New events added A number of new events will be unveiled during the week of the tournament, including a charity stand-up comedy night on Thursday, September 24, and a celebratory beach party on Saturday, September 26. For the first time, a locally developed tournament app (application) will be available for anglers and participants. In addition, there will be a new website, which allows interested parties to follow the action real-time as well as through daily press updates during the event, which will include video and photography. Throughout the years, ‘MoBay Marlin’ has not only offered fantastic fishing, but some of the best hospitality and dock life around. The tournament received international recognition last year for adopting conservation rules. In addition, its growing regional significance has even led to the creation of a sustainable means for an increase in off-season tourism. Last Tuesday, organisers held a ‘MoBay Marlin Media Mixer’ at Regency Bar, Terra Nova Hotel, in Kingston, where the media, organisers, registered competitors, and teammates, as well as the sponsors got the chance to mingle and talk about this year’s exciting staging. WESTERN BUREAU: Over 40 boats are now fine-tuning their preparation for the 2015 Montego Bay International Marlin Tournament, which will unfold at the Montego Bay Yacht Club in St James between September 21 and 26. The popular international tournament, which is affectionately called ‘MoBay Marlin’ by stakeholders, is now in its 54th year and is one of the most anticipated events among local water sports enthusiasts. Last year, which had a record-breaking 27 fishing boats competing, saw an average of 10 blue marlins caught each day, producing a record overall catch at the end of the tournament. The catch rate was much higher than similar high-profile tournaments staged elsewhere. “The yield is expected to be more bountiful this year,” a source close to the organisers of the six-day competition told The Gleaner. “We are expecting the tournament to be better in every way.”
Surprise ISSA-Flow Manning Cup schoolboy semi-finalists Denham Town and Jonathan Grant High emphatically stamped their class, ousting, between them, four former champions from groups I and K, respectively, en route to the grand semi-final stage. The fallen former champions are Calabar, Charlie Smith and Excelsior in Group K, along with Camperdown from Group I. Coach Omar Edwards was proud of his history-making Denham Town team, despite being lashed 4-1 by Camperdown at the Constant Spring field yesterday. Camperdown’s scorers were Kevin Clarke, who led with a 26th- and 64th-minute brace, while Aruna Anderson struck in the 49th and Tajae Brown rounded out the scoring in stoppage time (90+2). Daquan Black scored the consolation for Denham Town, who might have some injury concerns ahead of the semi-finals, with defender Arthur Walters stretchered off with a head injury. The result was one of academic interest as the west Kingston-based school had already qualified on six points, courtesy of a 1-0 win over Innswood High and Hydel’s lost three points for fielding an ineligible player against them. Hydel had won 3-0 but ISSA reversed the decision, handing the points to Denham Town. “We have advanced to the semi-finals, the first time in the history of the school. This is my first year with them. The players don’t fully buy into the concept as yet, but we have time on our hands,” he told The Gleaner. “We have to get the players sharp and focused for the semi-finals because that is really the big one. We did not even start this game with our best 11, but gave others starts to see what they would look like in the semi-finals,” Edwards added. In the later game at Constant Spring, Charlie Smith trounced Excelsior 4-0. Ronaldo McDonald scored in the 29th and 87th minutes, while Kemar Jones netted in the 35th, with Zamario Sinclair scoring in minute 59. Meanwhile, at Prison Oval, Jonathan Grant held on for a 2-2 draw with Calabar High to book their passage to the last four in yesterday’s 1 p.m. curtain-raiser. Hydel clipped Innswood 4-3 in the later game at the same venue. Click link for more Schoolboy Football photos.http://jamaica-gleaner.com/myreport/schoolboy#mid=&offset=&page=&s=
ST JOHN’S, Antigua (CMC):West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) President Dave Cameron has hailed Stafanie Taylor’s capture of the ICC Women’s Twenty20 International Cricketer of the Year award and says the honour will further boost women’s cricket in the region.The 24-year-old Taylor was on Wednesday honoured with the award for the year 2015 by cricket’s world governing body after dominating the international circuit with 340 runs from nine matches, including three half-centuries, during the period under review.”Stafanie has demonstrated that she is not just an excellent batter and bowler, but also a very good leader,” Cameron said.FANTASTIC JOB”She did a fantastic job when she took over the captaincy against Pakistan earlier this year and was immediately rewarded with a series victory.”This award will help raise the profile of women’s cricket in the West Indies, as it is further proof that young women in the Caribbean can rise to the top of the world in their chosen endeavour,” he added.The right-handed Taylor has been a prolific scorer for West Indies ever since making her debut as a 16-year-old in 2008. Such form landed her the ICC One-Day International (ODI) Player of the Year awards in 2011 and 2012.Last September, she was elevated to the post of captain and inspired her side to a 3-0 victory over touring Pakistan women in the T20 series and a 3-1 win in the ODI series.She plundered 261 runs at an average of 130 in the ODIs to earn the Player of the Series award.Cameron said Taylor had been an “outstanding representative and ambassador” throughout her career.”On behalf of the WICB and the various stakeholders in West Indies cricket, I want to extend congratulations to Stafanie on winning this major award on the ICC cricketing calendar,” Cameron noted.”She has been an outstanding representative and ambassador for West Indies from the first time she set foot on the international stage back in 2008, and she keeps getting better.”
