On Tuesday, the left coast were crowned kings of Under-19 schools cricket, Soufriere Comprehensive dismissing St Mary’s College in the final of the Massy United competition.
On Wednesday, it was the turn of the Under-15’s, with Babonneau Secondary coming up against Choiseul Secondary at the Beausejour Cricket Stadium.
Choiseul won the toss and batted, making 137 all out in 23.5 overs. Hanif Antoine hit 40, Karvey Rosemond an unbeaten 32. Babonneau’s Tarick Francis took two for seven, Cuthbert McVane two for 31.
Needing 138 to win their first ever under-15 title, Babonneau Secondary looked to their school motto, “Unlocking The Potential Within.”
Kimani Melius has certainly been unlocking his potential. The Saint Lucia Under-15 captain and Windward Islands Under-17 player hit yet another half century to guide his team to victory.
Having scored 48, 68 and 87 in the three matches prior to the final, the Babonneau skipper struck nine boundaries and seven sixes in an innings of 93 runs, leading Babonneau to victory in just the 11th over, finishing on 138 for 1.
The awards and prizes for outstanding performances and achievements will be presented during the Ministry of Youth Development and Sports Schools Sports Awards Ceremony, scheduled to take place at the Marigot Secondary School on Friday.
