Fun run/walk road race to remember ‘Uncle Lou’ By BRENT STUBBS Senior Sports Reporter email@example.com LEVITICUS ‘Uncle Lou’ Adderley, one of the most influential Bahamian sporting personalities, will be remembered by the St Augustine’s College Alumni Association with the staging of another fun run/walk road race. Now into its 11th year, the popular Uncle Lou 10K Fun Run/Walk is all set for 6am Saturday, starting from Rawson Square and ending up on the campus of St Augustine’s College where Adderley served as the first Bahamian principal. Runners will leave Rawson Square and travel south on Parliament Street,
right on Shirley Street, around Princess Street in front of Government House, right on Cumberland Street and onto Bay Street to the Sir Sidney Poitier Bridge to Paradise Island. Once on Paradise Island, the runners will turn right and head over the old bridge and left onto Bay Street, turn right on Village Road and then left on Bernard Road and right to the finish line at St Augustine’s College. For the walkers, they will travel from Rawson Square and travel east all the way to Village Road and turn onto Bernard Road where they will also complete the course on SAC’s campus. Godfrey, or Stephen Robinson, the president of
LEVITICUS ADDERLEY the Alumni Association, noted that registration, which is priced at $15 for children under 15 and $25 for adults, is going rather slow, but he advised that they can still pre-register at the Sports Center in the
Harbour Bay, Sandy Port or Mall at Marathon locations, or prior to the starting time on race day. “This is the 11th annual running of the event and of course Uncle Lou would have celebrated his birthday on Sunday past, so we always try to have the event in the week of his birthday,” said Robinson of Adderley, who passed away in 2003. Adderley, who was a serving deacon at St Anselm’s Roman Catholic Church at the age of 69 at the time of his death, was a former Greco-Roman wrestling champion while attending St John’s University in Minnesota. He was also an outstanding lawn tennis player as well as a baseball,
basketball and volleyball player and executive. He also served as the athletics director and coach at St Augustine’s College where he helped to groom the Big Red Machine into a powerhouse in sports. Adderley eventually founded the Bahamas Association of Certified Officials in 1976 and was also a founding member of the Bahamas Association of Basketball Officials. Robinson, a member of the 2015 graduating class of St Augustine’s College, said he’s hoping that more persons, especially those who attended SAC and competed for the Big Red Machine, will come out and support the event. “I think three years ago we had our
Thompson steps up her game By BRENT STUBBS Senior Sports Reporter firstname.lastname@example.org s a senior at Morgan State University, Danielle Thompson has been called upon to be more of a leader for the Lady Bears women’s division one tennis team. In recent weeks, the Lady Bears lost a couple of players, which has forced Thompson to step up her game and she responded very well in a pair of MEAC Conference games over the weekend. Now performing as the solo captain of the team and in the top spot, Thompson won her singles match with a 6-1, 4-6, 10-7 decision against the University of Pittsburgh on Saturday and 6-2, 6-4 against George Washington University. However, Morgan State lost both matches to drop their win-loss record to 1-6. For Thompson, it has been a pretty rough season, but she’s excited to know that she’s getting into the flow of things after their roster has dwindled from seven to five players with the unexpected loss of two players over the last few weeks. “The last few matches I’ve gotten into my groove and I had to put a lot of stuff behind me and just focus on what I have to do,” she told The Tribune. “I have tried not to let all of what is happening with the team affect me. “I don’t know what happened, but after losing those two players, we are put at a disadvantage and that put a lot of pressure on the remaining players. I know I had to step it up and put it behind me and not allow the other girls to see how it affected me.” With the majority of the other players as freshmen, Thompson said she’s been overwhelmed by the role she has had to take on, but she’s taken charge and the rest of the team has fed off her energy. “We are more motivated because we have a lot more work to do than the other teams,” she said. “Most of the teams we are
playing against have at least 7-10 girls and we are down to just five, so it’s a lot tougher for us to perform.” Despite the circumstances, Thompson said she’s looking forward to leading the Lady Bears going into the remainder of the season when they take on Loyola University in Baltimore on Thursday. Then during their spring break next week, the Lady Bears will head to North Carolina for a pair of conference games against North Carolina A&T State in Greensboro on Thursday, March 20 and North Carolina Central in Durham on Saturday, March 22. “It gives me more motivation to play and prove to myself that I can

we should have on our roster,” she projected. “I know I have to step my game up a lot more. I wouldn’t say that I feel pressured. I am pretty loose now that I got those few wins under my belt against those two big schools that we played. So when I go on the court, I play more loose and confident without any of the negative energy.” As she prepares for the rest of the season, the 5-foot, 2-inch power-packed player will celebrate her 23rd birthday on Friday with a team dinner. ‘Danie,’ as she’s affectionately called, is the daughter of Gail and Stephen Thompson. She is expected to graduate in May with her degree in hospitality management.
