Still no date on sports meets
Every effort will be made to hold both of the island’s major schools’ athletics meets next term, but they will only be held if the National Stadium is available.
This was the decision coming out of a meeting with the organizers, jointly cheered by Minister of Sports Stephen Lashley and Minister of Education Ronald Jones today at the Constitution Road headquarters of the Ministry of Education.
However, no deadline has been set for the staging of the 2013 Powerade Barbados Secondary Schools’ Athletics Championships (BSSCA) or the Pine Hill National Primary Schools’ Athletics Championships (NAPSAC).
Also present were representatives from the National Sports Council (NSC), the Royal Barbados Police Force and the University of the West Indies (UWI).
A release from the Government Information Service stated that all parties remained committed to the meets being held this year.
