Castries, St. Lucia: St. Lucia has announced its biggest team ever to take part in this month`s XX Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland.

Levern Spencer, the 2010 women`s high jump bronze medallist, will lead a 32-member St. Lucia outfit which also includes the national netball team - signaling this country`s first Commonwealth Games participation in a team sport, reports CMC.

Chef de Mission Teddy Matthews says St.Lucia team will compete in athletics, boxing, netball, shooting, swimming and table tennis.
