Lester Vaughan break through
ATHLETICS kings at last!
Burger King Lester Vaughan are the new boys’ champions of the PowerAde Barbados Secondary Schools Athletic Championships (BSSAC) and Scotiabank Springer Memorial are the girls’ queens for the 12th consecutive year and 16th time overall.
Watched by their greatest athlete, Ambassador Ryan Brathwaite, Barbados’ newest secondary school captured their maiden boys’ title with 276.50 points at the National Stadium yesterday, while Springer were runaway winners on 391 points.
Whereas Springer’s success was never in doubt, the Cane Garden, St Thomas school, which was only founded in 1997, didn’t slip up like last year when they were second to dethroned champions Queen’s College and prevailed by 38 points.
Their success was achieved without the services of the injured Michael Nicholls on the final day of the five-day championships. (EZS)
