Webb/Bonner, Hamilton/Wright take Just Bet/TvJ SN Beach Volleyball League titles

Shadeiky Hamilton and Kai Wright beat Cherine Richards and Cheryl Daley 2-0 (21-16, 22-20) for the women's crown
Kingston, Jamaica, November 6, 2012 – The men’s team of Ryck Webb and Gatasheu Bonner, and the women’s team of Shadeiky Hamilton and Kai Wright, claimed the top awards in the $300,000 Justbet/TVJ SN Beach Volleyball Competition after winning their respective finals at Barbican November 3.

Bonner and Webb stopped Donovan Richards and Dellan Brown 2-0 (21-18, 21-18) to take the men's title, while Hamilton and Wright beat Cherine Richards and Cheryl Daley 2-0 (21-16, 22-20) for the women's crown.

“We started out setting ourselves a major goal which was to win the tournament,” Bonner told the Jamaica Observer. “Along the way we set ourselves minor goals in not losing a set, and we've achieved that.”

Wright was pleased to have upset the favourites.

“We knew this tournament was going to be hard because they are the national representatives,” said Wright. “They are the first-timers coming in. We just used our indoor skills because we both play for Jamaica and we won this game and I'm just so excited.”

Jamaica Amateur Volleyball Association president Major Warrenton Dixon expressed satisfaction with the outcome of the competition in its inaugural year.

“When we were about to start I said to myself I'm looking forward to the third of November because I want to hear what people would have said about the competition,” he said. “I want to hear people say, 'when are we doing this again', and I'm hearing a lot of those questions.”
