More than 200 athletes from Dominica, St Lucia and St Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) are in Grenada for the 10-day CBN/WINLOTTO Windward Islands Secondary School Games.
Together with their Grenadian counterparts, they will compete for supremacy in five different sports – track and field, basketball, netball, football, and volleyball.
Action in the CBN/WINLOTTO Windward Islands Secondary School Games begins Saturday morning from 9am at the Laborie Indoor Court in St Paul’s, Saint George. It’s volleyball featuring all four competing nations; Dominica playing St Lucia and SVG meeting host Grenada at 11 am.
Following the opening volleyball matches, the competition moves to the Kirani James Athletics Stadium for the track and field meet. Grenada has consistently dominated the track and field, winning the title more than any of the other nations. However, from all indications, the contingent of Grenadian athletes is likely to be challenged. Their opponents are catching up with them.
Led by the likes of Junior CARIFTA Games sprinters Ethan Sam, Rickyle Telemarque, Shantay Augustine, Kemisha Dominique, Tyriek Mc Sween, Keelorn Moses and Cheffornia Houston, among others, coaches expect them to relish the competition.
