Springer nearing 16
SCOTIABANK SPRINGER MEMORIAL have all but added a 16th consecutive girls’ title to their account.
But it’s not so clear-cut among the boys.
It appears as though as many as four schools will be fighting to head the boys’ queue at the Barbados Secondary Schools’ Athletic Championships today.
The defending queens ended Day 4 yesterday with 268 points and can begin celebratory preparations at their Government Hill, St Michael base.
They are followed by The St Michael School on 152, Foundation 115, Lester Vaughan 111, Coleridge & Parry 110 and Harrison College 109.
It is a far different story among the boys, with Foundation leading with 154.50 points, followed closely by Lester Vaughan on 152, St Leonard’s 131, Coleridge & Parry 126, all in the frame for the top prize.
Yesterday Foundation picked up the bulk of their points in the Under-17 Boys’ 400 metres, where they had the winner in Josiah Atkins. Fourteen more points were added to their tally in the Under-17 Boys’ 1500 metres through Rio Williams and Kofi McCollin, who placed second and third, respectively, behind Coleridge & Parry’s record-breaker Jonathan Jones, who clocked 4 minutes, 09.17 seconds, erasing the time of Anthonio Mascoll of 4:15.36 that was set in 2009.
