This one’s memorable, historic – Clarke

first_imgLast year Calabar High matched their best ever winning streak at the annual Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA)/GraceKennedy Boys and Girls’ Athletic Championships, when they won their fourth successive crown. On Saturday, the Red Hills Road-based school lifted the Mortimer Geddes Trophy for the fifth time on the bounce, when they beat away the challenge of perennial rivals Kingston College (KC) to gain their 26th hold. For head coach, Clarke, last year was his first time winning four straight and after extending it to five-in-a-row on Saturday, the tactician described the victory as ‘memorable’ and says plans are in place for the school to go on and claim a sixth straight championship. “This is a memorable one, very historic. The school in its history has never done five straight before. KC is a talented team, very well coached, but today (Saturday) was our day. But that’s championships for you,” Clarke commented amid the team’s celebrations on the running track. “But it’s not so much for me, it’s for the school. They have never gone five straight, so that’s historic. For me it’s also quite an achievement and I am quite pleased by the success. “We are always planning ahead, like three years ahead so it’s quite a possibility,” he said about winning next year. 15 TITLES Clarke has won a combined 15 Boys’ Champs titles with three different schools. He won his first championship with St Jago in 1988; then moved to Jamaica College where he won seven titles. He won his first double in 1991-92 with the Old Hope Road-based school and his first triple with the ‘Dark Blues’ from 1998-2000. He joined his alma mater, Calabar, in 2003 and saw them to back-to-back titles in 2007 and 2008. Last year he claimed his first four-peat and now he has won five straight titles for the first time. “I am humbled by the success and I give God thanks for it as well,” he told The Gleaner. Calabar finished with 287.50 points, well clear of KC, 250, and JC, 227.50.last_img read more

McLaughlin-Whilby looks for success in 400m

first_imgAnneisha McLaughlin-Whilby, who in her first Olympics last year copped silver with Jamaica’s 4x400m women’s relay team, returned to training last week with her sights set on the 400m at next year’s IAAF World Championships in London next year. The former Holmwood Technical standout, now a 30-year-old wife, last summer, copped an all important medal which was, no doubt, the missing part of a very resplendent youth career. “I started training this week, so I am very excited. I would say I had a wonderful season last year; 2016 was good for me and a comeback year for me,” she outlined. “I made my first Olympic team and I got a silver medal in the women’s 4x400m,” the athlete continued, in company of her number-one fan and husband Jamaica Defence Force (JDF) Captain Cortess Whilby. They were present at a ceremony for the country’s Olympic and Paralympic athletes at the National Indoor Sports Centre last Saturday night. “I definitely think my best is yet to come seeing as I changed to the 400m, so the room for improvement is great, and I am just looking forward to next season,” she continued. “Personally, I don’t really set short-term goals. I do it one step at a time as the season progresses. I don’t really have times that I would like to meet; I just look to go out there and compete to do my best and surpass my previous marks,” she told The Gleaner. In 2002, the talented athlete was awarded the Austin Sealy Trophy for the most outstanding athlete of the Carifta Games. However, she never made the expected transition onto the world stage. She finished fifth in the 200m final at the 2009 IAAF World Championships and reached the Commonwealth Games final also, then dropped the 200m to pursue the 400m at the National trials prior to the Rio Olympics. She is still working with high school coach Maurice Wilson. “I just hope to train hard and stay injury free and, hopefully, I will make the World Championships team,” added the athlete. She was backed by a husband who is also the JDF’s sports team captain. “It was a good feeling when she and her team picked up that medal. I’m hoping for the best for her. She did well this season and we are looking for better next season, hopefully God is on her side and she stays injury free and will pull through with gold,” Captain Whilby pointed out. He noted that he will be hoping to travel to London to support his wife. “Well, my boss is here. Hopefully, there is nothing in the country that requires me here, and, hopefully, I can go,” he remarked. “I do think she has her best to come.” HARD WORK AHEADlast_img read more

