Sports — 01 November 2013

There will be no third game this Friday in the best-of-3 games championship finals series in the Central Secondary Schools Sports Association 2013 volleyball tournament for females and males. That is because yesterday at Bird’s Isle, both SCA girls and SJC boys made it a 2-0 sweep of their opponents to clinch the CSSSA titles.

In game 1 of the female finals on Monday, SCA breezed past Belize High School (BHS) in straight sets, 25-12, 25-12, 25-7. (They play a best-of-5 sets in the finals.) And in the males finals game 1, SJC also made light work of Ladyville Technical High (LTH), also beating them in 3 sets, 25-15, 25-15, 25-10.

In game 2 of the female finals yesterday, the amazing SCA dynasty added one more notch to their spectacular record of championships, when they defeated a game BHS in straight sets, 25-11, 25-17, 25-22, to win what some fans are claiming is their 18th overall and 5th consecutive CSSSA championship. However, BHS made an exciting game of it in the third set, in which they were actually tied at 20-20, before SCA took the lead and eventually won. Sister Margaret conceded after the game that BHS gave them the most competitive game of the whole season.

In the male finals game 2, SJC clinched the championship, defeating Ladyville Tech in straight sets, 27-25, 25-20, 25-22.

SCA girls and SJC boys will therefore represent the Central Zone in the volleyball Nationals, scheduled for next Friday and Saturday, November 8-9, at the SJC gym.
