National Under-17 head coach, Andrew Edwards, is highly confident that this team has enough talent to do well in the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) tournament in Trinidad and Tobago. The team left yesterday for the Under-17 tournament that kicks off tomorrow. Jamaica advanced to the final stage after easily winning Group Four in the previous stage in July. They had wins against Guyana, 4-1; Antigua and Barbuda, 3-1; and the US Virgin Islands 9-0. Now, the Jamaicans are placed in Group A for the final round of qualifiers to the CONCACAF tournament and ultimately the FIFA Under-17 World Cup next year. “We have an absolutely fantastic chance as we have a team that can qualify for the CONCACAF tourney,” Edwards told The Gleaner yesterday. “I think the talent level and discipline in the team are very good. The youngsters play to instruction, and that is very important in moving forward,” he shared. The Jamaicans will play against Bermuda tomorrow, then Haiti on Sunday and finish the group stage when they face hosts Trinidad and Tobago next Tuesday. In Group B, the teams are Cuba, Curacao, Suriname and Guadeloupe. After the completion of the group stage, the top two teams from each group will advance to the semi-finals scheduled for September 23. The final will be on September 25. Also, the top five teams from the CFU tourney will move on to the CONCACAF tournament in Honduras in November.

March 12, 2003Golf at Arcosanti? The amazing ‘Dinky Links’ tournament is the brainchild of alumnus Richard Johnson and originated in Jerome, Arizona. Eli Michael lines up his shot.

This much more difficult course consists of 12 holes, four of them in the Minds Garden, two on the sloping way to camp, three in camp and three on the far side of the Agua Fria river.
