The combined scoring efforts of Cedric Billionniere, an Outside Hitter and Rotilio Richardson, an Opposite Hitter, both contributed 12 points each,  for St Martin.

“I am pleased with the third place but I think we could have done better”, Stephen related.  

Reflecting on the overall tournament, Stephen stated, “It is always a pleasure to play in such tournaments as it gives us the opportunity to showcase our young talents… What we have to do is go back to St Martin and make an evaluation of the tournament and move on from there”.
