To the chants of Kolij, Kolij, Harrison College boys joined Christ Church Foundation girls in sharing the Sol Esther Maynard Zone track and field glory yesterday at the National Stadium.

Harrison College denied Christ Church Foundation a second straight double crown in the zone by narrowly capturing the boys’ title by an eight-point margin.

But Foundation’s capture of a third consecutive girls’ zonal title in the PowerAde Barbados Secondary Schools Athletics Championships (BSSAC) was by a massive 203 points as they amassed 468.50 to HC’s 265.50.

The boys’ battle came down to the final event – the 4×400 relay – with HC leading Foundation by ten points.

Foundation’s quartet of Shane Thorne, Jade Yearwood, Raheim Taitt-Best and Dalano Wickham emphatically won in a zone record 3:15.54 minutes.

But Harrison College (3:19.39) ensured the boys’ title would be theirs by finishing second as Rasheeme Griffith chased fellow CARIFTA Games’ 400 hurdles qualifier Wickham, who had a 15-metre lead, in vain on the anchor leg.
