Cargill seeks more funding for CARIFTA swimming

 Algernon Cargill.

The Bahamas CARIFTA swim team will be in action in less than a week in Willemstad, Curacao, looking to win a fifth straight title. President of the Bahamas Aquatics Federation Algernon Cargill said that it is an expensive mission and although Corporate Bahamas has done a good job, the federation is still in need of funds. The team is set to leave on Tuesday.

According to Cargill, the trip exceeds $200,000 and they were able to raise $65,000 through individual sponsors as well as support from the Bahamas Olympic Committee (BOC) and the Government of The Bahamas. He said he is grateful for them stepping up and supporting the team, but added that there is still a shortfall of about $80,000.

“We will find a way, even if we have to use reserve funding for other trips to pay for the trip to CARIFTA. It’s so important to be able to represent The Bahamas and go to defend our CARIFTA title that we have won for four consecutive championships,” Cargill said.

It is not going to be an easy road for The Bahamas, as Guadeloupe will be returning to action and all of the other countries will be looking to dethrone The Bahamas. Cargill knows that they will have to put their best effort forward in the pool.

Although they have been winning championships, six of the last seven, Cargill said that they have not been getting the support that they should be getting. He chalks it up to a misconception that swimming has been historically viewed as an elitist sport.

“It’s so unfortunate and so far from the truth,” Cargill said. “I agree that back in the day, maybe the early 70’s, swimming was made up of upper middle-class Bahamians, but now we have swimmers from all cross sections of life involving both swimming and water polo in the Bahamas Aquatics Federation. As a matter of fact, we have every socioeconomic status here in Bahamas Aquatics, but we are still branded with that label from years ago of being an elitist sport and we are seeking to dispel that label, because we are not.”

Cargill added that swimming parents also make sacrifices like the other sports like track and field and they sacrifice to create opportunities for their children. The swimmers’ day usually starts around 4:30 a.m. and they’re in the water by 6 a.m. Then they go to school, find time for their homework, then back in the water and then repeat itself, Cargill said. He said that there are some 160 swimmers with a Grade Point Average (GPA) of 3.0 or above.

Cargill commended the Local Organizing Committee (LOC) for the 50th Oaktree CARIFTA Games for raising the amount of funds that they did for CARIFTA track and field but added that they in swimming have gotten the short end of the stick.

“Yes, we’re disappointed. Yes, we don’t understand why Corporate Bahamas continues to see this sport as an elite sport,” Cargill said. “Don’t get me wrong, we’re happy that they’re able to raise nearly $2,000,000 or so in support of hosting the CARIFTA Games, but we are not happy that while they’re able to raise that amount, we were able to raise $65,000 despite a lot of effort going into that exercise. We will demonstrate to Corporate Bahamas that although the support is small, the result will be substantially big and we will continue to put The Bahamas on the map as a very strong swimming country. Our goal is to fight for every single point in Curacao and to retain the CARIFTA title.”

It is not too late to support the CARIFTA swimming team, Cargill said. He said any financial support is greatly appreciated and welcomed.

“It is important to note that we are very transparent with our fundraising and we are very transparent with our financial statements. We’re very accountable for the funds for Bahamas Aquatics. We have financial statements that are available for review. We are reviewed by a reputable accounting firm. It is not as if we have funding that goes in the black hole. We’re transparent with the funds and we will demonstrate what the costs were, how much was raised and where the shortfall is, and where it came from among other things,” Cargill said.

Persons looking to sponsor the team can contact Bahamas Aquatics at

The Bahamas will be hosting CARIFTA Aquatics next year and will hopefully be looking to win a sixth straight title in front of the home fans.

Giants put Rockets on the ropes

They take a commanding 2-0 lead in the series over the defending champs

 The Commonwealth Bank Giants took a 2-0 lead in their NPBA Division I best-of-five championship series over the Discount Distributors Liquors Rockets on Wednesday night. DANTE CARRER

The Commonwealth Bank Giants took over in the second half on Wednesday night and won convincingly, 101-83, over the defending New Providence Basketball Association (NPBA) Division I defending champions Discount Distributors Liquors Rockets. With the victory they take a commanding 2-0 lead in the best-of-five championship series.

Leading the way for them at the A.F. Adderley Gymnasium was Michael ‘Furley’ Bain Jr. who poured in a game-high 19 points. The Rockets’ Able Joseph matched game-high honors with 19 points in the loss.

Head Coach for the Giants Perry Thompson said they needed to play better than they did in the first game, and they did.

“I feel like we came out from the jump and played a better and more complete game overall, so it’s a great feeling. We get to play game three with no pressure,” Thompson said.

The game was a close one at the half as the Rockets led 48-46. It looked like it was going to be another thriller like the first game that was close wire-to-wire. Instead, the Giants went into another gear in the third quarter. They went ahead early in the third and increased the lead to 63-56 with 5:20 left in the quarter after Salathiel Dean completed a three-point play. Lerecus Armbrister, who was a huge help for the Giants off the bench with 16 points, made 3-of-4 shots from the field and gave the Giants their first double-digit lead of the game when he sank two free throws. He gave them a 67-56 lead with 3:57 left in the third quarter. A 26-15 advantage in the third quarter put the Giants in the driver’s seat as they led 72-63 going into the fourth.

