rapo, next Tuesday, will benefit from a sponsorship

Room, Marriott Hotel, Invaders Bay, Mucurapo, yes-
terday, was Rae-Ann Clement-Harper, Consumer
Marketing Manager-Powder Beverages of Nestle.
Clement-Harper first pointed out that her company
was very pleased to once again be the sponsors of the
Milo Games and explained that the relationship was
born 29 years ago. Since then Milo has seen the games
grow from strength to strength and is very pleased
to be associated with such excellence in sport.
She added: "The Milo brand is committed to nour-
ishing the nation s children, their bodies and minds,

opment of their ambitions and their passion for sport.

today I see so much talent and future Olympic medallist
just like Hasely Crawford, Ato Boldon, Richard Thomp-
son and Jehue Gordon.

become part of our DNA at Nestle, being very much

"These Milo Games, however, takes us to another
level, as sport in itself not only contributes to physical
well being, but also plays a major role in holistic devel-
Doldron added: "At this time when our young chil-
dren and our society at large are faced with many
negative forces, engaging in sporting activities, being
part of a team, and focusing on what is good, can only
help to keep us motivated and committed to living a
"Today with the launch of the 29th Milo Games,
we further strengthen our commitment to ensuring
the health and well being of our young athletes by
supporting their goals and aspirations to succeed, cre-
ating an opportunity for them to train, focus and reap
the benefits of their hard work and in so doing become

contribution to T&T in the near and distant future,"

The University of T&T (UTT) called
on Chrisann Petrovanie to lead again
and that is exactly what she did, steer-
ing her team to another victory in the
Championship Division of the Courts
All Sectors Netball League on Tuesday
The court at the Eastern Regional
Indoor Sports Arena, Tacarigua, has
become the stumping ground of the
six-footer, who netted 31 goals off 36
attempts to guide UTT to a 55-40 win
Her consistency has led UTT to vic-
tories over the past three days. On Mon-
day, she helped the newly promoted
UTT team capture its first title in the
division, the Jean Pierre Challenge. The
goal-shooter scored 21 from 33 in the
knockout final to beat Fire Services, 35-
31. This after connecting 15 off 22 in
the opening round of the Challenge to
eliminate Police, 26-25.
However, the win wasn t as straight-
forward as the final score portrayed as
Bermudez came out the aggressor, taking
the first quarter, 13-11. By the second
period, UTT switched its shooters,
installing Petrovanie and goal-attack
Akeela Rodriguez (13/16) to replace
George-Ann Horsford (4/5) and Shanon
Duncan (7/14), respectively in the cir-
cle.This strategy effected change imme-
diately and the University girls forged
ahead, 25-18 to close the half. UTT s
defence was at its best also as in the
third quarter it only allowed Bermudez
to score nine goals compared to UTT s
16.Bermudez was improved somewhat
offensively in the fourth period, almost
matching its opponent scoring, 14 to
13 but it was not enough to overcome
the huge deficit and had to settle for
the 15-goal loss.
Shooting for Bermudez were Jocelyn
Marcelle (21/26), Indra Anderson (10/12)
and Melissa Rambarsingh (9/12).
In the earlier match, Prisons had no
mercy on Police, crushing them 43-19
in the Alternative Division. Goal-attack
Anita Pitt Russell sttod out for the win-
ner with 24 in 39.
