HC looking to build on win


Share post:

The Kolij Lions of Harrison College are hoping to build on the momentum gained from capturing this year’s boys’ title of the Barbados Secondary Schools Athletics Championships (BSSAC).

So says principal Juanita Wade, who experienced her first victory at the athletic meet since coming to the school five years ago.

She told the THE NATION: “We have made it, but it’s only a question now of keeping up the momentum and doing as well as we can as we go forward. I have been here for five years and it has really been my dream, because I am well aware that we have had a long record of winning at the BSSAC level and when it was the Inter-School Sports version.

“Over the last five years I have been trying my best to work with the physical education department to see how I can help to strengthen what they are doing, influence the students and do what else I could to bring us to this point, so this is the culmination of those five years of effort here,” Wade said during an athletes celebration at the school.
