Sam was presented with a Samsung Nano and 100 minutes, compliments title sponsor LIME.

Considered a dynamic, defensive player, Sam began playing netball at the age of 10, while she was a student of the Greiggs Primary School, and enhanced her skills when she attended the North Union Secondary School.

It was at the secondary level that she excelled, making the national under-23 and the St Vincent and the Grenadines team to the annual Windward Islands schools’ games.

After representing Sea Operations Nar Fren Dem in Division Three of the national club tournament, Sam made the switch to Division One outfit Western Union Mitres this year, and immediately sealed the goal keep position, despite the presence of several experienced players.

Sam, in her first year in the top flight of national netball, was adjudged the best defensive senior player and was her team’s most valuable player.

She will have a hectic next couple of weeks, as she heads out to Antigua and Barbuda this Friday with the St Vincent and the Grenadines Under-23 team, as they go in defence of the ECCB/ OECS title.

Sam is expected to play a pivotal role in the netball segment of the Windward Islands schools’ games, which this country will host from July 27 to August 4.(RT)
