“The last thing I expected was to win, but it was an honor to be crowned the first ever CBA Sports Queen,” Evans said. “The sports pageant allowed me to showcase my love for dance and netball and it allowed me to get out of my comfort zone.”

In the Sports King category, 17-year-old Bean, representing the sport of rugby, stamped his authority to take the title of CBA Sports King beating out Tomiko Douglas, 1st runner up, who represented basketball and Jahkeylo Burgess, 2nd runner up, who represented football.

Bean’s confidence was evident throughout the night. “The competition was difficult but I did my best and I am proud of my fellow contestants,” Bean said. “It’s an honour being crowned the first CBA Sports King and I look forward to seeing the new tradition continue to support CedarBridge Academy and all the students at Bermuda’s number one highschool.”

The competition was keenly contested as students competed in four categories including a sports scene where students displayed their various sporting skills, talent, evening gown, and an evening scene question.

In the ‘Sports Queen’ category, Evans, Wears, Stewart and Zuriah Gibson-Daniels, who represented boxing, advanced to the finals after the first four rounds to answer the final question. S2 students Jah-Qala Tucker and Kelise Stewart were the other contestants in the female category.

The audience were treated to an amazing presentation by all contestants, particularly, in the sports scene, where the various sports were depicted.

Our student-athletes are extremely talented and it was an awesome opportunity for them to showcase their sporting skills and their accomplishments.”
