Sep 30, 2012 Sports Comments Off on GTC/PM 1 maintains winning streak
The youthful and energetic GTC/PM 1 volleyball team continued their dominance of volleyball in Berbice when they defeated all the other teams in a tournament played last Sunday (September 23rd) at the Kilcoy – Chesney Community Centre Ground on the Corentyne.
The tournament attracted six teams, namely: Albion United, GTC/PM 1 and 2, Rollers of New Amsterdam, 3 Door Strikers of D’Edward and Port Mourant Jaguars.
GTC/PM 1 only lost one set to Rollers but defeated all the others in straight sets to capture the first place trophy donated by the Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club (RHTY&SC).
Port Mourant Jaguars placed second in the ‘round robin’ competition to win the trophy donated by Tony Gavaskar Amerally of Memorex Cricket Club.
GTC/PM 1 was spearheaded by brilliant spiking by Quacy Matherson and Creston Rodney and ‘on spot’ setting by captain Jason Seelochan.
The tournament was organized by promoter Ravi Narine of the RHTY&SC in collaboration with the Berbice Volleyball Association (BVA).
The early rounds commenced at 3:00pm (15:00hrs) and were played in blistering sunshine, while the latter rounds were played under floodlights simultaneously with softball cricket involving males and females. The tournament concluded at 10:35pm (22:35hrs) and immediately after, trophies were presented by a representative of the promoter.
In brief remarks before the presentation, BVA president Gregory Rambarran, thanked the promoter and the sponsors of the trophies, and congratulated the players and spectators for their good behaviour, noting that some had witnessed a volleyball tournament for the very first time.
The MVP trophy went to Quacy Matherson of GTC/PM 1 and the best setter trophy to Jason Seelochan also of GTC/PM 1.
