50 Years of Sport PEI Awards – Anna Pendergast-Stammberger
The 2023 Sport PEI awards will be our 50th edition! To celebrate this milestone, we wanted to take a look back at those who have received the Lieutenant Governor’s award as PEI’s top athlete of the year.
Anna Pendergast-Stammberger – 1987 – Basketball
Anna Pendergast-Stammberger won the Lieutenant Governor’s award in 1987 for her accomplishments in the sport of basketball. Anna was a key contributor for Team Canada where they would compete at the World Championships, in Moscow Russia. Team Canada would have a very successful tournament against the World’s top women’s basketball teams. Canada would lose to the Soviet Union by one point in the semi finals before they would eventually capture the bronze medal.
