Javorne avoids hat-trick
The Miss Carival contest started 1985 when Donna Young took the title for SVG. Two years later Roxanne Israel became the second Vincentian to take the title.
It took SVG another 15 years to recapture the top spot when Laferne Fraser broke the jinx in 2002. Shivern Peters kept the Vincentian flag flying when she captured the title in 2003.
Hopes were high for a hattrick in 2004, when Javorne Williams stomped to the Miss SVG title.
She, however, did not live up to the billing and was not among the top at the 2004 Miss Carival Pageant.
She was beaten by her Guyanese counterpart Asha Pieters, with Trinidad and Tobagoâs Tanya Gomes second and St. Kitts/Nevisâ Corelle Ferlance third. Thirteen delegates appeared for the show. The others were Antigua and Barbudaâs Terri-Ann Richardson, Barbadosâ Tricia Collymore, Colombiaâs Hisnardy Ramirez, Curacaoâs Danae Daal, Dominicaâs El Hannah Alexis, Domincan Republicâs Adis Heidy Mojica, Grenada Alejandra John, Jamaicaâs Toni Shae James, and Venezuelaâs Diana Carolona Gonsalez.
