Youngsters will do battle in the Schools Relay Classic at the National Sports Centre tomorrow night, with the teams reaching the 4x100 metres finals and getting the chance to compete in the Bermuda Invitational Permit Meet next week.

TN Tatem, the seven-times champions, will look to defend their middle school title, along with Harrington Sound, the primary school winners in 2017 and senior school CedarBridge Academy. Races will be held in the 4x100 and 4x400, involving more than 300 athletes from 13 primary schools, six middle and three senior schools.

Races start at 5.30pm with the primary school girls and boys semi-finals in the 4x100, followed by the middle school girls and boys heats at 6pm.

The top two teams in each heat and the next six fastest times qualify for the finals. The final races will be at 8.40 and 8.50, with the high school girls and boys finals.

Bermuda Pacers Track Club have teamed up with AIG as the lead sponsor for the second year to host event. Teams will not only battle for bragging rights, but also for $4,000 in financial awards. These funds will go directly to the winning schools’ athletic programmes.