United we stand

Mikee Romero, NLEX governor and PBA vice chair Ramoncito Fernandez, Phoenix governor Raymond Zorilla, Kia governor Bobby Rosales, Blackwater governor Silliman Sy, San Miguel Beer governor RobertNon and Barangay Ginebra governor Alfrancis Chua. —EARVIN PERIASIn the strongest indication yet that the Philippine Basketball Association is ready to put behind it a leadership crisis that roused fears of a delayed season start, two officials belonging to the two factions of the board vowed to steer the league toward a bigger and better year for hoop fans.Rep. Mikee Romero, the PBA chair, said that the board stands united behind pushing for the league’s continued progress, adding that the league would showcase the only thing that matters when it opens on Dec. 17.ADVERTISEMENT Also present were Robert Non of San Miguel, Alfrancis Chua of Ginebra, Rene Pardo of Magnolia, Dickie Bachmann of Alaska, Mert Mondragon of Rain or Shine, Raymond Zorrilla of Phoenix, Silliman Sy of Blackwater, Bobby Rosales of Kia, alternate governor Ryan Gregorio of Meralco, and TNT assistant team manager Magnum Membrere. All 12 representatives sat at one table, a watershed moment considering the friction caused by the split the past two months.“I think we’re a very solid group at this point in time. Business as usual,” Romero said.Narvasa was also present, but he was on a separate table with other league officials.He had virtually nothing to say in an event where, in the past, commissioners usually run the show, opting to hand the reins to the governors. The league made it clear beforehand that questions regarding Narvasa’s tenure would not be addressed during the press conference, but Romero said that the governors would deal with their problems internally.“We [decided] that we will have one voice, not just for the 12 teams but for the Philippine fans of basketball,” said Romero. “We want to be one voice in representing the whole PBA.”And there seems to be still a lot for the board to discuss. At the end of the presser, the governors left in two separate groups, with the seven-team bloc that wants Narvasa out exiting ahead of the five-team group seeking to retain him as commissioner.At the very least, however, the board has shown a semblance of unity and it promises the fans that basketball at the highest level will be available to them despite the leadership crisis.“We will assure the fans that we will provide the same entertainment, the same basketball fun that we have always provided,” promised Romero.And the board will continue to find ways to improve the league.“Definitely the biggest value of PBA is entertainment. As long as we make the matchups competitive, this will make the PBA more valuable,” Fernandez said.

But unlike during the awards night, Romero had another voice backing his vow—and it came from the other side of the fence, a strong indication that the board is heading toward the right direction.“What the board promises you is we will have a more exciting year and we’ll continue to delight the millions of fans of the PBA,” said PBA vice chair Ramoncito Fernandez of NLEX. “We promise that with your support, we will continue to make the PBA very relevant to the Filipinos.”Fernandez was supposed to assume chairmanship of the board this season, but due to an apparent boycott by clubs associated with one of the warring blocs, the annual board meeting in Los Angeles that was also to serve as the turnover ceremony didn’t push through, leaving the structure of the board in status quo.The warring groups, split over the tenure of commissioner Chito Narvasa, couldn’t seem to find a compromise to work on, giving rise to fears that the season opener would be pushed back at least a month—or postponed indefinitely.Romero and Fernandez were among the 10 governors who showed up for the meeting to quash that apprehension. The two other teams were represented by other officials.ADVERTISEMENT Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours ‘The Two Popes’ movie explores depth of faith, frailties of man PLAY LIST 01:28‘The Two Popes’ movie explores depth of faith, frailties of man03:53Pope Francis ushers in Christmas with message of ‘unconditional love’03:53Pope Francis ushers in Christmas with message of ‘unconditional love’02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Jo Koy: My brain always wants to think funny Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’center_img OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ‘a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Margot Robbie talks about filming ‘Bombshell’s’ disturbing sexual harassment scene McKenzie upends top seed twice, clinches 3 PPS crowns in Argao It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson “This Sunday, what we should be watching are the players, the superstars of Philippine basketball,” Romero told sports journalists during the preseason press conference for the 43rd season of Asia’s oldest play-for-pay league Wednesday at Okada Manila.“Hindi pwedeng mawala ang PBA sa Pilipino, or ang Pilipino mawala sa PBA (We can never take the PBA from the Filipino, or the Filipino from the PBA),” he added, guaranteeing an opening ceremony at Smart Araneta Coliseum on Sunday.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folk“Admittedly there were a lot of Filipino fans that were turned off and they should be.

