Lodge, Foundation cross-country stars
THE LODGE SCHOOL’s distance athletes weren’t just fighting back but fighting on yesterday.
The “Griffins” swept the three boys age groups on their Society, St John home circuit in Zone 3 of the Barbados Secondary Schools Cross-Country Championships.
With Christ Church Foundation and The St Michael School favoured after being bolstered by some high-profile new faces at the start of the new school year, the unfancied Lodge runners showed they had the stamina for the longer races.
Lodge, displaying their depth, won the first-formers race outright but shared the senior boys’ glory with Christ Church Foundation after both schools gained 38 points from the places of their top-five runners and the Under-15 Boys’ honours with St Michael, each earning 40 points. (EZS)
