21 Questions with Pietra Gay
« on: November 25, 2010, 07:55:37 AM »
Trinidad and Tobago - Women Basketball

My favourite journey is playing basketball in Italy


Personal highlights Pietra Gay is the first Trinidadian woman to have ever played at the elite Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA) in the USA. To date she has not only played for the Houston Comets in the WNBA Ring but the NCAA Elite 8 and the Louisiana State University Team where she made All American status. A former national captain of the Trinidad and Tobago National Women's Basketball Team, Gay has plied her skills in Italy, Turkey, Greece, Romania, Puerto Rico, and England as a pro basketball player. In addition to steering the T&T Team to a silver medal in the CBC Championships in Puerto Rico in 2008, the San Fernando born athlete has an admirable assortment of accolades- of course her WNBA jersey is her favourite. Currently she still plays basketball for local outfit, Courts Horizon and she is the assistant coach for the national team. Launching out into the coaching realm of the sport has been a new challenging frontier for Gay. Her latest stint locally the Royal Extra Lions Men's Basketball Team. Gay is determined to reap success in basketball whether it be from her own efforts or those of her team.
