Big day for athletes


Share post:

The 2011 Powerade Barbados Secondary Schools’ Athletic Championships are not for the faint of heart.
And with everything to gain, tomorrow’s conclusion at the National Stadium could be one for the ages, especially among the boys.
Queen’s College surged to the lead with 159 points, with Ellerslie School second on 138 and defending champions Harrison College just four adrift of them. St Leonard’s Boys’ and The Lester Vaughan School rounded out the top five with 126 and 118 points, respectively.
Springer Memorial are running away with the girls’ title enjoying an 89.5-point lead over Queen’s College that won’t be overturned tomorrow, with 237.5 points.
The St Michael School are challenging for second place with 136 points, 12 fewer than Queen’s College. Harrison College are third with 107.5 and Parkinson Memorial have 93.
Even with the drums silenced, the athletes turned in some more magnificent performances, as eight more records were broken.
Lester Vaughan’s Shamar Rock became the first victor ludorum of 2011, winning the Under-17 boys’ triple jump to add to the long jump, high jump and javelin.
