The LIME Super Cup Trophy Tour made a stop at St Elizabeth Technical High School (STETHS) in Santa Cruz on Monday.

The defending daCosta Cup champions are flying high in this year's competition, and the hope is that they will add to the ten liens they have achieved since 1974.

Students and members of staff got the privilege of seeing the glistening crystal trophy up close and personal as it was unveiled and exhibited at the school during the LIME Super Cup trophy tour. This was the second stop in an eight-school tour and its first time at a school from the daCosta Cup competition.

Principal Keith Wellington is enthused with the new competition and said, "I like the idea, and the students are excited that they will be playing in a knockout format nationally.

Head coach Omar 'Rambo' Wedderburn is also high on the competition and looks forward to the benefits.

"It is particularly interesting, in that you start getting revenue from the start," said Wedderburn. "It will motivate the staff and the players to want to move on in the competition. When you consider that there is a million dollars to win, the principal wants us to do well, and the bursar will want us to do well. It is a worthwhile one for the schools," he added.

Wedderburn is also looking forward to settling an annual argument.

"The LIME Super Cup will ease everyone's burden, and everyone's thinking as to who is best, country or town. I am looking forward to it," he concluded.

STETHS are currently undefeated this season and are odds-on favourites to finish first in their group to secure a place in the inter zone play-offs.
