Brandon White captured the Most Points and Most Rebounds Individual AwardsThe National Secondary Schools Sports Association was the official representative of the country to the Central American Scholar Games that were held in Guatemala City over the last two weeks. This year’s CODICADER Games were originally scheduled to be hosted by Panama, but because of financial constraints they were not able to do so. As a result, the games were then redistributed between Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras and Panama.

For the first time since Belize started to participate in the scholar games, the student-athletes were able to hold their own against student-athletes of their own age in Central America. The 2012 Edition of the Games started off with Ladyville Technical High School winning the Gold Medal in girls’ softball.

This was followed by Sadie Vernon boys winning the Gold Medal in Basketball. This was followed by St. Catherine Academy girls winning the Bronze Medal in Volleyball. St. Catherine Academy was also the representative in girls’ basketball at these games while Toledo Community College was the representatives for the boys’ volleyball.

Belize will participate in Football and Athletics in El Salvador during the second half of the CODICADER Games.

We say congratulations to all our student-athletes that represented and will represent Belize in the Central American Scholar Games.
