Old school v new school


A basketball tournament with a difference took place on Saturday - the older school players from the 1980s and 1990s versus the younger ones of today. The tournament was the idea of Craig Thomas, who lives in the Bronx and was coming to spend Christmas and New Year in Barbuda. Craig provided gold and silver medals, trophies for the MVP and the winning team.

Two old school teams featured Fabian, Craig, Godfrey, Cali, Persil, Gregory (see photo), Roy, Venkat, Tony, Stetson, Shey, and Shane. Two new school teams included Orlando, Zachary, Emilio, Emerick, Alan, Maverick, Archimore, Eldene, Jerez, and Andrea. The four teams played each other once and the two best met in the final. A new school team beat the veterans for the winners' trophy, while Emilio John received the MVP trophy. The players presented a plaque to Calvin Gore in appreciation of his years of dedication and support for basketball in Barbuda. Craig hopes that the tournament will become an annual event.

Now, it's been too long.
Too long, too long in slavery.
Free the people and let them move in liberty
Now, it's been too long.
Too long, too long in slavery.
So the struggle continue.
But while the struggle continue, I'm going to tell you.