Dean won’t be seeking another term as NPSA president By BRENT STUBBS Senior Sports Reporter email@example.com ALTHOUGH he’s now a newly elected executive of the Bahamas Softball Federation, Henry Dean said he won’t be seeking another term in office as president of the New Providence Softball Association.
After sitting in the chair for the past two years, Dean said he won’t be seeking another term when the NPSA goes to the polls to select its new executive team 7pm Thursday in the office at the Banker’s Field in the Baillou Hills Sporting Complex. As they prepare for the elections, Dean advised that only teams that played in the past season will be allowed to vote for the candidates of their choice, who must be present. For those persons who will not be able to attend, Dean said their proxies must be made in writing to the NPSA before the start of the meeting. When asked why he opted not to return, the new second vice president of the BSF at the elections held on Saturday past said he’s done after putting in some measures to help govern the sport in New Providence. “I think we did a wonderful job,” he stated. “We started to put some procedures and practices in order

BIG RED MACHINE EARN TRIP TO PENN RELAYS IN addition to repeating as the overall champions of the National High School Track and Field Championships, the St Augustine’s College Big Red Machine booked three of the four spots for the relay teams that were awarded full rides to the prestigious Penn Relays. The incentives were offered by the Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture from the performances produced during the three-day meet that took place last week at the Thomas A Robinson National Stadium. The Big Red Machine earned the rights for both their under-20 girls 4 x 100 and 4 x 400m relay teams, as well as their under-20 boys 4 x 100m team. They will be joined by Bishop Michael Eldon from Grand Bahama. In the under-20 girls’ 4 x 100m relay, SAC’s team of Aliyah Carter and Doniesha Anderson won the race in 47.84 seconds ahead of St John’s College’s team of Shania Darrell, Jameka Chisolm, Lauryn Carter and Wendira Moss, who finished second in 48.76. Queen’s College’s team of Onnieka Rolle, Tyler Lightbourn, Tyra McKenzie and Craiesha Johnson was third in 49.36. St Augustine’s College’s team of Adderley, Marissa White, Carter and Doniesha won the under-20 girls 4 x 400m relay in 3:56.80 to secure their next berth, holding off Queens College’s team of DeAvae Adderley, Johnson, Mitchell and Danielle Dean, who was second in 4:17.29. CI Gibson Sr got third in 4:21.38 with the team of Rochelle Tibby, Brittany Bastian, Latavia Braynen and Jalexia Philistine. The Big Red Machine’s under-20 boys 4x100m team of Andreas Seymour, Joel Johnson, Oscar Smith and Adrian Curry made sure that they joined their female counterparts by winning in 41.96. They beat out Tabernacle Baptist Academy’s team of Nasterio Williams, Corey Sherrod, Ethnie Stubbs and Shaquiel Higgs, who ran 42.07 for second. Queen’s College’s team of Kristin Major, Lavardo Handfield, Sean Rolle and Max Azor was third in 42.40. The boys under-20 4x400m team from Bishop Michael Eldon won in 3:20.21 for their berth. Their team comprised of William Forbes, Emmit

ADRIAN PETERSON, JORDY NELSON CUT, BREES STAYS WITH SAINTS By BARRY WILNER AP Pro Football Writer ADRIAN Peterson’s short stint in Arizona is over. Jordy Nelson long and productive stay in Green Bay has ended, too. Meanwhile, Drew Brees is staying put in the Big Easy, Case Keenum is headed to the Rocky Mountains, and Kirk Cousins will make his first visit as a free agent to Minnesota. The Vikings long have been considered a natural landing spot for one of the most valuable quarterbacks available. One day before the league’s new year begins, veteran running back Peterson was released by the Cardinals yesterday, and receiver Nelson — Aaron Rodgers’ favourite target — was let go by the Packers. Seven-time All-Pro
running back Peterson began last season with New Orleans but, after barely playing there, was dealt to the Cardinals. Peterson rushed for 134 yards in a win over Tampa Bay and 159 in a win over San Francisco. In six games, he gained 448 yards on 129 carries for Arizona before being sidelined with a neck injury. Peterson, who turns 33 next week, ranks 12th in the NFL in career rushing with 12,276 yards. Nelson had 550 receptions and 69 touchdown catches in 10 seasons in Green Bay. But his production declined last season with Rodgers sidelined much of the year by a collarbone injury. He missed the 2015 season with a major knee injury, and then was the 2016 Comeback Player of the Year.

