Grange congratulates Gaynstead on historic national double

Kingston 8 December 2018 – The Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment & Sport, the Honourable Olivia Grange, has congratulated Gaynstead on becoming the national schools netball champions at both the senior and junior levels for the first time in their history.

Gaynstead, the urban champions, defeated the rural schools champions, Denbigh, in both divisions of the ISSA All-Island Netball finals at the Leila Robinson Courts on Friday (June 7).

The junior team scored a close 24-21 win to secure their second All-Island title; and the senior team won 35-26 for their first All-Island title.

Minister Grange said she was “proud of both Gaynstead and Denbigh for a dominant season in schools netball, but I must commend Gaynstead on their history making season that has culminated with them being national champions in both the senior and junior divisions. It shows what our young athletes in all sports can do with continuous support from all quarters. Well done, ladies.”


Minister's charge

I remain hopeful because of the giftedness of the Jamaican people; their warmth and creativity; their dynamism and indomitable spirit that have resulted in excellence in all sectors.

It is by tapping into the gifts and awakening the spirit of the Jamaican people that we will, by God’s grace, re-group, re-engineer and re-open to a brighter future with Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport.

Olivia Grange