In the fourth quarter, the Giants took control of the game and the series. They jumped out to an 86-71 lead with 4:51 left in the fourth quarter. The Rockets didn’t have enough energy to mount a come back and tie the series. Now, they will return tonight in an attempts to avoid a sweep in game three that gets underway at 7 p.m.

Thompson said that the Rockets swept them last year and this year they are looking to return the favor.

The Rockets lost forward Livingston Munnings in the first quarter as he injured his ankle. Munnings was instrumental in the first game with 24 points and 16 rebounds. The Rockets could certainly use his services for a better chance of defending their title.

The Giants shot the ball well in the second game, making 44 percent of their shots from the field. The Rockets shot poorly from the field, hitting just 33 percent.

In the early game, the second game of the NPBA Division II championship between the Produce Express Rockets and the Your Essential Store Giants, the Rockets came back from a 10-point deficit to get a 80-76 victory to tie the series 1-1.

Assistant Coach for the Rockets Julian Colebrooke said that they needed to fix their rebounding and hustle as they needed to win and avoid going down 0-2 in the series. They did just that. They used a 30-21 fourth quarter advantage to get the victory.

With the score tied at 75, Randy Blanfort made a layup to give the Rockets their first lead of the game since the first quarter. They led 77-75 with 1:15 left in the fourth quarter and the layup helped trigger an 8-1 scoring run for the Rockets.

“In game three, we are looking to execute in a way that we know how to,” Colebrooke said. “We need to box out, play defense and force them to make turnovers.”

The Rockets got 21 points from Jefferson Oliver to help them in the victory. The Giants’ Brandon Strachan came away with a game-high 24 points in the loss.

The third game is set for tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the A.F. Adderley Gymnasium.

Sailors take part in the Bahamas Youth Olympic Championships

 Craig Ferguson takes part in the Bahamas Youth Olympic Championships, hosted by the Bahamas National Sailing School and the Nassau Yacht Club, at Montagu Bay last weekend. ROBERT DUNKLEY

The annual Bahamas Youth Olympic Championships was hosted this past weekend by the Bahamas National Sailing School and the Nassau Yacht Club, with sailing at Montagu Bay.

There were close to 70 participating sailors, ranging from ages eight to 17, sailing in three different classes – the Optimist, Laser and Sunfish. The New Providence sailors were joined by a crew of sailors from Eleuthera, Harbour Island, Long Island and the Turks and Caicos Islands.

The sailors enjoyed relatively light winds on Saturday, but the conditions picked up on Sunday, posing some challenges for the less experienced sailors.

The 10-boat Laser fleet was won by Joshua Weech, and finishing second and third, respectively, were Zachary Knowles and Craig Ferguson, who all sail with the Bahamas National Sailing School.

The clear winner in the Sunfish fleet was Dawson Knowles from Long Island, with Jaron Francis and Delano Davis of the Bahamas National Sailing School in second and third, respectively. It was particularly noteworthy that a Long Island sailor won so competitively, as their local junior sailing club, led by Mack Knowles, has been inoperational for a few years since hurricane damage, COVID-19 and other issues forced its closure. A number of Long Island parents and volunteers are now trying to re-establish the club with assistance from the Bahamas Sailing Association. They seek financial backing from the government and corporate sectors in order to buy boats and equipment to get them back afloat.

A large 21-boat green fleet of optimist sailors was won by 12-year-old Rudolph Ferguson of the Bahamas National Sailing School with Zoya Manwatkar of Lyford Cay and Kai Harvey of the Bahamas National Sailing School finishing second and third, respectively.

The competition in the Optimist championship was very strong. The 25 participating sailors were battling for their national rankings to qualify for the international race team. Those who qualify will represent The Bahamas at the Optimist World Championships in June in Antigua and Barbuda and several other high-profile international events. The first and second places were taken by Eliza Denning and Patrick Tomlinson, respectively, both of Lyford Cay/Royal Nassau Sailing Club, while Finley McKinney-Lambert from the Eleuthera Sailing Academy finished in third place.

The Bahamas National Sailing School thanked the Nassau Yacht Club for its ongoing hospitality and the Bahamas Olympic Committee for their continued support of junior sailing over the years and sponsorship of this extremely popular junior event.

Jones has first career double-double in the NBA

It was a significant night for Bahamian post player Kai Jones as he scored a career-high 12 points and pulled down a career-high 14 rebounds on Tuesday, recording his first double-double in the National Basketball Association (NBA) and helping his team, the Charlotte Hornets, record a 137-134 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Playing on the road at the Paycom Center in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Jones led his team in rebounds and they collectively played the role of spoiler to the Thunder who are looking to advance to the NBA playoffs. They have a 37-39 win/loss record, tied for 10th in the Western Conference of the NBA. The Hornets have already been eliminated. They have a 25-51 record. However, they have been a thorn in the side of playoff contenders. They are coming off two wins over the Dallas Mavericks prior to their win over the Thunder.

