The island’s leading financial institution has congratulated Saint Lucian high jumper and Olympic prospect Jeannelle Scheper for her record-breaking performance at a recent meet on New York.

Scheper, who is a sophomore at the University of South Carolina, was one of the outstanding young persons featured in ECFH’s 2013 calendar titled, “The Promise of a brighter tomorrow”.

Scheper slowly outlasted a field of 15 in the high jump competition, and her clearance at 5’10 ¾ (1.80m) made her just one of three women remaining in the event. The bar then was moved to 6’0 (1.83m), one centimeter higher than her previous school record mark set exactly three weeks ago in the season opener at the Virginia Tech Invitational.

Scheper responded by clearing the bar on her third attempt, letting out a cheer that was drowned out by the cheers of her teammates, which quickly spread throughout The Armory Track Center.

Acting Group Managing Director of ECFH Esther Browne in an email to Scheper expressed the pride and appreciation of the board, management and staff of ECFH.

“It is with great pride that ECFH congratulates you for your consistent high level of performance, as one of Saint Lucia’s rising stars in the field of sports. We hail your record breaking achievement as a special one, since you were one of the young persons highlighted in our calendar for your achievements and we share in your celebration. We wish you all the best as you continue to represent your country in your pursuit of excellence both academically and in athletics.”

Scheper  is now one of seven women to ever clear 6’0 in the women’s high jump in the 11-year history of the New Balance Collegiate Invitational.

  2. You are wrong En Rouge. The company is merely celebrating new and upcoming talent. We support Spencer the same way we support, Darren Sammy, Johnson Charles, Dalton Polius, Gary Mathurin and the likes. You need to wake up and smell the coffee. Not everything is as negative as you see it!

  3. En Rouge you have it wrong Spencer isn't gone she has never left the blocks when it comes to big game day performances ok. if you see there's another talented Lucian out there who has the potential don't try to big her up to see what she can do. What you trying to say is look up to Spencer only. Let's go Ms.Scheper who know she might just bring in the medal that Spencer couldn't work the nerves up to bring us.
