West Terrace wins it for coach Linton

When West Terrace Primary School do anything in sports they do it in a big way.

In 2012 the St James school won the NAPSAC for the first time establishing a record where both their boys and girls roared to victory in the same year.

Then last Friday, West Terrace captured the Guardian Group Herman Griffith Cricket Championship for the first time at the famous Empire cricket ground where the records fell by the way at the “Home of Champions.”

West Terrace made a record 206 for two wickets against former champions Charles F. Broome to take the title with a comprehensive 74 runs victory.

Raheem Archer also rewrote the record book with a masterful 114 not out off just 76 balls to score the highest total in a final and to become the first centurion in the schools’ finals.

That is a remarkable accomplishment when one considers that 33 previous editions of the Herman Griffith finals have produced a plethora of Barbados and West Indies cricketers. It was truly fitting that one of the greatest, if not the greatest, His Excellency Sir Garfield Sobers, along with Sir Wesley Hall, were present to enjoy the Archer and West Terrace show.
