QUEEN’S COLLEGE (QC) are the new kings while The St Michael School (SMS) continued to wear the girls’ crown in the Sol Frank Blackman Zone of the PowerAde Barbados Secondary Schools Athletics Championships (BSSAC).


The Queen’s College boys, who won four overall BSSAC titles in 2008, 2011, 2012 and 2014, amassed 316.5 points to finish just ahead ofSt Leonard’s Boys (304) when the two-day zone meet ended at the National Stadium yesterday.


SMS, who were zonal and BSSAC boys’ champions for the past two years, had to settle for third position with 296.5 points. Combermere (293.5) and The Lodge School (288) were fourth and fifth.


The SMS girls romped to their fourth straight zonal title with 430.83 points, well clear of Springer Memorial (368.83), who were competing in this zone for the first time. Combermere (295.83), Queen’s College (291) and The Lodge School (160) rounded out the top five.


While the focus was on the track with the QC students in the Jim Wedderburn Stand cheering on the runners, the heavy-set Kevon Hinds flexed his muscles to victories in the Under-17 Boys’ shot put (15.06 metres) and javelin (50.38m).
