Haiti grabs Girls Gold Medal at CAZOVA U20



BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, December 13, 2015 -  Haiti silenced the home crowd to capture their first CAZOVA junior title as the 10th edition climaxed in the Wildey Gym, Bridgetown


 It was a case of a repeated nightmare as Barbados were pounded by Haiti 25-15, 25-8, 25-19.

Barbados had suffered a similar loss back in 1997 when the inaugural tournament was held at the same venue by bowing to Trinidad & Tobago.


Last night Barbados had no counter for the power of Solaida Pierre who scored 15 points and Jackie Graziella Cherry who added 12 with only the high jumping Shonte Seale with nine points and Aliyyah Durant with seven tried to out up some fight for the Bajans.


Barbados had also lost 3-1 to Haiti in the preliminaries for the French team to play unbeaten throughout the tournament.
