 WESTERN BUREAU:

Savanna-la-mar Primary School took a major step in defending their national JaVA Primary & Prep Schools' Volleyball Championship title by winning the JaVA Deran Lee Primary & Prep Schools volleyball league for Westmoreland schools on Friday.

Savanna-la-Mar got by Loving Care, Chantilly Primary & Infant and New Road All Age in Group B quarter-final action, before dispatching last year's parish champions, Holly Hill Primary & Infant 15-10, 15-11 in the semis.

Savanna-la-Mar Primary set up a final clash with rally winners, Unity Primary, who brushed aside Holly Hill, Little London Primary and Kings Primary in Group A, then claimed a hard fought 15-9, 12-15, 11-4 semi-final victory over Loving Care.

Savanna la-Mar went on to win the title 15-13, 15-9, Holly Hill secured the bronze medal, 15-13, 15-5, over host team Loving Care.

Award winners

Rockila Williams and Ashley Plummer of Savanna-la-Mar Pri-mary were voted winners of the President's Madd Skill Award and Most Valuable Player, respectively.

"Due to 14 schools participating in Westmoreland, JaVA has decided to admit four at the national finals in Kingston on December 11," disclosed Major Warrenton Dixon, JaVA schools-development manager.

"Sponsor Deran Lee has committed to providing the top four teams with jerseys this year, so Holly Hill and Loving Care will get theirs in time for national finals," noted Haile Mika'el, JaVA's western-region coordinator.

"The jerseys are a five-year investment, as Mr Lee plans to have all teams in the championship outfitted in due course."

Medals and trophies were also presented for the rally won by Unity 'A', with Holly Hill 'B' second and New Road Primary School third.

Unity's Jermaine Gardener was named MVP and Sojay McHayle, of Holly Hill, the President's Madd Skills Awardee.
