Press Release:-The festive atmosphere which greeted patrons when entering the Vigie Multi Purpose Sports Complex on Saturday December 3rd, was indicitive of a school’s party but it was not, as it was the closing of the Shamrock Sports Club Netball Fiesta Shamfest 2K 16.
Cheering students,parents and the public came out to support their respective teams.
Here are the results of the action on court.
In the Shooting competition -Shakira John from Toughest emerged as the winner.
In the first encounter of the afternoon SJC Egrets(u-16 Champions) (24) defeated a combined team (9)
In the grand finale it was predictably a keenly fought encounter between Sir Arthur Lewis Community College and the Shamrock Sports Club as some of the Shamrock players including Jermiah Evariste,Genesis Alfred,plus the injured Rochelle Etienne are all students of Sir Arthur.
There was a nice ebb and flow about the encounter as in the early minutes Shamrock attempted to dominate the proceedings by gaining a slight lead however, due to the vociferous urging of SALCC’s trainer Gilroy Hall, and coach Wayne Benti, Sir Arthur clawed their way back and in fact were tied with Shamrock at the beginning of the third quarter.
Shamrock though were able to maintain their slender lead throughout the final quarter largely due to some expert technical advise from the bench by coach Maryann Montoute, and Errol Montoute a former netball coach of the decade dominance Shamrock Netball teams during the late 80’s and early 90’s.
