St Michael trio on target


Share post:


FRESH FROM their historic day-night Glow Sports, The St Michael School continue to set the pace in track and field.

Three of their athletes qualified for Easter’s CARIFTA Games in the Cayman Islands during Saturday’s first day of the Louis Lynch Championships.

Quantum Leap’s Kyle Gale predictably met the Under-20 Boys’ 400 metres standard, while schoolmates Vivica Addison and Vanessa Greaves hit the mark in the Under-17 Girls’ javelin.

It was double delight for the versatile Addison, who is also a Barbados Under-16 netball trialist.

By hurling the spear 42.45 metres, the 15-year-old former Lester Vaughan schoolgirl not only eclipsed the 37-metre CARIFTA requirement but also surpassed the 42-metre benchmark for the Under-18 NACAC Championship.
