UWI Games get off
The University of the West Indies Inter-Campus Staff Games 2012 have got off to a rousing start with the Cave Hill Campus in dominant form in several disciplines on their home courts.
The Cave Hill ladies came up against their St Augustine counterparts in netball on Monday and defeated them 20-12.
The story was basically the same when Cave Hill took on Mona Campus in basketball and swamped them 70-36 in an encounter where the ‘home’ team led throughout.
In a two-best of three volleyball encounter, Cave Hill again came out on top of St Augustine 2-1.
The Cave Hill players continued their winning ways when they took to the tennis tables, blanking the Open Campus 6-0 in a one-sided table tennis affair.
However, Cave Hill’s athletes have not had things their own way. On Sunday at the National Stadium, St Augustine dominated the track and field meet, tallying 273 points to Mona’s 225. Cave Hill was a distant third with 120 points, while the Open Campus ended with 11.
In a lawn tennis match-up, St Augustine gave Mona a 5-0 thrashing.
The games continue tomorrow morning with lawn tennis featuring St Augustine and the Open Campus at First Caribbean, Wildey, at 8 a.m. At 10 a.m. there will be basketball between Mona and the Open Campus at UWI.
At 4.30 p.m. the grounds at Texaco should be abuzz when Cave Hill clash with the Open Campus in football. At 6 p.m. Cave Hill’s ladies take on the Open Campus in netball at the UWI hard courts, and at 7 p.m. Cave Hill and St Augustine will feature in a basketball match-up, also at the UWI hard courts.
The evening’s activities will culminate with a volleyball match at 8 p.m. between Cave Hill and the Open Campus at Cave Hill Campus.
