Back on track
Jaquone Hoyte is back.
The island’s fastest schoolboy was given the go-ahead to compete for St Leonard’s Boys’ on the first day of the new-look Barbados Secondary Schools Athletic Championships at the National Stadium yesterday.
Amidst uncertainty over whether Hoyte would have lined up after he was not allowed to run at the school’s annual sports two weeks ago because of a disciplinary infraction committed last year, Hoyte looked smooth in cruising to victory in his Under-20 boys’ 100 metres heat.
It was one of the highlights the opening session of the championships, which are being contested in a zonal format for the first time because of the limitations on the number of spectators that can be accommodated at the stadium.