“We cannot thank Jordy enough for all that he has given the Green Bay Packers and our community for the past 10 years,” general manager Brian Gutekunst said. “He has been an exemplary professional and teammate and greatly contributed to our success.” Brees has agreed to a two-year, $50 million extension with New Orleans, with $27 million guaranteed the first year, two people familiar with the contract told The Associated Press. They spoke on condition of anonymity Tuesday because the agreement has not been announced. Brees is 39 and wants to finish his career in New Orleans, where he has played since 2006, won a Super Bowl and led what has been one of the most productive offenses in the
NFL since he and coach Sean Payton arrived. “I’ll be here as long as they’ll have me,” Brees said after last season ended. In 2017, Brees completed an NFL-record 72 per cent of his passes for 4,334 yards and 23 touchdowns against eight interceptions. He ranked fourth in the NFL in yards passing and the Saints ranked second in the NFL in total offence. Keenum, a backup when the season began, guided Minnesota to the NFC North title and then into the conference championship game. He’ll cash in with the Broncos. The 30-year-old Keenum is considered the secondbest QB available in free agency after Cousins. He went 11-3 with 3,547 yards passing, 22 touchdowns and seven interceptions. His last-second throw to Stefon
Diggs stunned the Saints 29-24 in the playoffs. Denver chose to bypass incumbents Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler and Paxton Lynch and go for Keenum, who can’t sign until today. Six years ago, GM John Elway landed Peyton Manning, the biggest free-agent prize in NFL history, following his release by the Colts and a series of neck fusion surgeries. Manning guided the Broncos to two Super Bowls and won the 2015 NFL championship. Now, Elway hopes another free agent will replicate Manning. Cousins will visit with the Vikings today, agent Mike McCartney said. ESPN reported that Cousins will sign with the Vikings, but McCartney said no decision has been made yet by his client.
