Fatima College Invitational Development Track Meet 2011

The inaugural Fatima College Invitational Development Track Meet took place on Sunday 20th November, 2011 at the Fatima College grounds. Over 80 athletes from six (6) schools participated at what is expected to be a regular fixture in the secondary schools’ athletic calendar. Budding first and second formers, together with more established high school track athletes from Bishop Anstey High School, Holy Name Convent, St. Joseph’s Convent (POS), Belmont Boys’ Secondary School, St. Anthony’s College, and hosts Fatima College, exhibited their talents on a well-groomed grass track. The weather was perfect for this meet, as the heavy rains of the previous day gave way to brilliant sunshine and a cool breeze. Proceedings began promptly at 10:15 with the 4x100m relays and progressed steadily to the final event, the 4x200m races, at 12:45 in the afternoon. Parents, coaches and athletes commented that the meet was well organized and races were exciting. At least one coach has indicated that they would like to stage a similar meet next term. This can only augur well for Trinidad and Tobago athletics. We look forward to more track meets of this nature soon.
