CLSS track athletes making amends

Once again, the students and teachers of the Central Leeward Secondary School (CLSS) have a sporting achievement to shout about.{{more}}

CLSS came up empty-handed in both the Under-16 and Senior Division finals of the schools’ netball competition and also lost the final of the Senior Division of the schools’ final.

But the school’s track team on Saturday ran away with the National Relay Classics title at the main Arnos Vale Playing Field.

It was the CLSS’ second major success in weeks, having taken the female division of the inaugural schools’ cross country run at the Diamond industrial site on December 13.

The run of revival continued on Saturday, when Central Leeward, sporting #2 on their vests, tallied 171 points to take the number one spot, ahead of 2011 winner, Kingstown Preparatory School, with 141 points.

For Central Leeward’s coach Chester Morgan it was a reward for the efforts he put, the enthusiasm shown by the students and support from the school’s principal.

“This achievement can be used as a motivation for the big inter-school athletics competition in March,” Morgan said.

“I hope this is just the beginning for good things … The result belongs to the children, parents and principal for their support,” Morgan said.

Docking in third was the IT-DAT club, which has been around for nine months now.

IT-DAT amassed 131 points, but recorded the most first places — 12.

The ever-present Layou Government School was fourth with 118 points, and Bethel High School — with 103 points — closed up the top five teams.

Thomas Saunders Secondary, Dr J.P. Eustace Memorial, X-Cel, Petersville Primary, St Vincent Grammar School, St Martin’s Secondary, Great Head, X- Ceed, Bishop’s College Kingstown, Combined and the CW Prescod Primary School were the other participating teams, and finished in the standings in that order.

The next TASVG event is the 2012 awards ceremony tomorrow at Frenches House from 3 p.m. (RT)
