The Titans track and field club returned to Nevis just after 9.30 am yesterday morning at the Vance Amory Int Airport.
According to President of the club Timothy Caines the team went to Antigua to perform in the annual Sir Reginald Samuels track and field classics. As a matter of fact, it was the third consecutive year that the team has participated in the event and competed against other athletes from Antigua and other islands in the region.
The club members returned colourfully bedecked with the many medals won this time around.
Caines noted that his club members had performed marvellously in winning 16 gold medals; ten silver and 4 bronze. He stopped short of singling out any particular athlete as he noted that all of the athletes had done well, even breaking up to nine records in the process.
Caines was also high in praise for the sponsors who helped to make the trip possible for his 24 member team. He singled out main sponsor A1 Technology, owned and managed by Mackie and Fayola Tross. He was also thankful for the significant contributions of Nevis Multi line services and Island Mouldings.
He also thanked all those persons who supported the fund raisers conducted by the club and those who placed money in the contribution jars strategically placed in several supermarkets.
Some of the parents who travelled with the team were not to be outdone. The Nevis Mothers’ relay team also took gold in the Mothers’ day relay race held as part of the meet. The team comprised of: Vernice ‘Pridee’ Liburd as Head Coach; Icilma Liburd; Hyacinth Forbes; Fayola Tross; Keneisha Daniel and Nadine Caines.
