STETHS coach heading to Wolmer’s? … They’ll have to move a mountain to take him – principal

Posted on by

first_imgPrincipal of St Elizabeth Technical High School (STETHS), Keith Wellington, said he has not been informed that his track and field head coach, Reynaldo Walcott, is heading to Wolmer’s Boys’ School and is confident it will take a massive effort to poach his prized coach. As earlier reported on www.jamaica-gleaner.com, Walcott is strongly tipped to take over the reins at the Heroes Circle-based institution after its entire coaching staff headed by Christopher Harley was shown the door following another disappointing season, which culminated in a ninth place finish and 50-point tally at the ISSA-GraceKennedy Boys and Girls’ Athletics Championships. This follows the school’s back-to-back sixth-place finishes in the boys’ section at the 2015 and 2014 championships. Harley was said to have lost the confidence of several influential members of the Wolmer’s community, such as MVP Track Club coach Stephen Francis, who has been a long-time supporter of the programme. “I am confident that it will take a mountain to move him (Walcott) from St Elizabeth Technical,” Wellington told The Gleaner yesterday. “If he is going to move, those interested will have to plan to move a mountain.” Multimillion-dollar contract Sources have informed The Gleaner that Walcott has been offered a multimillion-dollar contract, which represents a 10 times improvement on his current deal with STETHS. Wellington, who praised Walcott for his work over the years in transforming STETHS into one of the strongest programmes in the country, however, maintains that there is no indication that his prized asset will be changing locations ahead of the coming season. The ISSA vice-president added that he has spoken to the coach, who he says informed him of an interest from Wolmer’s, but gave no indication that he will, in fact, be leaving. “I would have spoken to him; he volunteered to speak with me and I still have no information that he is heading to Wolmer’s, whether from the reports or the conversation I have had with him,” Wellington said. “Nothing I have read or heard says he is going to Wolmer’s. I have read where he is the person being targeted by Wolmer’s, and based on the conversation I have had with him, that is as much as I know as well. “… He (Walcott) is the target of their (Wolmer’s) interest, but I don’t know that he is going there,” Wellington noted. Of note, Walcott is currently a member of the MVP Track Club support staff, providing technical support at training sessions and is a feature at the club’s local exercises, overseas camps and international competition. Walcott, who first arrived at STETHS as a 12-year-old in seventh grade, returned to coach the team after four years of study at the University of Technology. He is in his fourth year at the helm of the programme. He is today considered to be one of the best young minds in track and field coaching and was rewarded for his work with head coach duties for Jamaica’s team to the recent Carifta Games in Grenada, where the team won 86 medals. This year, STETHS finished fifth in the boys’ section at Champs with 100 points and seventh in the female section with 71 points. Last year’s effort saw the Santa Cruz-based team also taking fifth place in the boys’ section (132 points) and ninth in the female section (51 points). In the 2014 instalment, STETHS again finished fifth in the boys’ section with 123 points and eighth in the female side on 65 points.last_img read more

Cerritos holds off Poly’s late run

Posted on by

first_imgThey might as well have been at a shooting range. For three quarters, Cerritos and Poly water polo players rifled in shots from all over the pool. But for the second time in the game and time ticking away, Poly’s David Soderberg launched a half-pool shot that found its mark to tie the game, but the Jackrabbits went scoreless the rest of the way. Pineda finished the game with four goals, Biag scored five, Chao added three for the Dons. Soderberg led Poly with four goals, and Ward tallied two. “We just couldn’t make anything happen for us offensively (or defensively) in the fourth quarter. And it came back to bite us,” Poly coach Scott Penttila said. “They (the Jackrabbits) gave it their all. I thought we actually played pretty well.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the WeekIn the opening minutes of the fourth quarter, Jan-Michael Pineda made two quick pivot moves around Poly defenders in the post to tally the tying score and go-ahead score to give Cerritos the lead, and the team added two more en route to it’s nonleague victory. “It was a lot tougher game than I thought it would be,” Cerritos coach Roy Contreras said. “We had a horrible first half defensively. My goalie was letting everything in. We were just giving them shots all around the pool. “In the second half, I told them if they want to have any chance at winning this game, they would have to step it up defensively, not just my goalie.” The Dons (17-2), ranked No. 6 in CIF Southern Section Division III, entered the third quarter trailing, 8-6, before Pineda and Dan Biag scored two consecutive goals to tie the score at 8. Poly (8-9) forged ahead briefly on a goal by Justin Ward with 2:27 left. And with less than 42 seconds remaining, Cerritos struck twice on power-play goals, one on a shot by Chattai Duanjai and another by John Chao, to give Cerritos a 10-9 advantage. center_img Both sides had found the mark 10 times. In the final stanza on Monday afternoon, the Dons’ aim was a little more accurate and the team managed to mount a stronger defensive stand and prevailed 14-10 against the host Jackrabbits. last_img read more

