| 08/10/2013

(CNS): More than 120 boys and girls took to the basketball courts to showcase their talents in the annual PwC Under 16 Boys and Girls Leagues. Sponsored by the auditors for more than seven consecutive years it has yielded some great results, organizers said. This year's leagues saw a change of guard as the previous '3-peat; Boys Champions – Bodden Town, had to hand over the reins to Wesleyan who were led by League and Finals MVP Albis Amaya (who led the league in scoring and rebounds), and Star Guards Arin Taylor and Juawon Ebanks who were the most dominant at the first and second positions.

For the Girls, The Lynx captured their first championship led by League MVP Hannah Parchment and Rising Star Khalian O'Connor,the Lynx were able to dominate the majority of the season and quickly became the favourites.  Due to their dedication at practice and teamwork, they were an unstoppable force, league organizers said in a release.

Angilynn Chan-Baraud, PwC’s Business Development Manager said the firm was proud to support the youngsters in developing skills such as; sportsmanship, team work, dedication and physical well-being.  “We commend those involved who contribute their time from score keeping to coaching our youth throughout the season.  The league would not be a success without such individuals,” she said. 

PwC's financial support allows proper statistical record keeping it also allows the game to be played indoors which is extremely important to player development. The league provides a fun, safe environment for young teens to engage in the sport of basketball, learn about teamwork and commitment as well as gain local and international recognition for their talents.

Because of this league and the role it plays in youth basketball development, more than 10 athletes have been able to land spots on high school rosters in the US and even more have gone on to college.
