ST. GEORGE’S, GRENADA, March 30, 2015 –GIS: Organizers of the 50th Intercol games have been receiving glowing accolades for staging what, by all accounts, has been a hugely successful event.
Commentators say the success of the games have put to rest concerns raised in certain quarters after officials shifted the event to a new venue.

Progress Park in St. Andrew was chosen, making it the first time Intercol held outside of St.George’s as the national stadium prepares to host the test match between West Indies and England next month.

Commentators, Godfrey Augustine and Stephenson Worme, wrapped up broadcast on the games saying successe, like Intercol 50, comes when persons cast aside differences and work for the best interest of the country.
“There was so much talk, so much criticism there was so much said and today, all the talk, all the criticism, all the negative comments has been put to rest,” declared Augustine.
“Hats off to the organizers.

They have done a tremendous job and they must be commended for the work they have done and the efforts they have put for making this event a success.”
Worme said he is impressed by what he has been.

“(It is time that we started) Dropping whatever political tendencies that there may be but look at the bigger picture and put Grenada first and all the interest that is attach, to the development of sports,” said Worme.
“It will all go well for the country and I’m quite frankly proud with what I have seen”.

Prime Minister Dr.Keith Mitchell, in a statement released on Friday, heaped praise on the organizers including Sports Minister Emmalin Pierre for a successful meet.
The games were the subject of controversy by some who criticized the decision to move it to Progress Park.

However, Prime Minister Mitchell joined the growing chorus of voices proclaiming the meet as well planned, executed, attended and with a high level of performance.

The Prime Minister singled out sports minister Pierre and her staff at the Ministry of Youth and Sport, the Principals’ Association, Game Officials, Teachers, Commissioner of Police and the RGPF.

Students, parents, and the athletes also came in for special praise for showing their talent during the three day meet.

The games were held at Progress Park in St. Andrew, as preparations continue to host a major cricket match at the National Stadium.
Anglican High School and Grenada Boys secondary retained the girls and boys titles respectively.
