ST. THOMAS - It's beginning to look a lot like Charlotte Amalie High School's season on the hardwood.
The St. Thomas powerhouse went to the Eudora Kean Tournament last weekend and swept both the girls and boys championships.
On Friday night, the Chickenhawks went to their rival's gym and did it again.
CAHS won both games of a varsity doubleheader against Kean with a 54-16 girls win and a 53-43 victory for the boys.
The U.S. Virgin Islands Soccer Association announced the hiring of Ahmed Mohamed as its national men's team coach on Thursday.
He will guide the team as it prepares for its World Cup qualifying matches next month.
Mohamed has 17 years of experience as a coach and player in Somalia and Switzerland, according to a release from the association.
"I can't wait to start," Mohamed said in a release from the association. "I want to help the USVI players and show them how they can play well and play professionally."
St. Thomas horse racing fans will see the reigning "it" horse of the Virgin Islands on Sunday afternoon.
But Lauritz David, the president of the St. Thomas-St. John Horsemen Association, said a new horse on the island could end up stealing the show at Clinton Phipps Racetrack.
St. Moose of St. Croix, owned by James Bates, won a Triple Crown race in January on Tortola, running away from the field.
St. Moose will race in the eighth race for a $7,000 purse against a trio of competitors, including Governor's Cup winner Swag Daddy, along with Exploring and Doughmaker, which are both making their St. Thomas debuts.
Six members of the St. Croix Dolphins swim team traveled to Fort Washington, Pa., to compete in the UDAC Closed Invite at Upper Dublin High School from Feb. 20-24.
The swimmers were Antonio Lewit, 15; Daniel Garriga-Cerni, 15; Ashton Patalidis, 13; Lidia Boguslawska, 13; Erin Andrews, 11; and Brianna Mattis, 9.
The competition was divided by age groups - 13 years and older competed in the morning each day and 12 and under competed in the afternoon session.
ST. CROIX - The nominee to head the Bureau of Internal Revenue, Marvin Pickering, barely cleared his first hurdle, receiving four of seven votes during Wednesday's hearing before the Senate Rules and Judiciary Committee.
Pickering's nomination now moves out of committee to the full Senate body with a favorable recommendation.
Pickering - who spent most of his professional career as the chief financial officer for Cruzan Rum - was a gubernatorial candidate who lost to Donna Christensen in the Democratic primary election with 10.64 percent of the votes in August.
ST. CROIX - The nomination of Devin Carrington, Gov. Kenneth Mapp's choice to head up the Department of Licensing and Consumer Affairs, passed unanimously through the Senate Rules and Judiciary Committee with a favorable recommendation Wednesday.
One of the main topics of discussion during the proceedings was gasoline prices throughout the territory.
"Through awareness and vigilance, the consumer must make studied and discriminating choices on how they spend their hard-earned money," Carrington said. "I submit that making such choices is not always easy when, for example, the price of gas is identical from station to station, thereby eliminating the critical component of competition."
