Loregnard is Harvard’s top member
Anthony Loregnard, chairman of the Harvard’s rugby section, was named the club’s Member of the Year.
He was bestowed with the honour at Saturday’s Christmas Dinner and Awards Ceremony held at the Club’s headquarters on Serpentine Road, St Clair, Port-of-Spain.
The announcement from Kabir Hosein, the club’s public relations officer, saw Loregnard rise to thunderous cheers and applause from ruggermen who continued their toast of him with congratulatory hugs.
Not long after, however, these athletes raised the roof with celebratory chants as teammate Aaron Forde, who had already walked the red carpet many times on the night for awards that included Most Disciplined, clinched the Senior Rugby Player of the Year.
Shakeel Dyte kept his teammates energised as he walked away with the Junior Rugby Player of the Year title.
It would be quite a challenge to achieve anything meaningful in life without discipline. That’s a characteristic that embodies Brandon Greenidge. It earned him a place in the spotlight to receive the Most Discipline Rugby Player of the Year in the Under 17 category.
Deon Pierre emerged Cricketer of the Year while Jerome Simpson captured the titles of Reserve Team Cricketer of the Year and Most Outstanding Bowler.
Cricket was voted Sporting Discipline of the Year. Zachary Basanta, captain of the cricket team was basking in the spotlight while accepting this tremendous honour for his teammates at all levels.
Kwylan Jaggassar, captain of the club’s championship hockey team, clinched the Senior Hockey Player of the Year. It was the ideal elevation for her citing that one year before she took home the award for Most Discipline athlete in this field.
Interviewed, Jaggassar, who plays defence, said her progression to Senior Player of the Year was all part of her trajectory.
“The hard works pays off. I’ve been playing since I was nine. It’s the only thing I have been playing. I think what drives me most is: I need to win. Every game I go out to play I want to win,” she said.
While hockey was still in the shadows of disciplines such as swimming and cricket nationally, she took solace in the fact that the hockey fraternity was well knit.
Jaggassar went on to laud the efforts of the T&T Hockey Federation hosting of tournaments throughout the year and ultimately increasing the visibility of the sport which she is convinced will secure its pride of place nationally, too.
