Waterhouse FC’s new manager, Doreen Thompson, has disclosed that it is not an easy task to be the manager of a community-based club because of the passion of their supporters. However, Thompson hopes that having recorded their first win, they will be able to generate more positive results going forward. She was appointed manager of the Drewsland-based outfit recently and had a rough start as the former two-time national league champions suffered defeats in their first four games. Thompson, who has been associated with the club for many years, said they are looking to kick on from that victory and build on the positive energy fuelled by one of their driving forces, striker Jermain “Tuffy” Anderson. “It’s not easy to be manager of a team like Waterhouse as the supporters are very passionate,” Thompson disclosed during the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) weekly press conference at Red Stripe last Thursday morning. Waterhouse, popularly called ‘Firehouse’, earned their first points with a 2-0 win against Harbour View last Sunday at the Harbour View Stadium. ‘Firehouse’ favourite Tuffy, who was released by the club in preseason, returned and started against Harbour View. However, Anderson suffered a fractured nose during the first half and was replaced by 18-year-old striker Rodave Murray. The latter scored both goals in the 54th and 67th minutes. “Jermain (Tuffy) brings something positive to the team. They are now working together as a unit and will get better as the season progresses,” Thompson claimed. “Everybody is happy that the missing link is now a fit in the team,” she said about Tuffy being back at Waterhouse. “He (Tuffy) has a fractured nose but will be able to play in the next game (against Tivoli Gardens) on Sunday. We’re trying to get a mask for him, so it is not that bad,” Thompson disclosed. “This is a fairly new team with a lot of youngsters and they are growing. We will continue to work as a team. We have put certain things behind and are now moving forward in a positive way,” the female manager further said.
Prime Minister Andrew Holness has indicated that the Government intends to develop a concept to represent the lasting legacy of Jamaica’s sporting heroes. He was speaking while saluting the Rio 2016 Olympians and Paralympians during Saturday night’s symbolic function in in their honour. The event, which was held at the National Indoor Sports Centre on Saturday night, was part of a three-day Heroes’ weekend celebration organised by the Ministry of Culture, Gender Affairs, Entertainment and Sport. The colourful and entertaining evening saw a modest, but very vocal crowd in attendance. “Tonight belongs to the athletes. They made us gather as one people, with one mission in Half-Way Tree, as one people. They kept you on the edge of your couch, willing them on, thousands of miles away through your television, for them to win,” the prime minister said in his remarks. “You shared in the thrill of their victory. And yes, we were sad when they didn’t win, but we willed them on anyway because their victory is our victory,” added Holness to loud applause. “So don’t ask what we are giving to our athletes, which should never be questioned, because my answer is we haven’t done enough. SYMBOLIC “What we are doing here is just symbolic to show that we care about you, our athletes, because you bring pride to our nation. You make Jamaica’s name fly high in the world, and we could never pay you for what you have done in building Brand Jamaica,” the Prime Minister stressed. “So on behalf of a grateful nation, on behalf of all Jamaican people here and in the diaspora I stand here on this stage to say ‘thank you’.” He added: “I have directed the minister of sport, minister of tourism to develop a concept and come to the nation because the nation has to have participation in anything that we do to represent the legacy of our athletes.” There was a sizeable delegation of athletes in attendance, from sprint legend Usain Bolt, to Racers clubmate Yohan Blake, then Asafa Powell, who received the biggest cheers on the men side. On the female side, sprint superstars Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, Elaine Thompson, and Veronica Campbell-Brown were given voracious cheers of approval. Olivia ‘Babsy’ Grange, whose ministry hosted the show, gave tributes to the Olympians, Paralympians, and national chess team, which also competed in Europe during the summer at the World Chess Olympiad in Baku, Azerbaijan. FORERUNNERS Drawing on the popular Jamaican phrase ‘wi likkle but wi tallawah,’ Grange said, “Your success over the years continues to excite and astound the world. I must take this opportunity to once more acknowledge the forerunners who set the stage and built the foundation for those of you who are with us today. “The achievement of our athletes at the Rio Olympics and Paralympic Games is no small feat, and this in spite of our size and our population and limited financial resources,” Grange observed. Over 11,000 athletes competed at the Rio Games, with Jamaica’s 57 athletes finishing 16th of 209 countries and third in track and field behind the United States and Kenya. There were 36 first-time athletes on the team, which won six gold, three silver, and two bronze medals. Most of the nation’s representatives were given special awards. On behalf of Jamaica Olympic Association, Vishwanath Tolan, who served as chef de mission, commended “the performance of all the athletes who have sacrificed their time, money and efforts”, while thanking their coaches and officials. Shot putter Odayne Richards, who was co-captain of the Rio team, delivered the vote of thanks. “On behalf of the Olympic team, Olympians, I would like to say thank you. We really appreciate it and we look to 2017 for more exploits,” said Richards.
