Deon Sutherland - Board Secretary, National Sports Council
"The 6 districts are represented by a male and female team from Corozal all the way to Toledo, so they converge here for one day, they play quite a number of games and we will see who will be the champion for this year. Each school represented here are their district champions, they have their own district tournaments. Of course you know some of those districts have a lot of schools, so I believe getting here really means that you are the best of that district."

"So far how many games have been played by both male and female?"
