Schools set for relay classic


CedarBridge Academy, TN Tatem Middle School and Harrington Sound Primary School will put their respective titles on the line during the annual Bermuda Pacers Track Club School’s Relay Classic at the National Stadium today.

Cedarbridge are the high school champions but are facing stiff competition from Saltus Grammar School, whose team includes Nirobi Smith-Mills, who won the gold medal in the under-17 boys’ 800 metres at the Carifta Games in Cayman Island last month.

Saltus laid down a marker after winning their maiden Bermuda School Sports Federation senior school athletics title in recent memory in March.

TN Tatem and Harrington Sound are the middle and primary school champions.

“It should be interesting because Saltus won the High School Sports this year and Dellwood won the Middle School Sports,” Cal Simons, the meet director and Pacers Track Club coach, said.

“Dellwood should have a very strong team and Sandys Middle School also has a very good team.”

Smith-Mills is among several athletes who represented Bermuda at the Carifta Games that will showcase their talents during the AIG 100 sponsored event, featuring 300 participants across 25 public and private schools.

Schools will also compete for a share of $4,000 in prize money to go towards their athletic programmes.

The event starts at 5.30pm with the highlight being the 4x100 finals featuring Saltus’ Za’Kayza Parsons and CedarBridge Academy’s Keturah Bulford-Trott, who were members of Bermuda’s under-17 relay team that won bronze at Carifta.

In addition to these athletes, spectators will have an opportunity to witness the Special Olympic athletes compete in the same event.
