After triumphing in the table tennis two weeks ago, Chapel returned last Wednesday at the Victoria Park, to cop the softball cricket title.

In a lopsided final, Chapel chalked up 67 for 7, in their ten overs, then dismissed B Block for 34.

Romell Baptiste was the star of the day, with both bat and ball. He made a top score of 35, then returned with the ball with the amazing figures of 6 for 3.

Baptiste was undoubtedly, the Player of the Final. He also copped the award for the highest individual score.

Israel Baptiste had the highest aggregate in the competition, 97.

Preceding the final was the third place play off between Associated and C Block. Associated took the third spot, with a 27 run win. Associated made 67 for 4, in their allotted 10 overs. C Block replied with 37.

With two titles under their belt, Chapel should be looking towards the other three disciplines, Football Basketball, and Athletics.

The football segment was slated to commence yesterday, Thursday, also at the Victoria Park.

The Inter Correctional Games are part of the institution’s rehabilitation programme.

Into its second year, the Games are a partnership between the Department of Sports in the Ministry of Tourism, Youth and Sports and the authorities at the Prisons.(RT)
