President of the Saba Volleyball Association Johan Schaeffer praised Coach Derek Spence and Teacher Jarmila Wilson-Berkel. “They took care of everything, from inviting the audience and making sure snacks and drinks were available, to high standard refereeing, scoring and arranging linesmen. A standard that will prepare Saba’s excelling players for international matches.”
