News day / Augustus was given the nod ahead of footballer Benedict Barrett, hockey player Dominic Young and squash player John Holley while Knaggs defeated the challenges of Jovan Marshall (football), Jordan Reynos (hockey) and Tion Webster (cricket). Augustus, a former West Indies youth team batsman, had a fruitful 2013 season, having topped the averages in the Sunday League with 110.66, from 332 runs, in seven innings while, in the Premier League, he tallied 436 runs (the second highest aggregate) with an average of 31.1 and a high score of 103.
Knaggs, who is currently enrolled at the Wycliffe College in England, won the girls Under-19 category at the Caribbean Junior Squash Championships here in Trinidad in July.
The Club also honoured three of its members who were recipients of National Awards this year Chief Justice Ivor Archie (law), who got the Order of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago; David Toby (medicine) who got a Chaconia Medal Silver; and George Janoura (business) who got a Humming Bird Medal Gold.
