Kingsway junior girls have perfect season, win volleyball title

THE Kingsway Academy Saints junior girls completed a perfect season by winning the Bahamas Association of Independent Secondary Schools volleyball title last week over Lyford Cay International.

The Saints, coached by Juliet Douglas-Sands, marched to a 3-2 victory at the Aquinas College courts. The team members were Rakia Duncombe, Daenelle Johnson, Anaija Clarke, Joya Sands, Johanna Johnson, Lilianna Rolle, Andica Curtis, Nikayla Butler, Nicole Butler, Brianca Butterfield, Shayla Outten, Nyla Munroe and Kaylee Johnson.

Douglas-Sands said she was extremely proud of their victorious season.

“The girls have been committed all year,” she said. “Last year’s defeat motivated them to come out and battle with renewed determination. They displayed passion, teamwork, and dedication at every turn. I had no doubt that this season would have ended any other way.”

From the first practice to the final whistle of the championship match, Douglas-Sands said their journey was one of resilience and collective spirit.

“Each player brought their best to the court, contributing to our shared goal of transforming last year’s disappointment into this year’s triumph,” she said. “The belief in their potential and their unwavering commitment have been evident throughout.”

The victory, she added, is a testament to their relentless spirit and the power of unity.

“I couldn’t be prouder of these young athletes,” she summed up. “Their hard work has truly paid off, and their story is an inspiration to all, proving that with passion, teamwork and dedication, any challenge can be overcome.”
