Juniors squash the competition
The Barbados team won three gold medals with Meagan Best taking the Girls’ Under-13 title, Khamal Cumberbatch capturing the Boys’ Under-13 crown and Gylla Mackenzie copping the Girls’ Under-17 championship.
Talented Amanda Haywood put in a sterling performance to win the silver medal in the Under-15 Girls’ competition.
The boys’ and girls’ teams took the bronze medal by defeating hosts Trinidad and Tobago. A beaming coach Rhett Cumberbatch told Barbados TODAY on his arrival at the Grantley Adams International Airport yesterday that he was extremely proud of the team’s performance.
Last year the girls placed sixth and the boys seventh, Cumberbatch, who was in charge of the team for the first time, said he expected even better results next year. (DH)
