CALABAR AND CEDAR GROVE CROWNED 2024 RUGBY LEAGUE U14 AND U16 CHAMPIONS.


Calabar U14s


Rugby League Jamaica concluded its U14 and U16 High School 13-a-side Championships on Friday, April 26, at Campion College. In U14 action, 5-time defending champions Calabar High faced off against BB Coke High, whilst in U16, Calabar battled last year’s beaten finalist, Cedar Grove Academy, for top honours.


In the U14s, Calabar overcame a spirited BB Coke outfit 8-4, to grab their 6th consecutive hold on the trophy.  Jahir Brown scored both tries for the winners, whilst Tyrell Scott got the consolidation try for BB Coke.


Cedar Grove then won their maiden U16 title with a clinical defensive display, holding off 14-2. Elvis Simms led the victors with 8 points from 2 tries, support came from Steven Constantine with a try and Nathan Brown kicked a goal for two points.  Derone Plummer kicked a goal to give Calabar their only points.


Commenting on his team’s [performance in both finals, Oshane Edie, head coach of Calabar said, “Our U14s are a new young group who just started playing, it’s a great result to get the win and bodes well for the future. Throughout the season Devontae Molar and Amore Anderson were good for us, their exceptional play along with their teammates gave us the victory. As for our U16s, they had a good season, but I think we were a bit overconfident in the finals and paid the price. Overall, the rugby league programme at Calabar remains strong and is looking good for the future.”


Cedar Grove’s winning coach Antonio Baker attributed victory to hard work, “Winning the U16 crown is a culmination of years of work that has finally paid off. We’ve been close on several occasions before, including past year, when we were beaten finalists, but this season our focus was spot on, and we are happy for the school.”


In other action on the day, Kingston College snatched 3rd place over Campion College 6-4. Armani Burnette with the try for the winners and Donnoy Harris kicking a goal. Meanwhile, Josah Bennett bagged Campion’s lone try.


In Girls action, BB Coke won the final 9-a-side tournament of the school year, Grove Academy 16-8 and 16-4 in a best of three clash.
