The St Michael School and four-time defending champions Queen’s College hold the early leads at the 2011 Barbados Relay Fair here at the National Stadium.
St Michael lead the girls with 30 points, with Queen’s College and defending champions Springer Memorial tied for second on 24 points.
Boys’ champions Queen’s College are out front with 30 points, The Lodge School are second with 27 and St Leonard’s Boys’ are five points adrift.
Queen’s College boys and girls set new records in the Under-13 sprint events. The girls were timed at 2 minutes 36.77 seconds, erasing the 2:43.63 set by Springer Memorial last year. The boys’ team clocked 2:28.57, lowering the 2:32.26 by The Lodge School.
The action was hot on the track as schools begin to get their relay combinations together.
Ellerslie’s Under-20 boys was in fine form as usual, with Charles Greaves, Raheem Durant, Nicholas Deshong and Anthonio Mascoll putting on quite a show in the boys’ 1600m (200x200x400x800m) relay.
The primary schools were not to be left out, with West Terrace, Eden Lodge, Cuthbert Moore and Westbury the most impressive so far.