Donegal teenager turns up the heat on Minister during MacGill Summer School

Posted on by

first_imgA Donegal teenager turned up the heat when he challenged Minister Richard Bruton over climate action during a speech at the MacGill Summer School in Glenties.Conal O’Boyle, a 16-year-old student from Crana College in Buncrana, accused Fine Gael of “passing the buck onto the everyday citizen” when it comes to climate action.He slammed the Minister for Climate Action at the MacGill Summer School yesterday. “The Fine Gael Party line of ‘every individual has a role to play in tackling climate change’ is a lie.“Of course, we have a civic responsibility to recycle and ensure that our towns and villages are litter free, but Mary in Dingle or John in Castlebar cannot pull the plug on oil exploration off the west coast.“They cannot introduce a smoky coal ban or implement policy that will curb our emissions.“That’s the job of the legislators in Government. “Fine Gael are trying to pass the buck onto the everyday citizen of the country, when ultimately, the buck stops with them.”He added: “We need bravery, not cowardice.“I am a sixteen-year-old boy who cares about the living world.“I don’t know why I have to stand up for my future at this age.“None of those sitting beside me ever – apart from Jessie (another student activist) – had to do that. “I can campaign and lobby and scream and shout all I want, but at the end of the day, the ball is not in my court.“I cannot vote, so all I can do is make my voice heard.“It’s not fun, it’s not cool, but it’s necessary.”Conal’s speech was greeted with great applause from the hundreds in the hall of the Highlands Hotel – the vast majority who were at least four times his age. A surprised Richard Bruton sat in silence during the student’s speech and looked very down-in-the-mouth as everyone else cheered.Donegal teenager turns up the heat on Minister during MacGill Summer School was last modified: July 25th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:climateConal O’BoyledonegalMACGILL SUMMER SCHOOLspeechlast_img read more

India’s historic victory over New Zealand gives Pakistan reason to smile

Posted on by

first_imgIndia rode on half-centuries from Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma to defeat New Zealand for the first time in a T20 International in six attempts at the Feroz Shah Kotla.The 53-run victory was memorable also for Ashish Nehra who played his last professional match before retiring from the game after 18 years as an India cricketer. There were joyous scenes around the Kotla as Nehra thanked the crowd for their support.Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan picked Nehra on their shoulders during the lap of honour and the players then posed with the veteran pacer for one final photo before he walked off the international arena.However, India’s crushing win over New Zealand also gave Pakistan reason to smile. The result in Delhi on Wednesday meant New Zealand slipped from the top spot in the ICC’s T20 International rankings and were replaced by Pakistan.Kohli is leading India on Mission 111. He wants the team to be No.1 across formats. India are currently ranked No.1 in Tests, No.2 in ODIs and and No.5 in T20 Internationals.India, who currently have 116 points, can move up to second position in the T20 International rankings if they win the series 3-0. That would take India to 122 points and leave New Zealand with 114.In that scenario, Pakistan will retain their top rank with a tally of 124 points. “Even a 2-1 series win for India will be enough for Pakistan to move to the top with New Zealand slipping to 121 points,” an ICC press release said.advertisementHere are all the possible scenarios from the India vs New Zealand series:- India win 3-0 – India 122 points, New Zealand 114 points- India win 2-1- New Zealand 121 points, India 118 points- New Zealand win 2-1- New Zealand 126 points, India 115 points- New Zealand win 3-0 – New Zealand 132 points, India 111 pointslast_img read more