OUTSTANDING horizontal and vertical coach at Jamaica College Ruel James will be the honouree at this year’s 24th staging of the Purewater/JC track and field development meet, which takes place on Saturday on the school’s grounds at 189 Od Hope Road, starting at 8:30 a.m.. James, who was an athlete in his time at what is also his alma mater, has contributed significantly to the development of track and field at Jamaica College. Additionally, the Jamaica College Sports Development Committee will also be paying homage to Dr R. Danny Williams for his pivotal role in the transformation of the institution as a former chairman of the board and foundation. As a result, the meet will now be known as Purewater/JC Danny Williams Track and Field Development Meet. The competition, as usual, will serve as an opportunity for early qualification to the Boys and Girls’ Athletics Championships, which will have its 107th staging this year. Beside high schools, invitations have also been extended to athletes from clubs and institutions to compete in open events. For high-school athletes, the first competitive category will be for schools of all types with participation in classes I to III for boys, and classes I to IV for girls. Events down to be contested will be 100m, 800m, 3000m (female) and 5000m (male). There will also be the 70m, 80m, 100m, and 110m hurdles events, as well as long jump, discus, high jump, shot put, and pole vault action in the field. Athletes will again be offered several prizes and incentives for outstanding performances at the meet. Ten individual trophies will be awarded to the athletes selected by the judges in each class and category. These will be presented to the most outstanding performers. It is to be noted that the quality of performance by an athlete will not necessarily be judged in terms of points scored.

UMBC players salute their fans after losing 50-43 to Kansas State a second-round game in the NCAA men’s college basketball tournament in Charlotte, N.C., Sunday, March 18, 2018. (AP Photo/Chuck Burton)UMBC made more than history in the NCAA Tournament.By becoming the first No. 16 seed to beat a No. 1, the Retrievers made about $1.7 million for the America East Conference. Loyola-Chicago’s buzzer-beating run to the Sweet 16 will be worth double that to the Missouri Valley Conference. Nevada’s consecutive comebacks were also worth about $3.4 million for the Mountain West. The MVC and Mountain West will pocket at least as much from NCAA Tournament units as the Pac-12, which had three teams in the field, all bounced after one game each.ADVERTISEMENT Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next UMBC’s athletic budget for 2017 was $9.3 million. NCAA records from 2010-15 show the America East earned a total of eight units and $2,086,514 in basketball revenue.Over that same period of time, the Missouri Valley earned 21 units and $5,477,099. The Mountain West earned 33 and $8,606,870.All that money helps explain why the American Athletic Conference lured tournament-regular Wichita State from the MVC last year, despite the Shockers not having a football team, and why the Mountain West is trying to strike a similar deal to pull Gonzaga out of the West Coast Conference.The Shockers went out in the first round, upset by Marshall, Conference USA’s only tournament team.

The NCAA Tournament generates more than $700 million in revenue for the association and its schools, the vast majority from its media rights deal with CBS and Turner.Units for this year’s tournament are worth approximately $273,000, according to the NCAA, but their value ends up being greater than that.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkThe units are paid out annually each of the next six years, increasing in value each year by about 2-3 percent. The payout system means that one upset by UMBC should be worth more than $1.7 million. Units are earned every game a team appears in, with the exception of the first game played by an automatic qualifier and the NCAA championship game.The money goes to the conferences, unless the school is an independent in basketball. The NCAA encourages equal distribution by conferences among its members, but it is not required. Most do. Scarlett Johansson, Sterling K. Brown among SAG Awards presenters MOST READ Tim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil The Missouri Valley has in the past received multiple bids, but only champion Loyola-Chicago got in as an automatic qualifier this year. The MVC distributes the units revenue equally among 10 members — though the NCAA Tournament participants receive an additional half-share to cover travel expenses, MVC spokesman Ryan Davis said Sunday.The Atlantic Coast Conference has been rolling in units in recent years, with a total of 64 from 2015-17, worth more than $100 million . This season, the ACC got nine teams into the field, more than any other conference, and placed four teams in Sweet 16. Two of them — Duke and Syracuse — play in the regional semifinals, limiting the conference’s earning potential.The Big 12 also placed four teams in the round of 16. The Southeastern Conference and Big Ten each have two.For the ACC — and other Power Five conferences — NCAA units account for less than 10 percent of conference revenue. The ACC reported $373.4 million in revenue for fiscal year 2016 — most of which comes from a television rights deals with ESPN — and paid out about $25 million to each of its members.For low-major Division I schools such as UMBC and the eight other members of the America East, those units are real money.ADVERTISEMENT Recto seeks to establish Taal rehab body to aid community, eruption victims Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina In Liverpool, Man United sees the pain and path to recovery For the complete collegiate sports coverage including scores, schedules and stories, visit Inquirer Varsity.
