Cougars defend Barbados Relay Fair titles

Newsday :: 16.02.2017

THE Trinidad and Tobago Cougars athletes successfully defended their title at this year's edition of the Barbados Relay Fair.

And the Cougars smashed an 11-yearold record in the Girls Under-17 1600 metres relay.

The girls crossed the finish line in four minutes 17.10 seconds to erase the previous mark of four minutes 17.39 seconds set by Lodge School in 2006.

Cougars Under-15 girls scored an exciting victory in the 4x100 metres relay.

Foundation runner Leilani Haddock received the baton approximately three metres ahead of Cougars anchor Caliyah Wallace and an upset seemed on the cards.

But Wallace powered into overdrive and reeled in Haddock to the delight of the travelling Cougars party, winning in 50.03 seconds with Haddock trailing in 50.26 seconds.

Cougars also won the 4x100 metres relays in the Under-11, Under-13 and Under- 15 categories for both boys and girls.)
