Seibert: Penn Relays way to go


Share post:

THE TRIP is well worth it.

Physical education teacher Seibert Straughn believes more Bajan schools should compete at the Penn Relays after watching his Foundation athletes get exposed to both high-level competition and scholarship opportunities to American colleges.

Straughn expressed the sentiment just days after the newly-crowned inter-school sports champs returned from Philadelphia with a couple of credible performances, including a silver medal.

“There was such a massive Caribbean presence there as Jamaica had 36 high schools competing while Bahamas had eight and Trinidad took seven, so I would only encourage Barbadian schools to send their athletes because the meet is at a very high competitive level,” explained Straughn. (JM)
