MONTEGO BAY (JIS):Minister without portfolio in the Ministry of Economic Growth and Job Creation, Office of the Prime Minister (OPM), Dr Horace Chang, has endorsed the third staging of the MoBay City Run, which is held annually to raise funds for needy tertiary students in western Jamaica.Speaking during the recent launch at the St James Parish Council’s chambers in Montego Bay, Chang said the event’s goal is consistent with the Government’s commitment to making tertiary education more accessible to students by providing them with financing options.In noting that the Government’s policy for training aims to ensure that young people are provided with a secondary education “without any significant cost”, Chang said efforts by many students to access tertiary education often incurred “a major expense”.Against this background, Chang, who is the Member of Parliament for North Western St James – where the event will be staged – lauded the MoBay City Run’s Organising Committee for its efforts over the past two years in assisting tertiary students experiencing financial challenges.He noted that Montego Bay has a significant number of talented and academically brilliant youngsters, many of whom struggle to maintain their enrolment in tertiary institutions in western Jamaica, and encouraged corporate entities and other stakeholders to support the fundraising event.ESSENTIAL INGREDIENT”Any effort to support the students is welcome and will be supported by me both at the local and national (level) as an educated population is the most essential ingredient to developing our society,” he stated.He also said the MoBay City Run has the potential to boost Jamaica’s foreign exchange earnings by broadening the range of tourism product offerings to international participants and fans of the event.”This kind of activity does engage a significant number of visitors, and these marathons and athletics events have become part of the travel industry just like entertainment and food,” the minister added.Organising committee chairperson Janet Silvera hopes to raise in excess of $6 million to fund bursaries and scholarships to assist students attending the University of the West Indies (UWI) and the University of Technology (UTech) western campuses; Sam Sharpe Teachers’ College; and Montego Bay Community College.She said since MoBay City Run’s first staging in 2014, approximately 100 students have benefited each year from the proceeds and added that the committee planned to double the number of beneficiaries this year.Some 3,000 racers are expected to participate in the 5K and 10K run and walk events, set for Sunday, May 1.
It should be a battle-royal when the West Indies Women and England Women meet in the fifth and deciding game of their five-match one-day international ODI) series at Sabina Park today, beginning at 9 30 a.m. The series, which has ebbed and flowed since it got underway two weeks ago, will see both teams entering the contest high on confidence after sharing the other fixtures 2-2. The opener, which was played at the Trelawny Multi-Purpose Stadium, first saw the English narrowly squeezing home by five runs, with the second encounter, also played at the same venue, ending in 38-run victory for the regional side. This trading of wins was to then continue at Sabina Park where England, after posting 220, went on to dismiss the West Indies for a lowly 108 and with it secured a 112- triumph. Not to be outdone, however, the West Indies, on the back of a fine Player-of-the-Match performance from captain Stafanie Taylor, rallied to score a series-high 223 for six off their maximum 50 overs. The English thereafter could only muster 181, thus giving the Caribbean women a 42-run win. ”Going into the series we always thought it would be a close one, as though we recently won the Twenty20 World Cup, we know of the depth and talent of England,” noted Taylor. ”It was therefore good for us to batten down and play some disciplined and basic cricket and for the most part I think we have done that. ”It is just for us now to go in the final game and play our best game of the series and hopefully we will come out of top,” Taylor noted. Leading from the front, Taylor is the leading runs getter for the West Indies with two half-centuries, the last of which, a solid 85, came in the last game. With this in mind, the world’s number one all-rounder will again be looking to fire and will be hoping for support from the likes of opener Shaquana Quintyne, the hard-hitting Deandra Dottin, and former captain and wicketkeeper, Merissa Aguilleira. Bowling-wise, Taylor was also effective in game four with figures of three for 22 bowling her off-spin and will not only look to repeat such a performance, but also hope that her frontline bowlers will pull their weight. These include pacer Shamilia Connell, all-rounder Dottin and leg-spinner Afy Fletcher. England, in the meantime, will look for most runs from in-form opener Lauren Winfield, who scored back-to-back fifties in the third and fourth matches, her partner Tammy Beaumont, who hit 57 in the last game and captain Heather Knight and Natalie Sciver, their two most fearsome batters. As it relates to their bowling, the usually accurate left-arm spinner, Alex Hartley, opening seamer Katherine Brunt and pacer Jenny Gunn should shoulder responsibilities. – CMC
“We are good this year because of our commitment, our togetherness, and we are going for all trophies,” he reiterated, adding that his school might be “underrated” against Kingston schools, but they will come to give their best. “I want to lead my team to all four trophies because they think we can’t win them,” stressed the game-winning skipper. The Clarendon-based school were last daCosta Cup winners in 2014. However, they were stopped from copping the double Olivier Shield by corporate area kingpins JC. The Clarendon team is coached by Paul ‘Tegat’ Davis, managed by Richard ‘Richie P’ Palmer, with Lenworth ‘Lenny’ Hyde as the assistant coach. “They (JC) beat me 2014 in the Olivier Shield and now I’ve taken back my revenge. No fear playing JC. JC isn’t a top-class team like a Barcelona. It’s just another team like every other school,” he reasoned, while crediting teamwork for the win. Captain Creggton Charlton, the tip of the Clarendon College (CC) attacking pyramid, is ready to lead his school to schoolboy football supremacy and “win all four trophies this season”. He is on a high now, having scored the 1-0 winner at the 50th minute over 2014 champions and last season’s beaten finalists, Jamaica College (JC), in the Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA)-FLOW Super Cup at Sabina Park on Saturday. “The season is going well. We are undefeated so far and we are gonna win the (daCosta Cup, FLOW Super Cup, Ben Francis and Olivier Shield), all four titles,” pointed out the confident player, who is eyeing 25 goals. “Yes, we can win all four. I am trying to score at least 25 goals this season. I will try to put away my chances and try to bond my team together so we can achieve our goals,” he told The Gleaner. Courtesy of the forward’s heroics, CC progressed to the quarter-finals, where they will play Excelsior High next Saturday. Going for everything
