THE Trinidad & Tobago Cougars came and conquered for the fourth straight year with their speed, stamina and brilliant baton exchanges at Saturday’s 16th Barbados Relay Fair at the National Stadium.

Despite the sterling efforts of local club Elite Distance Programme (EDP), Cougars raced away with the girls’ title, amassing 113 points.

EDP had to settle for a worthy second place on 80 points, with a resurgent Combermere third on 60. Lodge (38) and Alleyne (30) were fourth and fifth.

Cougars also dominated among the boys, finishing with 103 points to be double crowned champions.

Rising Stars were second with 59 points, with Elite (52) third, followed by Lodge (40) and Alleyne (33.5).

Back-to-back (2016 and 2017) CARIFTA Games Under-18 Boys’ 400 hurdles gold medallist Rasheeme Griffith brought the meet to a thrilling climax on the Harrison College’s (HC) anchor leg in the Under-20 Boys’ 4x400 race.