Venus beats Serena 6-3, 6-4 at Indian Wells By BETH HARRIS AP Sports Writer INDIAN WELLS, California (AP) — One sister is rusty, just beginning a comeback after having a baby. The other is rejuvenated at 37, back in the world’s top 10. An unwanted rivalry with roots going back 20 years had its latest chapter Monday night at the BNP Paribas Open, with Venus Williams beating sister Serena 6-3, 6-4 in the third round for her first win over her younger sibling since 2014. It was their earliest meeting since a 17-year-old Venus beat 16-year-old Serena in the second round of the 1998 Australian Open. They played Monday night for the first time since
last year’s Australian Open final, when a pregnant Serena won her 23rd Grand Slam title. “That’s going to be a huge story, maybe the story of the year,” men’s No. 1 Roger Federer said of Serena’s comeback. “Hopefully, she decides to play a lot and enjoy herself in the process and get back to who knows how high? It almost doesn’t matter, but it would just be amazing to see her do it now.” But this night belonged to Aunt Venus. She closed out the 1 ½-hour match on her second match point when Serena’s forehand service return sailed long. It was one of Serena’s 41 unforced errors, including 17 on the forehand side. “I’m just lucky that I’ve played more matches than

(AP Photo/Crystal Chatham) her right now,” Venus said on court afterward. “She just came roaring back. I had chances for the match to be over, but it wasn’t.” Venus broke Serena at love in the sixth game for a
4-2 lead in the first set. She emphatically closed out the 36-minute set with back-toback aces that clocked 108 mph and 120 mph. “I definitely know her well, but she definitely
played a little bit better than she normally does,” Serena said. “She served very consistently. She just did everything great.” Venus raced out to leads of 3-0 and 5-2 in the second set. Serena’s shot went wide to set up her sister’s first match point. But Serena cracked a backhand winner down the line for deuce. Venus’ forehand was long and she double-faulted away the game to make it 5-3. Serena held to trail 5-4 with an ace and a clean winner. Venus faced two break points in the next game, but got bailed out on Serena’s consecutive forehand errors to get to deuce. Venus hung on from there to end their 29th meeting. “Missing shots that I never miss, and so close,”
Serena said. “At least they’re in the margin. “I’m getting there. It’s not exactly where I want to be, but I’ll get there eventually.” Serena still owns a 17-12 advantage overall, although Venus evened their WTA Tour head-to-head meetings at 7-7. “I really abhor every time we play, but I do enjoy the battle when I’m out there,” Serena said last weekend. “It’s just afterwards I don’t like it as much.” It was obvious at the net when they greeted each other with a one-arm hug and neither smiled. Venus did her usual victory pirouette, but still didn’t smile. A stone-faced Serena exited the court to cheers, pointing her right index finger in the air.
Fun run/walk road race to remember ‘Uncle Lou’ FROM PAGE 1 this is a way for persons to come back and make a contribution to their alma mater. “There is a bit of disappointment, but we will continue pushing and doing what we have to do to keep his memory alive,” Robinson stated. “We want to try and assist the school in whatever way possible.
“So we are looking forward to trying to reach more of the alumni body as we will also be undertaking a new initiative in the next few weeks. I can’t say anything about it just yet because we are still waiting for the final approval to go forth. But once the announcement is made, we hope that can come forth and assist in this major project.”
As for the road race, Robinson said the alumni association will be in front of the Sports Center in the Harbor Bay Shopping Centre from 10am until 6pm for pre-registration. The last registration will take place starting at 5am on race day. For those who will be seeking transportation, Robinson said they will transport competitors from
SAC on race day for those who wish to park there and for those who park downtown, they will be transported back after the race is completed. Aliv is one of the major sponsors this year and they will be providing four cell phones to the two overall winners in the run, who will receive an Iphone and two Samsung to the two overall winners in the walk.
“We do our normal breakfast, which is chicken souse at the end,” Robinson said. “We will also have three or four raffles, so even if you don’t win in your division, there is still something for everyone to win with the raffle. “We will be doing something different this year as we provide some prizes from our other sponsors.
So we are not just urging SACers to come out, but we want to continue to welcome the running and walking community to come out and support us.” All participants will also receive a commemorative t-shirt as well as a medal for their participation. Trophies will be presented to the first three finishers in each category in both the run and walk.
Big Red Machine earn trip to Penn Relays FROM PAGE 1 Higgins Jr, Braham Najman and Ty Dawkins. Tabernacle Baptist Academy fell short as their team of Nasterio Williams, Devonte Smith, Shaquiel Higgs and Corey Sherrod ran 3:21.68 for second. Doris Johnson’s team of James Augustin, Edward Munroe, Shanton Swain and Venord Burrows was third in 3:21.85. The Penn Relays will take place April 26-28 at the University of Pennsylvania. It’s considered the third most attended track and field event in the world behind the Olympic Games and the IAAF World Championships.
