THERE WAS no Rivaldo Leacock running for Christ Church Foundation yesterday but the favourites to win the boys’ title took the clear 42.5-point lead in the Esther Maynard Zone of the Barbados Secondary Schools Athletic Championships (BSSAC) after the first day of action at the National Stadium yesterday.

Foundation, with Under-15 boy Nathan Crawford-Wallis winning three events, raced to 202.5 points to lead St Leonard’s Boys (160), who had their CARIFTA Games athlete Jaquone Hoyte in their line-up. Combermere (149), Alleyne (143) and Harrison College (129) occupy the next three positions heading into today’s final day.

Crawford-Wallis won the high jump with a clearance of 1.66 metres, the junior boys’ discus with a best effort of 35.43 metres and the junior boys’ 100-metre hurdles in 15.38 seconds. Jean Pierre (11.96) also won the 100 metres in the same age group.

Hoyte, who was allowed to run at BSSAC after he apologised earlier this week for using abusive language to a teacher, scorched the track in 10.74 to win the Under-20 Boys’ 100 metres from Foundation’s Kevin Briggs (10.95).
