Mental strength key to success
"I think that as a team we have managed to continue to motivate each other, even when we were nervous and things weren't going our way, we always try to remain focused on our goals," said Brown.
"I think that this championship is very special to us because this was a very tough series. The games were very close, it was very exciting because the Waulgrovians team played right to the end," she said.
The Clarendon-based Jamalco, defeated Waulgrovians 44-42, to record an exciting come-from-behind 2-1 series win over their opponents on Monday night at the Leila Robinson Courts. Waulgrovians won the opening game 49-42, while Jamalco took the second 50-46.
The 25-year-old, Brown, who was winning her second title with Jamalco, said she was very pleased with her performance.
Admire the senior players
"I think that I did a good job in contributing to the success of my team this season. I always admire the senior players, Nadine Bryan and Elaine Davis, for encouragement throughout the series and have always been encouraged by them to put my best foot forward," said Brown, a former St Hugh's High School standout.
She admitted being nervous prior to the finals.
"I was bit nervous but I think that it is normal for any player."
Brown, the former captain of the national Under-16 team which won the Caribbean Champion-ships in Antigua in 1998, also played on the Under-21 team. However, Brown admitted she has no plans of playing on the national senior team now.
"I don't have any plans on going to the national team because I am focusing on starting school in September and so I don't want to put too much extra-curricular activities on my plate, because I want to make that my focus - on my studies," said Brown, who will be representing Bank of Nova Scotia in this season's Business House competition, which will begin shortly.
