Team St. Maarten proved to be somewhat of a bother to the
Anguillans however as the first set was the closest of the 18
played so far. They gave another good effort in the second set
but the more experienced opponents polished them off. By that
time there was no gas left in the tank hence there was not much

of their several objectives and that is to play for the gold
medal but admitted that St. Marten proved quite nagging at

that adjustment if we are to be successful going forward.
Nevertheless I don’t think that we have played our best yet we
were just a little too complacent today,” he reported.
Stand in captain of the Anguilla team Ludiane Leveret-
Richardson concurred with the coach. “We need to make some
adjustments in the way we start and position ourselves when the

Losing Coach, Cleophas Arrindell, watch his team improve over
the course of the competition. “They are improving slowly maybe
too slowly but we can see incremental improvement. We are not
quite there yet but I am hoping that we can put it together by
tonight and still salvage a third place,” he said.
Captain Lastasha Mills took her third straight loss in good
stride. “All I will tell my girls is that we have nothing to
lose so let’s go out there and give it our best shot,” she
