Last night Sport PEI held its annual banquet to recognize the achievements of our Island sport community.
This past year has been an especially strong year for our Island athletes, coaches, administrators and volunteers.
We have seen members of our Island sport community shine both nationally and internationally at the amateur, collegiate and professional levels.
In the past year, we have hosted some wonderfully successful sporting events and brought national and international spotlight to our small province.
Last night, we honoured just a few of the many talented individuals who were a part of important moments for our Island sport history.