Govt urged to introduce CAPE at other secondary schools

first_imgThe Education Ministry was on Tuesday challenged by Region Four Regional Chairperson, Genevieve Allen, to introduce Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE) at other secondary schools that have been performing well.In particular, the regional chairperson said CAPE should be introduced at the Annandale and Diamond Secondary Schools – East Coast and East Bank Demerara respectively – as a result of their outstanding performances over the past years.Region Four Regional Chairperson, Genevieve AllenShe made the call at the region’s Education Department Regional Award Ceremony held at the National Cultural Centre (NCC) on Tuesday.“I want to challenge the Department of Education, Region Four and the Ministry of Education, that we only have the President’s College that offers CAPE examination within our region. I am quite sure that because Diamond Secondary has been excelling over the years, along with Annandale Secondary, that want in our projection that either both of those schools or one of those schools, that it should be proposed that they begin to enter our students in the CAPE examination,” she said.Allen posited that there have been major improvements in the education sector over the years as she congratulated the officials for their hard work.Parents were also reminded of the integral role they play in the lives of their children, and that they should continue to work with them to see further improvements.Education Minister Nicolette Henry“I want to encourage all of us to work with our schools at the National Grade Six level. All of our parents will wish, hope and pray that your child is awarded a place at the Queen’s College, or one of the senior secondary schools. I want to remind us that all of us have varying levels of skills and abilities, and I want to urge us to work with our children so that they too can strive ….” she emphasised.In addition, Tiffany Favourite-Harvey, acting Regional Officer (REO), applauded the efforts of the awardees for their performances, noting that this is made possible due to the hardworking staff of the education department.Among the awardees were St Andrews Primary, for Outstanding Performance at the 2019 NGTA; Covent Garden Primary School, for Most Improved School for NGTA 2019; New Diamond/Grove Primary School for Outstanding Performance for NGFA; NGSA 2019, Swami Purnananda Primary School; and for Most Improved School for NGSA 2019, Cane Grove Secondary.last_img read more

Sala’s body to be returned to Argentina on Friday

first_img0Shares0000Yellow flowers are displayed in front of a portrait of Argentinian forward Emiliano Sala at the Beaujoire stadium in Nantes, France — Sala was traveling from Nantes to his new club Cardiff City when he died © AFP/File / LOIC VENANCEBUENOS AIRES, Argentina, Feb 13 – Argentine footballer Emiliano Sala’s body is to be returned to Argentina on Friday, the mayor of his hometown of Progreso, Julio Muller, told AFP Tuesday.Sala’s body was recovered from plane wreckage in the English Channel last week. He was flying to his new team, English Premier League side Cardiff City, from his old French club Nantes when his plane went missing over the Channel on January 21. Muller said Sala’s body would arrive in the late afternoon and be taken to the gymnasium next to his youth club’s headquarters, where a vigil was scheduled.He said Sala’s “mother, sister and brother have already arrived in Progreso.”British authorities formally identified Sala’s body last week, after which his family said they could “now begin to mourn our son and our brother.”Sala, who was 28, died of “head and trunk injuries,” an inquest in England heard on Monday.He was travelling in a light aircraft that disappeared near the British island of Guernsey.The wreckage was found on the seabed but 59-year-old pilot David Ibbotson remains missing.Sala’s former team gave him a rousing send off on Sunday, playing a French league match in a special all black kit for the occasion, with each player wearing the Argentine’s name on the back of their jersey rather than their own.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

