Greaves mixing sports, academics

When the new school year starts next September, one of this country’s top sports personalities will be in a different arena.
Geneille Greaves has carved a name for herself in the cricket circles. But she is one with an adequate balance of sporting and academic prowess. {{more}}She will enter the University of the West Indies in September to pursue studies in sciences.
Minister of Education, Youth and Sports Mike Browne was happy to refer to Greaves’ situation when he addressed the closing ceremony of the Larry Augiste Under-23 West Indies Tournament last week Friday.
Browne echoed the government’s policy that every national player must either be working, be at an institution or a combination of both. Browne was happy to identify with Greaves’ development having noted her prolific performances at the national level over the years.
Greaves has been captain of the Under-23 squad for three years, during which they have taken the title on all occasions.
She has also made her mark at the Senior West Indies rank, and will be on the list of trainees for the World Cup in South Africa next year.
Greaves was a regular on the podium last Friday. She was Player of the Match in the game against Trinidad and Tobago. She was named this country’s best fielder, and had the most catches in the tournament.
She shared the most runs with Trinidad and Tobago’s Marissa Aguillera, 71, but Greaves had the best batting average.
