IT WAS JUST a matter of time.
Despite years of heartache, triumphant coach Alwyn Babb said he never worried about getting the monkey off his back, having figured his Burger King Lester Vaughan boys would inevitably win the Barbados Secondary Schools’ Athletics Championship (BSSAC) crown sooner or later.
A rather relaxed Babb expressed the sentiment while helping the Cane Garden lads overcome last year’s second-place finish to take their first inter-school sports title ten years after taking up the helm of the athletics programme.
“For me, sports are about winning and losing, picking your fights, choosing your battles and I came with the Lester Vaughan School and saw so many athletes represent Barbados at the highest level so I was more or less satisfied already,” said the seasoned physical education teacher.
“But after placing in the top five consistently and coming second on several occasions it just meant that at some point we would win the trophy.” (JM)