During the Nationals, which served as a qualifier for the CARIFTA Games, at least seven athletes attained the standard and 12 records were broken as the Big Red Machine carted off the title over Queen’s College and the Falcons from Tabernacle Baptist Academy. Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture Michael Pintard, who along with several of his collegiates were on hand to present the medals and trophies to the various winners, said it was an incredible display of talent by the athletes. “It was wonderful to see students coming from the Family Islands and, as you can see, there are a number of teams from the
Family Islands that were dominant in a number of categories,” he said. “What that underscores is that the talent that we have is national in scope and it makes a compelling case as to why it’s important for us to have facilities available because despite the fact that some of these students have been disadvantaged by the facilities they have, inclusive of Grand Bahama, they have prepared well, which is a testimony to their perseverance and the preparation by their coaches.” Pintard said they will now have to work on fine tuning the skills of the coaches and the officials so that they are prepared nationally
to get the athletes ready for the global competition they will be facing, including the upcoming CARIFTA Games, scheduled for March 30 to April 2. “This is wonderful in terms of what I’ve seen over the last few days and I’m looking forward to the CARIFTA Games,” Pintard said. “I think we had a wonderful meet and the CARIFTA Games promises to be even more spectacular.” Rupert Gardiner, the meet director for the Nationals, said it was an outstanding event. “We had a record breaking participation of 67 teams and over 1,600 athletes and so it can only get better and better,” he stated.
TOWNS SCORES 37 TO LEAD TIMBERWOLVES PAST WIZARDS 116-111 By HOWARD FENDRICH AP Sports Writer WASHINGTON (AP) — KarlAnthony Towns recovered from a shot to the mouth that left him down on the court and finished with a season-high 37 points and 10 rebounds, leading the Minnesota Timberwolves to a 116-111 victory over the Washington Wizards on Tuesday night. Towns shot 13 for 17, including making all three of his 3-point attempts, and showed no ill effects after getting knocked in the face with about a minute left in the first half. Entering the fourth quarter in this defense-optional contest, the Wizards were ahead 90-82. The hosts stretched that to a gamehigh edge of 10 points, at 95-85 with 10 minutes left. But a 20-3 run capped by an inside basket from Andrew
Wiggins off Towns’ assist put Minnesota up 105-98 with less than 5½ minutes to go. After the Wizards got within 111-109, Towns sank a corner 3 with 29 seconds left to push the visitors’ lead back up to five. Every starter scored at least 10 points for the Timberwolves, who were coming off a victory over the Golden State Warriors in their previous game. Wiggins scored 16, and Nemanja Bjelica had 17, plus eight rebounds and seven assists. Markieff Morris led Washington with a season-high 27 points, and Bradley Beal added 19. But when Washington had a chance to try to get a tying 3-pointer, down 114-111 and inbounding the ball with 15.8 seconds remaining, Beal — guarded by Towns out on the perimeter — threw a bad pass that was intercepted by Teague.
TIMBERWOLVES centre Karl-Anthony Towns drives against Wizards centre Marcin Gortat (13) last night. (AP) Washington led 59-56 at halftime, thanks to three players in double figures: Morris with 14 points, Tomas Satoransky with 11 and Beal with 10. Towns led
Minnesota with 17. After getting hit late in the second quarter, Towns remained face-down briefly, then rolled onto his back, and Timberwolves coach Tom Thibodeau came out to check on him. Eventually, Towns got up and went over to the bench, holding his chin. Towns was back out there to open the second half, and he kept getting the ball down low — and kept putting it in the hoop. Wizards starting center Marcin Gortat, in particular, put up little resistance while trying to guard the All-Star known by his initials, KAT. Both teams are without AllStar guards at the moment. The Timberwolves are missing Jimmy Butler, who had surgery on his right knee on Feb. 25, while the Wizards don’t have John Wall, out since late January because of an operation on his left knee.
“The meet was designed to follow the way of the NCAA meets and that was why it was so successful. “We had a very good team of organisers who came together like Margaret Wilson, Kim Hanna, Shekietha Dames, the PS, the Director of Youth, the NSA, BACO, the Tex team, everybody came together and made it successful.” The focus now switches to the final CARIFTA trials this weekend at the stadium that will be hosted by the Bahamas Association of Athletic Associations. It comes two weeks before the CARIFTA Games return to the Bahamas for the eighth time over the Easter holiday weekend.

