Springer and Lodge crowned champs
Springer Memorial are still the queens of the Barbados Relay Fair, but new kings were crowned when the event concluded at the National Stadium just after 9 p.m. last night.
Now in its fourth year, the track meet produced one of the closest finishes in recent history with the winners having to be decided in the final events.
In the end, Springer held off a desperate challenge from Christ Church Foundation to finish on 93 points, with their Christ Church rivals not far behind on 90 points.
The St Michael School were a distant third on 46 points, while the Elite Distance Program rounded out the top four with 40 points.
The Lodge School showed that they would be a force to be reckoned with at the upcoming Barbados Secondary Schools Athletic Championships, beating out Combermere and defending champions Lester Vaughan for the top spot among the males.
The boys from St John amassed 75 points – five more than second placed Combermere – while Lester Vaughan were some ways back in third on 55 points and Harrison College fourth with 45 points.
