Tuesday, February 15, 2005 – St. Lucia’s top sports performers for 2004 will be recognised this weekend, as the Department of Youth and Sports prepares to stage the annual Sports Awards Ceremony at the National Cultural Centre this Saturday night.

Nominations have been made by the various national sporting associations for the prestigious awards, and shortlists from the various categories have already been made by the Department of Youth and Sports.

Youth and Sports Officer Philip Anthony told the GIS, that the programme for the evening would maintain its focus on the sports personalities being honoured: “In the last few years, the programme has been changed slightly because we used to have a feature speaker. But because of many complaints that the ceremony was dragging on for hours and hours and was taking away from the athletes who were being honoured on the night, we decided to take this part out of the programme. But the other parts in terms of speeches by the Permanent Secretary and the Minister will be on, and in terms of entertainment, we have a skit and a dance before we get down to the actual awards.”

Short listed for the Junior Male award are, Darwin Edwards, Craig Emmanuel and Alberton Richilieu jnr. and for Junior Female, Tresssa Ann Charles, Maria David and Danielle Beaubrun.

Laverne Spencer, Nadine George, Sherma Isidore, Sarah Alexander and Natasha George are short listed for the Senior Female award and among the men are Darvin Edwards, Darren Sammy, Charlie Sonson, Jonathan Calderon and Vernon Lewis.
