The title for Warriors CC marked a good year for them thus far, having placed second in the SVG Teachers Co-operative Credit Union Hillview competition.
The eight-month-old Warriorsâ sights are on the Greiggs competition, as they seek to make an impression on softball cricket in St Vincent and the Grenadines.
