first_imgJ.C Chandisingh Secondary School beat CCHS to lift titleTHE Area ‘H’ Ground was filled to capacity on Wednesday last with school children as the Berbice Cricket Board/ Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club hosted the 6th edition of the Bakewell sponsored Naeem Nasir Memorial Cricket Tournament.Six schools participated in the tournament- Berbice High School, Berbice Educational Institute, Lower Corentyne Secondary, Corentyne Comprehensive Secondary, J.C Chandisingh Secondary (JCCSS) and Port Mourant Secondary. The tournament was sponsored by Bakewell in memory of its founder and late Chief Executive Officer, Naeem Nasir.RHTYSC vice- president Mark Papannah hands over the trophy and prize to JCCSS captain, Jonathan Rampersaud.In the opening round of Matches- Port Mourant Secondary defeated Berbice Educational Institute by nine runs, J.C Chandisingh Secondary cruised past Berbice High School by 19 runs while Corentyne Comprehensive defeated Lower Corentyne by 18 runs.Among the outstanding performers in the first round were Guyana junior players, Tameshwar Mohabir, Jonathan Rampersaud, Mahendra Gopilall and Abdool Ramsammy.In the lone semi-finals, Port Mourant were bundled out by JCCSS for a disappointing 26 with the impressive Lucas Arthur taking four wickets for two runs, Christopher Deroop 2 for 5 and Pavendra Ganesh 2 for 2.Jonathan Rampersaud then blasted a quick 20 not out to lead his team to the finals.

Greaves thinks 85 per cent of cyclists will drop form due to COVID-19 lockdown

first_img–former National rider says athletes should be tested in the future to ensure safetyBy Clifton Ross ALONZO Greaves, one of Guyana’s most experienced cyclists believes that about 85 percent of his teammates will fall back on their form due to lack of real-time training, adding that he hopes measures are in place to properly provide COVID-19 testing for athletes in the future.In an exclusive interview with Chronicle Sport on Monday, Greaves, a decorated local and international cyclist for a number of years, said he was worried about his fraternity. He said that as a professional rider, your main source of practice comes from road-racing, something he said is the closest thing to actually being involved in a competitive race.Greaves pointed out that real-time training is a key part of a cyclists training regime, as it helps to buff the conditioning of a rider while helping to increase stamina.“I think some guys are going to lose fitness because you prepare to train for upcoming year and the guys were training before the New Year started. They will fall back a lot; I think about 85 per cent of them. Some of the guys will be at home, while others will be with home trainers and they will get fed up eventually because most guys will want to do road racing to better their performances”, Greaves explained.While actual training is key, Greaves said that cyclists in Guyana are at a disadvantage compared to riders internationally who have been staying fit by virtue of virtual training and, as such, that too adds to the shortcomings which will hamper local cyclists.“Since COVID-19, not just in Guyana but worldwide, professional cyclists have been doing online training in order to stay fit during lockdown. We don’t have that technology here in Guyana to help keep us fit down here, so I think that too will throw the rider back a bit,” said Greaves.The veteran cyclist, who is currently recovering from a leg injury, added that one way around the limited training schedule is for riders to have their own home-trainer. Greaves said the piece of equipment is all a cyclist needs to keep his or herself in peak condition while experiencing the same results as real-time racing.“If I were racing right now, I would have been training at home on my trainer. Not everyone has a home-trainer so as a cyclist you have to invest in one, so when COVID-19 is finished you will have the fitness to compete and you will also have the advantage over the other guys who were probably not working,” said the veteran biker.Wearing his businessman’s cap, Greaves said he thinks it will be difficult for the newer generation of cyclists to attract major sponsorship, something he said is very crucial when in the early stages of building one’s career.“I think now business is really slow and the private sector will feel it because they are the ones that usually invest in our sport. When I riding, I used to approach sponsors with my letters, but now it’s harder for the youngsters to get sponsorship because you have to start spacing and doing well to get your name out. When your name isn’t out there, you can’t just go to businesses for sponsorship; you will need to win races because businesses will be expecting returns; so it will be tough for the youths coming up”.Concluding his interview, the 2014 Commonwealth and world participant said he was looking ahead to what will happen post covid-19 with regards to how things will flow. He was also advocating for those in authority to put measures in place to help provide testing for local athletes, given the possibility of a potential second wave of the virus.“I think after all of this, when people start moving around freely again, people will come out and support sports, entertainment or other activities. I also think that they will continue to practice the same safety guidelines now but I don’t believe gathering can happen right away.He continued, “To protect our athletes, I think the persons involved in the COVID-19 committee should set up something to test athletes. They should visit the respective sports committees and associations in order to plan a way forward when it comes to testing and monitoring local athletes in the future”. Greaves ended.last_img read more

Louis Cross develops as leader for Syracuse’s young defense

first_imgAs Syracuse’s offense advanced down the field, defender Miles Robinson drifted toward the midfield to pick up an opposing forward. Louis Cross found himself filing in behind Robinson near the sideline.“Go take your spot, Louis,” head coach Ian McIntyre yelled, before the junior defender obliged.Cross’ spot this year is at the center back position, and for the first time, he’s the full-time anchor of SU’s defense.  His place on the team has changed, too. He’s an upperclassman and has been forced to be a leader and mentor to the two freshmen defenders — Robinson and Kamal Miller — starting on either side of him on the backline.“He’s the engine in our team,” Miller, the left back, said. “When we don’t have Louis, it’s definitely a big hole in our team. He’s a rock. He keeps us together.”Cross spent his freshman year at Akron, where he started 13 games for the Zips, then transferred to Syracuse and played in just eight games (five starts) last year. He often watched from the sideline as SU’s back line of Skylar Thomas, Jordan Murrell and Tyler Hilliard helped to shut out 12 opponents.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWhen he did see the field, he had veteran players on defense with him.But the departure of the trio left Cross to command the defense with limited experience.“It was just kind of something he had to fit into right away just because we lost so many guys last year and we have so many new guys,” midfielder Liam Callahan said.Cross has guided Miller through his training since the freshman arrived at SU. Miller “likes to have a bit of a moan” when the experienced defender offers advice, Cross said.When a ball has landed dangerously inside the box, Cross is usually the one to clear it away. On set pieces, he yells and points to Miller and Robinson, directing them where to go in the one aspect of the game where the young defense seems most vulnerable.He isn’t prone to make the mistakes under pressure that freshmen are, McIntyre said.“Louis’ played an important role,” McIntyre said. “He’s never really flustered. He’s  pretty laid back.”“Sometimes I think he’s asleep,” McIntyre said with a laugh.Cross’ teammates joke that he’s is the most quiet English person they’ve ever met, but he’s trying to become more of a vocal presence on the field.In a Sept. 4 win over UC Riverside, Cross intercepted a pass and kicked it forward to two SU midfielders,  but neither came to the ball and it was turned over. Cross waved his hands at his side and yelled, “Come on.”When forwards slip behind Miller and Robinson, Cross yells to get them back in position.“(Robinson and Miller) have been college players for two weeks, so it helps to have someone back there with experience,” McIntyre said.Though Cross’ new role on the team may be somewhat unfamiliar to him, it’s one that the Orange needs him to fill. He’s overcoming his quiet nature to assert himself.“He’s starting to become a leader on this team,” Callahan said. “He’s starting to mold himself into a person who opens his mouth and helps everything keep organized.” Comments Published on September 8, 2015 at 10:37 pm Contact Jon: jrmettus@syr.edu | @jmettus Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
