The St Michael School are the new comeback kings and queens in the Frank Blackman Zone of the Barbados Secondary Schools’ Athletics Championship (BSSAC).

Overnight, the defending BSSAC girls’ queens seemed to be losing their title, trailing Combermere by a combined total of 21.5 points.

The points margin was 17.5 in the girls and four in the boys going into the final day, but when the curtain came down, St Michael’s were double crown winners for the third time in four years at the National Stadium.

The athletes from Martindales Road staged a remarkable fightback to stun Combermere and silence the Waterford, St Michael, fans in their own backyard.

The St Michael girls, led by the experienced Rhea Hoyte, totalled 443 points, while the boys topped the standings with 387 points.

Early front-runners Combermere settled for second with 394.50 points. Springer Memorial came third (312.50), Queen’s College fourth (221) and The Lodge School fifth (162).