Iniesta’s return key for Barcelona against Chelsea By TALES AZZONI AP Sports Writer MADRID (AP) — Andres Iniesta has a knack for great performances against Chelsea. His injury-time goal in the semi-finals of the 2009 Champions League remains one of the most important of his career. And he also scored against the English club in the 2012 semi-finals, even though Barcelona was eliminated that time. In the first leg of this year’s encounter between the two teams, it was Iniesta who set up Lionel Messi’s important away goal in a 1-1 result that gave the Spanish club an edge going into today’s return match at Camp Nou Stadium. It’s unclear, though, if Iniesta will get a chance to thrive against Chelsea again on Wednesday. The midfielder is nursing a hamstring injury in his right leg and is listed as doubtful for the second leg. The 33-year-old Iniesta had to be replaced in the first half of Barcelona’s
Spanish league match against Atletico Madrid on March 4. He grabbed his right thigh before going down and requesting medical attention in the 22nd minute at Camp Nou. He returned to the match but lasted only about 10 minutes before being substituted. Iniesta was expected to be out for at least two weeks but appeared to be recovering ahead of schedule. He practiced with the rest of his teammates Monday for the first time since the injury, finishing the session without any problems. He also was on the pitch during the team’s final practice yesterday. “It’s a huge game, and you need to be 100 per cent ready to play in games like these,” Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde said Tuesday. “We will see how he does in the last training session and then we will make a decision. “Of course, when it comes to an elimination match, the player is more inclined to take risks,”
easy time picking his substitute. Andre Gomes, who replaced Iniesta when he had to leave the match against Atletico, has been constantly jeered by part of Barcelona fans because of his lacklustre performances. Paulinho started the season well but hasn’t played at the same level recently, and Denis Suarez is out injured. Philippe Coutinho could have been a viable option but he is ineligible after having already played in this season’s Champions League with Liverpool before being signed by Barcelona. “We don’t have anyone similar, because Iniesta is unique, but there are players who can play in a similar function, like Denis, Coutinho, Gomes ...,” Valverde said. “We have several options, we’ll see.” Valverde could even consider drastically changing the team’s tactical scheme by replacing Iniesta with Ousmane Dembele, who played well in the team’s 2-0 win at Malaga in the
FC Barcelona’s coach Ernesto Valverde attends a press conference yesterday at the Sports Center FC Barcelona Joan Gamper in Sant Joan Despi. (AP) Valverde said. “But you have to weigh how big is this risk.” Chelsea coach Antonio Conte said it would be good for football if Iniesta got to play. “We are talking about a great player. There are many great players, with great talent, but he is a football genius,” Conte said. “I don’t know if he will play, but in games like these it is right that you face the best players, so I hope he doesn’t miss out.” Iniesta’s importance for Barcelona goes beyond his past heroics against Chelsea.
The team’s captain, Iniesta has been crucial for the Catalan club recently as the team’s other midfielders have struggled. “We all know what Andres adds to the team, both on the field and as the captain,” Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets said. “You give him the ball and he always knows what to do with it. He always brings something positive. We have one last training and we hope that he will be fit. He will have the last word.” If Iniesta can’t play today, Valverde won’t have an

Spanish league on Saturday. It would be a much more aggressive set up, adding another forward to play alongside Messi and Luis Suarez. Messi, who is having another stellar season, is certain to return to the squad after missing the Malaga match because of the birth of his third son, Ciro. Messi scored the equaliser in the first leg after Iniesta smartly recovered a ball in attack and avoided a defender’s tackle before making a soft pass to the Argentina playmaker inside the area. In 2009, it was Messi who rolled the ball for Iniesta’s strike from outside the area in the third minute of injury time at Stamford Bridge, silencing the Chelsea crowd and putting Barcelona on track to winning another Champions League title. Iniesta was optimistic he would get another chance to thrive like that against the English club. “Getting closer,” he said, “day after day.”
