UTT Students Sports Day 2010


The UTT Sports Day on Friday, March 19th was a great success. The event started at approximately 10.30am with the parade of the teams. A contingent of 16 students from UTT-Tobago came over and lead off the parade of the teams. Since they only attended as observers and were not prepared to participate in the march past they were not judged.

The March Past was spectacular as team after team performed their routine to the delight of the crowd but the judges’ task was certainly a difficult one. In the end only one point separated the 1st and 2nd place winners. S.F.T.I., winners of the last Sports Day's March Past competition placed third this time around. The Knights of John D placed second, with the Lions of Valsayn being adjudged 2010 March Past Champions.

Taking the salute at the saluting base were six(6) officials in the persons of Professor Michael Gray (Acting President), Professor Prakash Persad (Acting Provost), Adlai Robinson (Acting Manager of A.S.L.S.), Cheryl-Ann Jackson (Student Development), N'koma Monsegue (Executive Student Guild President) and Ian Pritchard (Acting Manager, SUCCESS Unit, ASLS).

It was then off to the sporting activities. The events flowed smoothly as the team contracted, surely were professionals at conducting the sporting events. The campuses themselves had their respective teams and individuals well prepared and organised. Every event created fun and excitement among the supporters and spectators.

By 5.30pm Shenelle Lewis from O’Meara campus was declared the Aerobic Champion. The rhythm section burn-out saw Valsayn rolling up their tassa, while ECIAF with their drums and pieces of iron were not going to be rolled over, after all they are the defending champions from the basketball league opening. Corinth tried to be among the big guns in the rhythm section but the real competition was always going to be between Valsayn and ECIAF. The judges(Giselle and her team from 101 Bookstores) had to make a decision which would definitely be unpopular with the members of at least one of the two campus supporters. So they did the best thing and gave prizes to every player of both the rhythm sections. Hats off to 101 Book store, for a job well done.

When Mushtaque Mohammed, Senior Sports Officer, SUCCESS Unit of ASLS, announced that the results were in and the Champions would now be declared, one could hear a pin drop. It came down to either S.F.T.I. Drillers or the Green Revolution of ECIAF. "And the runners-up are" (total silence followed by a drum roll) "S.F.T.I. Drillers." Well, down came every member of the ECIAF team. The rhythm section started up again and the winning team members ran up and down the track, trophy in hand. Everyone was elated for them. Maybe the saying, "The last shall be first" has some truth in it because ECIAF placed 8th in the March Past and first in the overall Sports Day.

The entertainment section organised by the Students Guild brought an end to the day's proceedings. Umi Marcano opened the show, then Sherwyn Winchester got in on the act, Mark Voison of S.F.T.I. was next in line and at 8.00pm Blacks of Roy Cape began his 30 minute performance which brought the curtains down.

All in all, the Sports Day 2010 was really an enjoyable one. The SUCCESS Unit of ASLS and the Students Guild did a great job. Congratulations to the organizers for a successful event.