CASE AGAINST DANCE TEACHER PUT ON HOLD AS VICTIM CHALLENGES HOUSE OWNERSHIP

first_imgA High Court action by a Donegal woman abused as a child by her Irish dancing teacher has been put on hold to await the result of his Supreme Court appeal.
Michael Quigley of Barnhill Park, Letterkenny is challenging a ruling from last year that ordered him to pay 42-year-old Dana Doherty €400,000 damages.Her lawyers say the former printer and dance teacher has not paid her any of the award and has claimed that he is a man of no means. He is retired form his job and has no regular means of income.She claims he got a substantial payment when he took voluntary redundancy as a printer with the Derry Journal in the late 1990s, and had also made good money from his dancing classes in Derry and Letterkenny.They are now challenging the transfer of two houses owned by Mr Quigley to his wife Alice in 1998 and 2000 in which no money changed hands.Both sides have now agreed to adjourn the case until after his appeal.Mr Quigley, 69, had sought to keep his identity a secret during the case but Ms Doherty won the right to name her abuser.Through her solcitor, Ms Doherty, had said she hopes the relevant authorities in Irish dancing circles, on hearing her story, will ensure all necessary steps are taken to protect children under their care.By taking this civil action, Ms Doherty had at last had her voice heard and she was eternally grateful to two fellow Irish dancers who came forward to corroborate her evidence, he said.Mr Quigley has always maintained his innocence.CASE AGAINST DANCE TEACHER PUT ON HOLD AS VICTIM CHALLENGES HOUSE OWNERSHIP was last modified: July 6th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:DANA DOHERTYIrish dance teacherMICHAEL QUIGLEYsex abuselast_img read more

Joe Hart is a good fit for Everton, Liverpool or Man United, talkSPORT told

first_imgJoe Hart should return to the Premier League and would be a good signing for Everton, Liverpool or Manchester United.That is the view of former top flight goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer, who was speaking to Jim White on talkSPORT on Thursday.Hart was shipped out of Manchester City in August, having played just one game this season before Pep Guardiola replaced him with Claudio Bravo.Despite starting his loan spell with Torino strongly, his performances in recent months have been well below par, and he has already conceded 59 league goals with one game left to go.It seems unlikely he will secure a permanent move to Turin, and Schwarzer feels it would be better for Hart to remain in the Premier League.In fact, he named three first division clubs at which Hart could be a good fit.Schwarzer, who made 514 Premier League appearances, said: “I think it’s best for him to be back in the Premier League, I really do.“Which club? There are a number of clubs.“I think Everton would be good fit for him, I’d say Liverpool if they are deciding to change anything in there.“I think Manchester United, if [David] De Gea were to leave. Joe Hart could be a very good fit for Manchester United.”last_img read more

ONE DONEGAL WOMAN’S PLIGHT TO HELP THE PEOPLE OF GAZA TOMORROW

first_imgAs the death toll in Gaza climbs, one Donegal woman is doing her bit to help those less fortunate than ourselves.A coffee morning will be held in the Mevagh Family Resource Centre, Downings tomorrow from 10am to 1pm.All funds raised will be donated directly to the Al Shifa hospital in Gaza who currently urgently require medical supplies and fuel for their generators to keep lighting and life saving equipment powered as the Israeli strike on the power plant has left Gaza without sufficient capabilities to produce electricity. The coffee morning is being organised by local woman Nuala McGurk who is pleading with people to come along.As well as lovely home-baked produce, there will be face-painting and lots of other things to do.So go along and show your solidarity with the people of Gaza.   ONE DONEGAL WOMAN’S PLIGHT TO HELP THE PEOPLE OF GAZA TOMORROW was last modified: August 14th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:coffee morningDowningsGAZAlast_img read more
