Challenge for SMS, Foundation

It won’t be easy sailing for double-crown champions, The St Michael School (SMS), and queens for the past three years, Christ Church Foundation, when the finals of the PowerAde Barbados Secondary Schools Athletics Championships (BSSAC) start on Thursday at the National Stadium.

That was made clear during Wednesday’s 400 metres semi-finals with a number of athletes from ten-time boys’ BSSAC winners, Harrison College (HC), 16-time queens, Springer Memorial, four-time boys champions, Queen’s College (QC), securing berths in their age group finals.

With QC and HC winning the boys titles in the Frank Blackman and Esther Maynard zones, respectively, it appears St Michael will be hard-pressed to win a third straight boys title.

The girls’ race should be a straight battle between last year’s joint winners, St Michael and Foundation, with Springer Memorial alsolooking to wear the crown once again. (EZS)
