Jamaica dethrone Barbados of CAZOVA U19 title

first_imgJamaica won the 2015 Caribbean Zonal Volleyball Under-19 championship, de-throning Barbados 25-22, 25-23, 25-16 to win the four-team tournament, their first in international volleyball at any level. The team will now represent CAZOVA in the NORCECA Under -19 tournament to be held sometime between later this year and next year. Jamaica also exacted a measure of revenge on the defending champions, who had beaten them 3-1 on the first day of the tournament, last week Thursday. In Sunday’s final, Jamaica overcame a six-point deficit in what was a keenly contested first set that got the home crowd – consisting mainly of college students – cheering wildly. Barbados began the second set by racing to an 8-2 lead, before a time-out was called. On the resumption, Jamaica went on an eight-one run to lead 10-9. Ten to nine soon became 13-9 as the Jamaicans tried to race to a two-set to love lead. Barbados weren’t having it. The defending champions came into the final on an unbeaten streak of four games and were not going to roll over and die. Spurred by their outside hitter, No. 2 Brandon Callender, who had 18 spikes, and libero Akeel Oxley, Barbados rallied to take the lead 22-18, when Jamaica’s head coach, Steve Davis, called a time-out. Following the break, Jamaica clawed their way back to eke out a close 25-23 win. BRAVE BATTLE Facing the daunting task of winning three straight sets against an opponent growing in confidence as the game went on, Barbados battled bravely, but the influence of tournament MVP Jovan Thomas, Jamaica’s captain, whose nine left-handed spikes were virtually unstoppable; and six from No.8, Shavar James, enabled Jamaica to secure a comfortable 25-16 win to snatch the title. “I am extremely satisfied,” said an elated Davis, following the historic win. “Like I had been saying at the beginning, the guys are young but they are hard working. They never complained; and every training session, they got better, and every game, they got better. “We took a set from Barbados in the first match, and that set was 25-14, so we knew we had what it takes to beat them,” he noted. John Stuart, Barbados’ head coach, said unforced errors proved to be their downfall. “It was unforced errors and too many bad serves,” he said. “In all fairness, Jamaica played better than Barbados and deserved to win.”last_img read more

Lower oil prices grease path for markets to turn higher

first_imgNEW YORK – Falling energy prices gave stocks a modest lift Friday as Wall Street set aside worries about interest rates and a weak forecast from Intel Corp. But the gains weren’t enough to help the major indexes, which ended the week with losses. Stocks zigzagged through most of Friday’s session, capping off a week of jittery trading as investors scoured for any news that might revive a year-end rally after a two-week break. Many are wishing for a solid holiday shopping season, with cheaper gasoline prices contributing to improving consumer confidence. The University of Michigan reinforced those hopes when it said its consumer sentiment index for December added 7.1 points, to 88.7, topping economists’ estimates for a reading of 85. John Waterman, chief investment officer for Rittenhouse Asset Management, noted the upbeat Michigan number but said the market seems to be fixated on energy prices and next week’s Federal Reserve meeting. Now that the economy appears to be back on track, analysts worry that the Fed might keep raising interest rates and trigger a slowdown. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals But Waterman expects Wall Street’s idleness to persist. “I think we’re going to head into a quieter period where unless there’s some big news, volume could slow and the market will move sideways,” he said. At the close of trading, the Dow Jones industrial average gained 23.46, or 0.22 percent, to 10,778.58. Broader stock indicators were also higher. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index was up 3.53, or 0.28 percent, at 1,259.37, and the Nasdaq composite index added 10.27, or 0.46 percent, to 2,256.73. Bond prices fell, with the yield on the 10-year Treasury note climbing to 4.53 percent from 4.46 percent late Thursday. The dollar was lower against other major currencies in European trading, while gold prices lingered near recent highs. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

City Ranch Road, was opened in August. The center provides Antelope Valley residents with a place to drop off electronic waste and household hazardous waste without having to waiting for an occasional “roundup.” The center is a joint project of Los Angeles County, the cities of Palmdale and Lancaster, and Waste Management, which operates the landfill. The High Desert Branch of APWA gave the city’s amphitheater its “Innovative Design of the Year” award. The $1.8 million amphitheater, which opened this summer, is part of a $43 million project funded by a special assessment to create an expanded Marie Kerr Park and the new Oasis Park on the east side. The High Desert Branch of APWA gave the city its “Best Use of Technology” award for the city’s cablecasting and webcasting of City Council meetings. The city started cablecasting its meetings in February and then followed up with webcasts in October. PALMDALE – Palmdale received five awards for public works projects, including two for the new electronic waste and household hazardous waste collection center and one for the city’s new amphitheater. The Southern California Chapter of the American Public Works Association presented awards for the Antelope Valley Environmental Collection Center project and the Avenue R traffic signal fiber-optic interconnect project. The city received three awards from the association’s High Desert Branch for the council chamber cablecasting and webcasting project, the Marie Kerr Park amphitheater project, and for the Antelope Valley Environmental Collection Center project. “We are very pleased to have been recognized by our peers in the public works profession,” said Leon Swain, Palmdale’s director of public works. “This really exemplifies the quality of work that the department is doing.” last_img read more
