Young Saint Lucian Cricketer Excels

by Terry Finisterre

A young Saint Lucian excelled in the ninth and final series of matches in the Barbados Cricket Association (BCA) Elite division three-day Championship, concluded last Sunday.

Johnnel Eugene, son of former Saint Lucia, Windward Islands, West Indies ‘A’ and Spartan batsman, John Eugene, hit 95 as last year’s BCA champions, Sagicor Life University of the West Indies (UWI) Blackbirds made 303 all out off 81 overs against Carlton at Desmond Haynes Oval. UWI won the toss.

Left-hander Eugene’s knock lasted 237 minutes, 179 balls, with nine fours and one six. This was at least the third time this season that Eugene has made a half-century in the BCA 3-day competition.

Eugene, Saint Lucia’s former Junior Cricketer and Junior Sportsman of the Year, is an alumnus of Sir Ira Simmons Secondary School. He has played youth cricket for the West Indies, and was a former Windward Islands youth captain.