An elderly voter narrowly escaped arrest after she was involved in an altercation with election day workers at a polling division in the St Andrew, south-eastern constituency. According to election day workers at a polling station housed at the Jaycee’s headquarters on Altamont Crescent in New Kingston, the woman cast her vote and proceeded to tear-off the counter seal on the ballot; a job, which should have been done exclusively by election day workers. As a consequence, the woman was informed her vote had been voided. She asked if she could take the ballot from the polling station home, however, this was refused. This was when the altercation started and the police were called. As a result, the woman, who wishes to be anonymous was unable to vote. The Jaycee’s polling station on Altamont Crescent was among the least visited by voters within that constituency.
MONACO (AP):A ninth Monte Carlo Masters title is getting closer for Rafael Nadal with most of his rivals out of the way – including Roger Federer, who again misses out on one of the few trophies not already in his glittering collection.But Federer – a four-time runner-up on the French Riviera – was not too disappointed, considering that his priority was to come back safely after more than two months out following knee surgery.Nadal beat Stan Wawrinka 6-1, 6-4 yesterday to set up a third semi-final here against Andy Murray. Federer lost 3-6, 6-2, 7-5 to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, despite being two points from victory when 5-4 up in the decider, with Tsonga 15-30 down on his serve.This was Federer’s first tournament play since arthroscopic surgery on his left knee for torn cartilage on February 3, and defeat was softened by relief at avoiding any relapse.”It was good to play back-to-back, yesterday and today, good to play 2 hours 10 (minutes) today,” Federer said. “It was nice to play an intense match. I’m happy how the body reacted.”With top-ranked Novak Djokovic and Wawrinka – the French Open champion – also out, Federer himself picked Nadal when asked about the favourite.Nadal leads Murray 16-6 in career meetings and 6-1 on clay. For the other two semi-finalists, Nadal is 11-2 up on Gael Monfils – 4-0 on clay – and 8-4 on Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, having beaten him here in the semi-finals three years ago. Nadal went on to lose the 2013 final to Djokovic, who was stunned in the second round this year by Czech Jiri Vesely, an unheralded Czech player ranked 55th.In a one-sided contest between former champions, Nadal broke Wawrinka four times and made the semi-finals for the 11th time.Murray took out Milos Raonic 6-2, 6-0 for the second time this year.The Briton thinks patience will be the key factor against the nine-time French Open champion.
