Volleyball captain confident


Multitalented?sports person Tia Jones is optimistic the Barbados team will perform at a high enough level to capture the Caribbean Youth Volleyball crown in St Croix.
Captain Jones, who was a key member of the Alleyne School team which won both the Super Centre League and Knockout titles, has been selected to the junior team which will play in the CVC following the youth games.  
However, the upbeat player has to return home to head off to St Vincent to represent Barbados at the Caribbean Under-16 Netball Championship.
Alleyne teammate Ashley Marshall will also be missing the junior segment as she too, will be heading off to netball in St Vincent.
The other members of the youth team are Janina Mayers, Kayla James, Dominique Best and Gabriella Mitchell of Queen’s College; Tiffani Smith and Kayla Richards of Combermere; Ashley Jordan of Harrison College; Deandra Small of the Garrison; Danielle Callender of Deighton Griffith Secondary, and Mya Evelyn of Parkinson Memorial.
“Our coaches Shennel Pooler and Jonae Rima have been working very hard with the team and the girls have shown great improvement over the time of training. Once we implement what we have been taught, I am confident that the girls will make Barbados proud,” said Jones.
Evelyn, libero Mayers, Smith, Richards and Small will remain in St Croix to join up with the arriving junior players.
The championship runs from April 6 to 11.
