Home Sports James “Kool” Lewis concludes Inter Ministries Day of Sports
The figurative curtains have come down on the “Weekend of Sports” organised by veteran sports organiser James ‘Kool’ Lewis to foster social cohesion among the various staffers of the public service.
Two successful events were hosted over the weekend. On Friday, the Inter-Ministries KO Domino Competition played at the Ministry of Agriculture’s canteen was won by the GGMC team. Coming in second was the Ministry of Agriculture’s NDIA, while the GPF’s Felix Austin Training College settled for third place.
The victorious team won the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Trophy and a cash prize from Guyoil, while second and third placers won trophies and cash incentives respectively.
In the highly anticipated tape-ball cricket competition, the fans were given opportunity to see various teams within their respective ministries play at the National Cultural Centre Tarmac on Saturday. The Ministry of Public Health’s GPHC team and the Ministry of Education team met in the final, as each had breezed through their preliminary stages without competition, and were poised and ready for action.
In the end, GPHC got the better of the Education side. Batting first, Ministry of Education were able to post an impressive 73-6 in their allotted 6 overs; but this wasn’t enough for the Education side to defend, as GPHC chased the target down with ease to be crowned 2019 champions.
GPHC received a $50,000 cash prize and trophy, while the Ministry of Education settled for runners-up position.
The veteran Lewis has celebrated 40 years of working in the public service, 30 years of which have been spent working with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
For further information on future competitions, interested persons/ministries can contact Lewis on 628-1656 or 666-5857. All trophies and medals were donated by sitting ministers to successfully host the event.
