HAPPY TO SERVE: Ephraim Serrette

Ephraim Serrette has been appointed treasurer of the North American, Central American and Caribbean (NACAC) Athletic Association. The National Association of Athletics Administrations of Trinidad and Tobago (NAAATT) president takes over from American Stephanie Hightower.

The cartoon/movie character sprang to mind as I watched replays of Pooran’s breathtaking piece of fielding for King’s XI Punjab in their Indian Premier League match against Rajasthan Royals. For those of you who didn’t see it, Pooran dived upwards and back, a foot or two over the boundary rope to first catch, then throw the ball back into play for a teammate to pick up. He turned five into about one.
