June 2017

The UWI Games is a biennial UWI tradition which is staged at a different campus each time. For the 2017 edition, nearly 500 athletes from across the Caribbean took part in the 10 sporting disciplines featured: basketball, football, tennis, swimming, table tennis, track and field, volleyball, cricket, netball, and 6-a-side hockey. Competition in all sports involved both male and female participants except for cricket and netball, which were male only and female only respectively. The St. Augustine team came away overall winners in cricket, swimming and table tennis. Syriah David was one of the stars of the triumphant swim team.
