President of the International Federation of Netball Associations Molly Rhone has received the Order of Jamaica, the countryÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s fourth highest national award, for her contribution to sports administration, in the island and overseas.
Rhone has been president of IFNA for the last eight years. She received the insignia at this yearÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s National Honors and Awards ceremony in celebration of National Heroes Day on Oct. 17 at KingÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s House.
The former legendary captain of the all-conquering West Indies team, Clive Lloyd says that he is convinced that West Indies cricket is on the upward curve.
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œI have seen the signs, I am seeing the ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‹Å“green shootsÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ in players like Kirk Edwards and Andre Russell who have come on to the scene and done well and shown that they are quality players who can compete against any team around the world,ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â Lloyd observed.
The Hurricane defense couldnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t have made their presence felt at a more opportune and necessary time. Lining up against No. 20 Georgia Tech, who boasted the second best rushing offense in the country, the Hurricane defense knew they were going to be tested. The results are in and the Hurricane defense passed with flying colors. The Miami Hurricanes made a huge statement with their convincing 24-7 upset win in front of nearly 44,000 at Sun Life Stadium.
With a swarming defensive surge and, for the first time this year, a stout defensive line that rarely gave up any ground at the line of scrimmage, the Hurricane defense limited the Yellow JacketÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s vaunted spread option offense to just 134 rushing yards and a little over 200 total yards, their lowest totals of the year.
Realizing the economic potential of Central Broward Regional Park and Stadium and its exclusive cricket facility, Broward County Commissioner Dale Holness has formed a Cricket Advisory Committee to promote and market the second most popular sport in the world.
Members of the Broward County District 9 Commissioner Holness Cricket Committee are some of the best in the cricket sports business. The committee will be chaired by Jeff Miller, vice president of operations ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ Cricket Council USA. Other committee members include former West Indies players Lance Gibbs and Lawrence Rowe; General Manager of United States of America Cricket Association, Manaf Mohamed; radio personality John T. Hodgson; business executive, Daniel Williams; and former Jamaica youth player, Gregory Brown.
