Coleridge and Parry boys and the Barbados Community College (BCC) girls predictably captured the Super Centre Inter-Schools volleyball knockout title on Monday to become double champions for the 2012-13 season.

In a repeat of last Friday’s league finals, which were also played at the Gymnasium of the Garfield Sobers Sports Complex, BCC girls took four sets to defeat Queen’s College 25-18, 25-18, 23-25, 25-16.

However, Coleridge and Parry boys raised their game while BCC lads stuttered and failed to win a set, tumbling 19-25, 13-25, 10-25, to the onslaught of the team from Ashton Hall.

BCC boys needed to seize the early advantage for their Barbados player Leshon Alexander to drag his teammates over the line.

With Alexander blasting from the first set, BCC lead 8-2. However, the mathematical and skills advantage of Kimar Hinds, Carlos Cyrus, Nicolai Bovelle, Stephen Packer, Shakera Hall and Atiba Best proved totally superior.

Against such odds, BCC wilted as even Alexander committed numerous attacking errors while Coleridge and Parry took advantage of superb setting from Hinds to pound their hapless opponents.

BCC girls were equally aggressive in once again bombing an error-prone Queen’s College, with standout attacker Elizabeth Trotman exposing their weak net and court defence.

On the other hand, pint-sized Xenia Garnes was like a volleyball vacuum cleaner, picking up every ball directed at BCC’s court.

National junior basketballer Ashlee Daniel ignited in the third set for Queen’s College to give the Husbands team some hope of at least carrying the game to a deciding set.

However, Kimberly Pilgrim roughed up Daniel with some crushing blocks in the fourth set to extinguish any hopes of a Queen’s College fightback.

Pilgrim then added insult to injury by finishing the set and match with a cracker past Daniel to start the double-crown coronation and celebrations for BCC.
