Wolmer's to defend KO cricket title

Jamaica Observer article.

Kingston, Jamaica - Defending champions Wolmers' Boys will be seeking to retain the Inter-secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA) Jamaica International Insurance Company (JIIC) Urban Area Knockout cricket title at Heroes Circle when the competition bowls off today.

Wolmer's grabbed the title last year when they recorded a six-wicket victory over St Jago to make it a double after earlier copping the Grace Shield title.

The maroon-and-gold-clad boys, along with last year's beaten finalist St Jago High, have been given a bye into the second round and are now awaiting their opponents. They are among the 30 schools slated to take part in the 40-over competition.

The other high school teams are St Catherine, Camperdown, Pembroke Hall, Waterford, Spanish Town, Bridgeport, Kingston College, Papine, Holy Trinity, Jonathan Grant, Meadowbrook, Innswood, Eltham, Tarrant, Kingston Technical, St George's College, Excelsior, Edith Dalton James, Jamaica College, St Andrew Technical, Norman Manley, Jose Marti Technical, Mona, Ardenne, Calabar, Tivoli, Campion College, and Dunoon Technical.