WESTERN BUREAU:The three most dominant schools in Zone A of the 2016 Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA)/FLOW daCosta Cup football competition all logged fine victories yesterday as the zone begins to take shape.Cornwall College and St James High scored 3-0 and 1-0 victories over Irwin High and Anchovy High, respectively, while Green Pond turned back Maldon, also by a 1-0 margin.Clarendon College also ticked off another fine performance, stopping Edwin Allen 4-0 to remain in the lead in Group H, as did Glenmuir High, who defeated Porus High 4-0 at the Juici-Patties playing field to take charge in Zone M.Over in Zone K, Dinthill continued their fine run with an emphatic 6-0 trouncing of Guys Hill to solidify their lead.However, Cornwall College, minus striker Jourdane Fletcher, who was red-carded for an off-the-ball incident in their first game, were looking to stake a claim for pole position in a zone that is sure to have its own twists and turns.FANCY PLAYThey started well against Irwin, with Giovanni Reid, Garnett Hudson, Clifton Russell, and Michael Heaven making all the plays, demonstrating a degree of movement off the ball that was pleasing to the eye.They grabbed the lead in the 34th minute from a free-kick 26 yards out. Heaven unleashed a thunderous ‘grass cutter’ that left Irwin goalkeeper Ryheem Vassell grasping at air as the ball zipped into the back of the net.Cornwall had more to give in the second, and they added two more goals to complete the win and send them clear atop Zone A on a maximum six points from two matches, plus a healthy goal difference over St James, who also picked up three points yesterday at Jarrett Park.Tyreke Clarke netted in the 76th minute against a plucky Anchovy unit as St James kept pace with three more points to also maintain a 100 per cent win record. Green Pond recovered from their drawn first match to claim three vital points to be third in the zone on four points.Yesterday’s ResultsCornwall College 3 Irwin 0St James 1 Anchovy 0Green Pond 1 Maldon 0Garvey Maceo 4 Winston Jones 0Denbigh 0 Foga Road 2Glenmuir 4 Porus 0Bog Walk 0 Ewarton 1Clarendon College 4 Edwin Allen 0Thompson Town 1 Knox 0Steer Town 2 Ocho Rios 1Guys Hill 0 Dinthill 6Today’s matchesRusea’s vs Green PondBrimmervale vs TackyBlack River vs LacoviaMaggotty vs MunroNewell vs STETHSManchester vs DeCarteretMile Gully vs BelairBB Coke vs Cross KeysA.

KINGSTON: The Petroleum Corporation of Jamaica (PCJ) has provided $5 million for the staging of the 2017 Jamaica International Invitational Meet (JIIM), which is set for May 20 at the National Stadium in Kingston. The contribution is the final tranche of a $15 million sponsorship package – with equal allocations of $5 million over a three-year period – that the PCJ announced in 2015. The support was given against the background of the schedule of major track and field events over the period, including the IAAF World Championships in Beijing, China, in 2015; the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, and the upcoming 2017 World Championships scheduled for August in London, England. The JIIM, which is among the biggest sporting events held on local soil, is a critical element in Jamaica’s track and field programme. It serves as a preparatory event for major championships, giving local athletes the chance to experience elite-level competition without leaving the country. In addition, the meet attracts international media coverage, which provides global exposure for Jamaican athletes and the country’s athletics programme. It also enjoys a good level of participation from renowned international sports persons, and this year’s line-up includes American Olympic gold medallists LaShawn Merritt and Allyson Felix as well as Jamaican superstars Elaine Thompson, Asafa Powell, and Javon Francis. Camille Taylor, the PCJ’s manager, corporate affairs and communications, said: “The PCJ’s $15 million sponsorship package for the Jamaica Invitational was given to support Jamaica’s preparation for the world’s biggest track and field events between 2015 and 2017, and it has been a worthwhile investment. We were thrilled with Jamaica’s stellar performances in the Beijing World Championships and the Rio Olympics, and we are looking forward to another excellent show this summer in London.” Dr Warren Blake, chairman of the JIIM organising committee, said, “It takes strong financial support to stage a meet like the Jamaica International Invitational each year, and we are extremely grateful to the PCJ for this multiyear sponsorship deal.”
