The Princess Margaret School (PMS) has always been at the forefront when it
comes to innovative sporting events and this time around, the Secondary school
will take it a step further in honoring the past students who would have paved a
way in sports.
On Tuesday morning, the school hosted a press conference to officially unveil this
year’s PMS Sports Meet dubbed Welcome to the Pride Lands on February 14 and
while many will have their eyes fixed on the number of track and field athletes on
display, the day will also see history being made as the school will inaugurate the
PMS Hall of Fame and its first ever class of inductees.
The first distinguished class according to principal Dr. Colin Greene features an
array of past students across various sporting disciplines who have not only left a
rich legacy at the school but on a national, regional and for some, international
Heading that list is one of the four cricketing Knights here in Antigua and Barbuda
Sir Andy Roberts in the field of cricket.
Two-time Olympian, CAC 100m record holder and former Sportsman of the Year,
Cejhae Greene, will also be inducted for track and field.
Also from athletics is former athlete turned coach Ted Daley and National shot-put
record holder and Commonwealth Games finalist, Jess St. John.
Agatha Dublin will be inducted for her contributions to track and field as well as in
netball while Veron Edwards was selected for cricket and football.
Former national female footballer and the 2023 Female Coach of the Year in the
Ministry of Sports Inter-school Football League Devika Tittle and former national
players, Gary Gonsalves and Fernando Abraham will all be inducted.
Anthony Mason is the final inductee of the 2024 class for basketball.

This is just the first class of athletes but each year we will be looking at inducting
even more. We know some may not agree with who is in the first class or may
have some they feel should be added but the true focus is to honor and recognize
those who paved the way for us at the school and to inspire our present athletes to
be well-rounded individuals, Dr, Greene said.
Greene explained that plans are being made to have a specific section of the school
display the hall of famers, a permanent and physical mark so others may come and
learn about the school’s rich history.
The official ceremony will take place at YASCO during the halftime performance
at the PMS Sports Day meet next Wednesday.
The meet will begin at 3pm and will be followed by a No Violence Concert where
several of the country’s top artistes will perform.
Admission is $15 in advance and $20 at the gate.
VIP is $150.
