The Schoolgirls Rugby All-Star
team was on the wrong side of a
heavy 55-5 defeat against a T&T
Rugby Football Union Club Select
team at the St James Police Bar-
racks, on Saturday.
Still, the young ladies of the
Girls All Star team could certainly
hold their heads high at the end
of their maiden competitive outing
of full-contact rugby.
Cheered all the way by a vocal
gathering of friends, family and
schoolmates, the All Star team
valiantly attempted to resist the
force of the Club Select. The Club
Select, which included no less than
four T&T senior women's rugby
players in Nicolette Pantor, Kath-
leen Stephen, Alesha Bruce and
Blosson Stewart, jumped out to a
35-0 lead by halftime with five
tries and five conversions.
The All Stars seemed to be rat-
tled by the viciousness of the Club
Select's hits and searing pace which
the more experienced team used
to expose the All Star team's
By the second half, the All Stars
found some rhythm and an early
second half try by Aaliah DeGale
boosted the team's confidence.
With braver and more organised
defending, the All Stars restricted
their opponents to 20 points in
the second half and came close to
the opposite goal line on more than
a few occasions before the final
As recent invitees to train with
the national team, Chantelle
Charles and Pateia Paul led the
school girls with distinction, while
Danielle DeGannes and Aquila
O'Brien also impressed.
Signs of the All Star team's
potential were certainly evident
and among those applauding their
effort were president of the
School's Rugby Football Union
Gregory Rousseau, as well as coach
of the senior women's national
team Carlton Felix.
MONACO---Track and field s
governing body says it will pro-
vide $22 million over a four-year
period to its national federations.
IAAF president Sebastian Coe
says each national federation will
receive $25,000 a year as part of
the "IAAF Olympic Athletics Div-
Coe says the funds represent
about one-half of the revenues
which the IAAF receives from the
IOC during each four-year
The funding plan was one of
the main promises of Coe's IAAF
election campaign. He was elected
in August, defeating Sergei Bubka
to succeed Lamine Diack.
The money is aimed at helping
national bodies develop the sport
in their countries.
Coe says "the IAAF must engage
and work together with its mem-
bers, listen to their needs and
implement tailored solutions at a
local and regional level."
LAS VEGAS---Lamar Odom is alert
and his condition is improving after
the former basketball star was found
unconscious at a Nevada brothel a
week ago, his family said yesterday.
Alvina Alston, publicist for Odom's
aunt JaNean Mercer, said the former
reality-TV personality is undergoing
testing, but there is no word yet on
when he might be released from the
hospital. Odom is overcoming "insur-
mountable obstacles" and defying the
odds, Mercer said in a statement.
"Each day Lamar is getting stronger
and reaching significant milestones
in his recovery," the statement said.
Odom was found in extremely crit-
ical condition at the Love Ranch
brothel in the rural community of
Crystal, Nevada, on October 13 and
was hospitalised in Las Vegas. He
regained consciousness and commu-
nicated for the first time Friday.
The brothel said workers saw him
drink alcohol and take supplements
sold as "herbal Viagra." The Food and
Drug Administration issued a warning
in 2013 against one brand he took,
Reload, after it was found to contain
sildenafil, the active ingredient in pre-
He also told at least one of the
women that he had done cocaine, but
the brothel says it did not see him
take any drugs or find any there.
Odom's family, including estranged
wife Khloe Kardashian, rushed to Las
Vegas to be by his side at the hospital.
Friends, teammates and loved ones
also have visited and posted requests
for prayers on social media.
Love Ranch owner Dennis Hof has
said that Odom arrived October 10
for a four-day stay and spent $75,000
on two women who accompanied him
in a VIP suite.
National golfer Monifa Sealy,
who is presently competing on
the National Women s Golf Asso-
ciation Tour, had her best finish
when she ended tied second in a
tournament played at the
Timacuan Golf Club in Lake
Mary, Florida, last week.
Sealy, who recently turned pro-
fessional after a stellar collegiate
career shot rounds of 69, 73, and
74. This follows previous tourna-
ments where Sealy finished third
However, to continue her dream
of making it to the top of the
Ladies Professional Golf Tour,
Sealy will need financial support.
T&T Golf Association director of
golf Chris Harries says support
should be given as Sealy has
shown ability throughout her
career, leading T&T to victory
three years in a row at the
Caribbean Amateur Golf Cham-
pionships, as well as winning col-
fall to Club Select
