month activities on Monday, 26 March. A community netball skills and demonstration workshop will take place at the East End Primary School netball court starting at 6:30pm.

Monday’s event is the third in the Honouring Women’s Month series. Its purpose is to highlight girls and women in the East End community. There will be prizes and surprises for participants, who will get an idea of the basics involved with netball.

News of the workshop comes as the sport is in the midst of its national league. Organized by the Cayman Islands Netball Association, games started in January and will continue until late April at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex netball courts.

Over eight teams are currently taking part.

All Stars A, behind veterans like Pauline Bodden and Lyneth Monteith, are the top side with an unbeaten record with Rising Stars A (behind talents like Rosemarie Wilson) and Roma A (featuring star shooter Kay Copeland) not far behind. B division kudos seems to be a foregone conclusion for All Stars B, who sport talents like Karen Smith-James, as they are the only
 B team with a winning record.

The Department of Sports would like to thank East End residents for being receptive to the workshop, including Darrel Rankine who is an individual that guides much of the sports events that take place in that community.

Refreshments will be provided on Monday. For more information, e-mail [email protected]
