“Exciting!” “Springer won again”. “A good day”, “I’m happy that Lester
Vaughan won”, were some of the comments spectators made at the end of yesterday’s Barbados Secondary School Athletic Championship (BSSAC) finals at the National Stadium.

The competition ended with the crowning of new boys champions Burger King Lester Vaughan School, while the girls of Scotiabank Springer Memorial Secondary retained their girls champions title for the 12th consecutive year.

Many people, some with small coolers, bags filled with food and cushions to sit on the concrete slabs were at the Waterford, St Michael venue determined not to miss what has become the major event on the track and field calendar.

Unlike Thursday, yesterday the number of spectators – both students and adults – was noticeably higher and there were several parents, relatives and supporters proudly wearing school ties or shirts with the schools’ names on them. (GBM)