Jones came off the bench and played 22 minutes in which he made the most of it by going a perfect 5-for-5 from the field and making two out of three free throws. Three of his field goals were slam dunks. The NBA sophomore also had one assist and stayed grounded as he did not commit a single foul. He had 11 defensive rebounds and three offensive rebounds and a plus-minus of plus 17.

Jones did most of his damage in the first half, going 3-for-3 from the field. He made both of his free throws in that half and scored eight points. He also had five rebounds in that half. He played six minutes in the fourth quarter and crashed the boards again, finishing with five rebounds in the fourth.

The Hornets were led by P.J. Washington who had 22 points in the fourth quarter to finish with a career-high 43. Isaiah Joe led the Thunder with 33 points.

The game had eight ties and eight lead changes. The Thunder held a 68-57 lead at halftime, but the Hornets got back in the game. They kept trying to cut into the lead in the third quarter. They got it down to six points with 4:24 left in the third quarter, 88-82. The Thunder extended their lead to as much as nine points before the Hornets were able to bring it down back to six, ending the quarter down, 99-93.

The Hornets got off to a great start in the fourth quarter as they went on a 16-2 scoring run, enabling them to take a 109-101 lead with 8:44 left in the game. That eventually ballooned to a double-digit lead as JT Thor put the Hornets up 117-107 with seven minutes left. The Thunder came back, tying the game at 129 with 2:08 left. It was a nailbiter the rest of the way but the Thunder had some poor free throw shooting, and the Hornets were able to hold on for the victory.

The 6’11” big man is seeing the court more in March, averaging 15.2 minutes per game and he was featured in 12 games. He is averaging 4.4 points and 4.6 rebounds per game in March as the Hornets give their younger players an opportunity with the season winding down. This season, Jones has played in 41 games and is averaging 3.2 points and 2.7 rebounds in 10.7 minutes per game.

The Hornets are riding a three-game winning streak and return home to take on the Chicago Bulls (36-39) at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina, at 7 p.m. on Friday.

‘Jazz’ signed to Jordan brand

Bahamian pro baseball player ecstatic, looking forward to the ‘23 season

 Bahamian professional baseball player with the Miami Marlins Jasrado ‘Jazz’ Chisholm Jr. has signed with the Jordan brand that is owned by iconic basketball legend Michael Jordan.

The endorsements and opportunities just keep rolling in for Bahamian professional baseball player Jasrado ‘Jazz’ Chisholm Jr., as he signed with the Jordan brand that is owned by iconic basketball legend Michael Jordan. The announcement was made yesterday by Chisholm’s agency, Roc Nation Sports.

It is a huge accomplishment for the Miami Marlins’ center fielder, who is the second Bahamian behind the Charlotte Hornets’ Kai Jones – who had a career night on Tuesday – to sign with the Jordan brand. He adds his name to the short list of Major League Baseball (MLB) players to sign with the brand. The announcement came on the eve of MLB Opening Day as the Marlins take on the New York Mets at 4.10 p.m. today.

“It’s just iconic, as simple as that,” the 25-year-old said. “It means everything for me. I’m always the guy who never wanted to do the same thing as other people. I always wanted to be one of a few, I mean not one of many. It’s great that this is what I always wanted and this is what I’m glad to be a part of.”

Earlier this year, ‘MLB The Show 23’ video game had Chisholm as their cover athlete. Ironically, the game dropped on Tuesday, a day before he became a part of the Jordan brand. MLB players who are with the Jordan brand inlcude the New York Yankees’ Aaron Judge, the Toronto Blue Jays’ Vladimir Guerrero Jr., the San Diego Padres’ Manny Machado, the Yankees’ Aaron Hicks, the Philadelphia Phillies’ Taijuan Walker and the Los Angeles Dodgers’ Mookie Betts.

At his birthday celebration that the Bahamas Baseball Association (BBA) had for him in February, Chisholm spoke about his encounter with Jordan.

“I was at a tournament and Jordan was sneaking out of the back and I caught him. I had his picture and I asked him to sign it. He said, ‘no, make me one day want to have your autograph.’ That was me meeting Michael Jordan and I haven’t met him since that day,” Chisholm said.

The left-handed hitter is looking to improve his performance from the 60 games he played in last season. Last year, he had a batting average of .254 with 14 home runs, 45 RBIs (runs batted in) and 39 runs scored. He had 12 stolen bases, finished with an on-base percentage (OBP) of .325 and an on-base plus slugging percentage (OPS) of .860. He was initially set to be out for a few weeks with a lower back strain, but, on July 21, after a CT (Computerized Tomography) scan, it was revealed that he had a stress fracture in his lower back and was forced to shut down his 2022 season.

The Bahamian was named as a starter for the MLB All-Star game for the National League last season but did not play due to the injury he sustained. He is the first Bahamian to be selected to an all-star team in MLB and the fifth player in Marlins history to be voted in as a starter.
