NEWS & NOTES: CNN to air full Bolt interview + Warren Blake returned as JAAA head + Glenmuir reigns again

CHAMPIONSHIP SEASON: The “silent assassins” of Glenmuir High earned a hard-fought 1-0 victory over St. Elizabeth Technical (STETHS) on Saturday to secure their third-ever hold on the prestigious DaCosta Cup, the all-important symbol of rural-area schoolboy-football supremacy. Winning coach Jackie Walters chalked up the win to a mix of old-fashioned hard work and crucial support from the school body and faculty. “This new administration at the school is stressing academics and have thrown their full support behind the team, even with the limited budget available,” he said. This Wednesday, the Clarendon-based team will journey to the Constant Spring field in Kingston to take on Manning Cup champs, St. George’s College, in the first leg of the Olivier Shield, the coveted all-island trophy.

THE MAN FOR THE JOB: Medical practitioner Dr. Warren Blake scored a landslide win over his two challengers recently to secure a second term as president of the JAAA. Amassing 177 votes, Blake turned back the bids of lawyer Lincoln Eatmon, who pulled 121 votes, and former Olympian Grace Jackson, who raked in 28. “I wasn’t surprised with my easy win,” conceded Blake. “We have done the work, and Jamaica has had one of its most successful years on the junior and senior levels.”
