Caribbean Volleyball Championships

Barbados Jason Griffith (right) elevates for a powerfull kill against Guadeloupe. Winning a set against the Barbados teams at the Caribbean Volleyball Championships is proving as difficult as getting a no-confidence motion passed against the Government.

The Barbadian lasses survived a minor scare before romping to their third straight-sets victory at the Garfield Sobers Gymnasium on Tuesday night with a 25-20, 25-21, 25-13 triumph over Jamaica.

It was also a cake-walk for the men as they streamrolled minnows Guadeloupe 25-9, 25-18, 25-20 in a game which coach Ludger Niles gave all 12 of his players some court time. Read more

“Sharon speaking” the group of female flag-waving fans shouted, to spontaneous laughter by the partisan Barbados crowd in response to another thunderous kill by local volleyball ace Sharon Bovell, and copying the theme of one of Barbados’ most popular cell phone commercials. Read more

No Stopping The Bajans -

Friday 02, July-2004

Barbadian Anicia Wood (right) and Anastasia Sands of the Bahamas at the Caribbean Volleyball Championships 2004Barbadian Anicia Wood (right) and Anastasia Sands of the Bahamas go high to block each other in their clash Wednesday.

Barbados’ national volleyball teams keep making this a habit.
Both the men and women’s squads are on the verge of greatness, having remained unbeaten so far in the 10th Caribbean Volleyball Championships being played at the Garfield Sobers Sports Complex.

The women have won their first four games, and even though they were given a fight by the Bahamas on Wednesday night, came through 3-1 winners.

The men have been even more dominant, not losing a set in their three wins as they seek an unprecedented ninth regional title, which should be earned on Sunday.

Bajans Roll Over St Lucia -

Saturday 03, July-2004
Acid, brutal, cruel, dismissive!
One would have to go down the entire alphabet of adjectives to adequately describe how eight-times Caribbean Kings Barbados stormed into the semifinals of the 10th Caribbean volleyball championships with a mauling of OECS champions, St Lucia at Garfield Sobers Sports Complex on Thursday night.

The Bajans took just one hour to destroy St Lucia, 25-15, 25-13, 25-11, to book a predictable direct trip to today’s semifinals with the game looking like a mismatch between a primary school cricket champion and Australia.

In spite of playing with their customary passion and spirit, the St Lucians were only competitive for the first five minutes of each set. < Read more >

BARBADOS’ Fabian Cox with a game high 14 kills guided the eight-time Caribbean champions Barbados to the final of the 2004 Caribbean Volleyball Championship (CVC).

The Bajan men overpowered Martinique 25-13, 25-22, 25-19 in their semifinal match on Saturday when the tournament continued at the gymnasium of the Garfield Sports Sports Complex, Wildey.

It took 58 minutes for Barbados to dispose of Marnique and continue their unbeaten run into the final where they will come up against Jamaica. < Read more>
