The defending championships, North Georgetown, District 11, which usually wears the royal colour ‘purple’, will be looking to retain their title at the 51st National Schools’ Cycling, Swimming and Track and Field Championships at the National Stadium, Providence.
The ultimate war for the National Schools’ Cycling, Swimming and Track and Field Championships last year, saw North Georgetown wining the Swimming and Teachers’ competitions, placing fourth in the cycling and third in the track and field to win the overall Schools’ Nationals Championships with a total of 69 points from the four competitions of the Championships.
North Zone challengers, Upper Demerara was second with 66 points after winning the track and field contest, placing second in the cycling and second in the swimming.
North Zone main objective for this year’s Nationals will be to cop the Track and Field and Cycling contest as they continue to reign in the other disciplines after losing it (Track and Field and Cycling) to Linden.
In an invited comment at North Georgetown Multilateral School with the Team Manager of District 11, Mark Wills, Kaieteur Sport was informed that the District will be entering the Championships with a defensive game mood.
According to Wills, his team will be looking to defend their Championship for the third year and will be looking to improve in the Track and Field and the Cycling Championships as they claim this year’s Schools’ Championship “beyond the shadow of a doubt”.
He added that North Zone is all about team effort and with that collectiveness they will retain the Championship as they go out with invited arms to welcome their rivals as they athletic war beings.
The Team Manager concluded by saying that Friday will be a historic day for North Zone when the capture the Track and Field Championship, “This Friday will be a historic day as last Friday was went the Golden Jaguars defeated Trinidad and Tobago at the National Stadium. Once all the athletes contribute we will succeed in the task…we have outstanding athletes such as Jevina Sampson, the Daniels sisters, Juanita Hooper, Marcia Isaacs, Arinze Chance, Devon Abrams, Trevon George to accumulate points for us but we are here as a team and will win as a team, since Track and Field was one of the disciplines we have been losing since I was apart of North and I think that this year will be the year of the change for us….we will not settle for second best to Linden again” he said.
Sampson and Chance will be hunting to capture a sprint triple at the Schools’ Nationals Championships starts today and concludes on Friday evening at the National Stadium.
Isaacs will be seeking to break the female’s Triple and High Jump records as Hooper attempts to register a new record in the female’s Long Jump with the Daniels Sisters cataloging better timings as the stride in their sprint events against their rivals.
