Confronted with vocal crowd support for home girls Topsidaz, gurus of the competition for the past four years, Valley Netters had to dig deep to win 43-41, and fittingly brought the 2011 edition to a close.

In the process, Valley Netters completed the double, having earlier pouched the league title.

Also completing the double last Saturday evening was Spotlight Girls, who secured the Under-17, beating Bottle and Glass 25-21.

In the Senior Division, the Best Defensive Player was Naomi Williams of Star Girls, with Valley Netters’ Zipporah Millington, the Best Mid Court Player, and Juliette Williams, also of Valley Netters, the top shooter.

In the Under-17, the Best Defensive Player was Veltrina Fraser of Spotlight Girls, with the Best Mid Court Player being Karis Mc Kie of Future Stars. Janiel Ferdinand of Spotlight Girls was the top shooter.

The Most Promising Player was Tracia James of Future Stars.

Hill View was voted the Most Disciplined Team and the Most Valuable Player of each of the competing teams was rewarded.

Interim President of the Barrouallie Sports Association Lorson Lewis, speaking at the closing ceremony, thanked the sponsors Western Union, and made a plea for the relationship to continue.

Lewis expressed the need for discipline to be at the forefront of sports and stated that all sporting disciplines need to continue to work hard at making sports respectable.

Shonella Llewellyn, on behalf of the sponsors, expressed her company’s pleasure in partnering with Barrouallie Sports Association, and pledged to continue sponsoring the competition as they hope to give back to the rural communities as part of their way of uplifting societies, with sports being the avenue in this area.
