Cave Hill the 2011 champions
The student athletes from the Cave Hill Campus of the University of the West Indies finished off the 2011 UWI Games in fine style yesterday, by winning the overall title for the first time since 2003.
And what a finish it was. In the final 48 hours of the Games, Cave Hill did the men and women’s double in volleyball, hockey and basketball, and also won the netball and cricket competitions to overstate their dominance as the best student athletes in the region.
Up to press time yesterday, with only the football segment left to be completed at Paradise Park, a couple hundred yards from the Cave Hill campus, the hometown Blackbirds had already amassed 86 points, with Mona Campus of Jamaica trailing in second spot on 64 points, and the St Augustine Campus of Trinidad last on 58.