Phivolcs records 2 ‘discrete weak ash explosions’ at Taal Volcano Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield, winner of the Heisman Trophy, kisses the trophy Saturday, Dec. 9, 2017, in New York. (AP Photo/Craig Ruttle)NEW YORK — Baker Mayfield took a unique road to the Heisman Trophy, a long and winding climb from walk-on to one of the most accomplished players to ever play college football.The brash, flag-planting Oklahoma quarterback became the sixth Sooner to the win Heisman on Saturday night in one of the most lopsided votes in the 83-year history of the award.ADVERTISEMENT View comments There is at least one more game to play for Mayfield, and maybe two. He and the Sooners will go into the playoff as a slight underdog against Georgia, which seems only appropriate for a player who has built his career on exceeding expectations.Asked what has been his best moment, Mayfield predictably answered: “It hasn’t happened yet.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next James has 58th career triple-double; Cavs rally past 76ers Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ Stanford running back Bryce Love was the runner-up, making it five second-place finishes for the Cardinal since 2009. Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson, last year’s Heisman winner, was third, the best finish by a returning winner since Tim Tebow of Florida in 2008.Mayfield received 732 first-place votes and 2,398 points. Love had 75 first-place votes and 1,300 points and Jackson received 47 and 793. Mayfield received 86 percent of the total points available, the third-highest percentage in Heisman history behind Ohio State’s Troy Smith (91.63 percent) in 2006 and Oregon’s Marcus Mariota (90.92) in 2014.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSBrian Heruela arrival bolsters Phoenix backcourt, defenseMayfield is the third player to win the Heisman heading to the College Football Playoff. The second-ranked Sooners meet No. 3 Georgia in the Rose Bowl on Jan. 1. He is the first senior to win the award since Smith and the first Heisman winner to begin his career as a walk-on since athletic scholarships started in the 1950s.“It’s been a tough journey,” Mayfield said during his acceptance speech. He choked back tears, thanking his parents and first-year Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley.

He received one offer from a Power Five program — Washington State.“There’s something to be said for having just good ol’ confidence in yourself,” Mayfield said. “Just true belief. My journey, like I said earlier is not over, but it’s about facing adversity. If there’s mistakes, being up front about it and then moving forward and being better in the future.”He walked-on at Texas Tech and started eight games as a freshman in 2013. With a glut of quarterbacks in Lubbock, Mayfield left and had only one school in mind. He walked-on again at Oklahoma.Mayfield thanked former Sooners coach Bob Stoops, who also was at the Best Buy Theater in midtown Manhattan, for welcoming a “chubby, unathletic kid into the program with open arms.” That was also Riley’s first season as Oklahoma’s offensive coordinator. The two have been a perfect match.“For any coach to have a chance for your guy to be standing here, to win the Heisman Trophy, and just to do it kind of at the end of such a long journey we’ve had together, it’s very special,” Riley said.Mayfield’s departure from Texas Tech was contentious. At first, he lost a year of eligibility, despite not being on scholarship. He eventually got that year back when the Big 12 tweaked its rules, but he never did let it go. For his last game against Texas Tech this season, he wore the “Traitor” T-shirt that some Red Raiders fans wore when he first returned to Lubbock with Oklahoma.Later in the year, it was Kansas — of all teams — that tried to get the volatile Mayfield off his game. Jayhawks captains refused to shake his hand during the pregame coin flip. They trash-talked Mayfield and even took a late hit at him. He responded by screaming profanities and making a lewd gesture that television cameras caught. That led to a public apology from Mayfield, his third this year.The first came after he was arrested in Fayetteville, Arkansas, in February for public intoxication, disorderly conduct and fleeing. He pleaded guilty to three misdemeanors and paid a $300 fine. The second came after that flag planting in Columbus, Ohio, after the Sooners beat the Buckeyes.Mayfield is an old-school Heisman winner. For decades, seniors dominated the Heisman, but over the last 10 years four juniors, four sophomores and two redshirt freshmen have won. By comparison, Mayfield has been around forever. He has played 47 college games. Only USC’s Carson Palmer with 50 had played more when he won his Heisman in 2002. “Tried to play it cool,” Mayfield said later. “That’s not my thing though. I’m a guy that wears his emotions on his sleeve.”Mayfield finished fourth in the Heisman voting two years ago and third last year. “It’s motivating for me to be the best in the country,” he said.Mayfield entered this season as one of the Heisman favorites and jumped toward the front of the pack when he led the Sooners to an early victory at Ohio State that he celebrated by planting the OU flag in the Horseshoe turf.He later apologized for that, but that has been Mayfield’s career. Spectacular play fueled by grudges, slights and trying to prove doubters wrong. Moxie is the word that gets attached to Mayfield often, but at times poor judgment has gotten him in trouble on and off the field.Those were really the only marks on Mayfield’s Heisman resume because his play has been consistently stellar. He has thrown for 4,340 yards and 41 touchdowns this season for the Big 12 champion Sooners (12-1). For his career, Mayfield is eighth in FBS history in yards passing (14,320) and sixth in touchdown passes (129).ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
