BBF Nationals: Pumpers, Saints win titles


Senior Sports Reporter


IT was all Grand Bahama’s show at the Bahamas Basketball Federation’s National Round Robin Basketball Championship series in Bimini over the weekend.

While Charlie ‘Softly’ Robins was re-elected unopposed as the president of the executive board for the next three years, B&B Galaxy Pumpers clinched the men’s A divisional crown with a 85-84 clincher over New Providence’s PJ Stingers and the Coca Cola Saints secured the B divisional title with a 72-51 rout over the Bimini Marlins.

During the election of officers in the annual general meeting Saturday, Robins and all of the other officers were elected unopposed. There was some changes in positions with Freddie Brown moving up from being an officer to second vice president, dropping incumbent Anastacia Sands-Moultrie to the post of assistant secretary general, while New Providence Basketball Association president Keith ‘Belzee’ Smith and first vice president Alsworth ‘Whitey’ Pickstock joined the ranks. Unfortunately, their additions came at the expense of Family Island delegate Brian Cleare, who was replaced by Smith as third vice president and Grand Bahamian Darrell Sears, whose officers’ position is now held by Pickstock. Grand Bahama got another officer on board in Rodney Wilson.

Those were the only changes in the executive board, which now comprise of the following:

Charlie Robins - president; Mario Bowleg - first vice president; Freddie Brown - second vice president; Keith Smith - third vice president;; Simone Beneby - treasurer; Clifford Rahming - secretary general; Anastacia Sands-Moultrie - assistant secretary general; Eugene Horton - public relations officer and Steven Brown (San Salvador), Asworth Pickstock and Rodney Wilson - officers.
