Panam Silver for Blackbirds
Members of the Blackbirds Hockey Club win silver

They went for gold but settled for silver. Nevertheless, the Blackbirds who journeyed to Peru were still proud of their achievements.

Shani Best, Amaris Chase, D’Jamila Edwards and Jada Prescod left Barbados with the country’s Women’s National Hockey team to participate in the recently concluded Pan American Challenge in Chiclayo, Peru. Despite finishing atop the table standings at the end of the preliminary round, the Bajan lasses were defeated by Brazil 3-1 in the final on Sunday afternoon.

The team celebrated the second place as this means that they have qualified for the 2016 Pan American Cup which will be held in the U.S.A.
