The Joneses do it

No one kept up with the Joneses at the 2022 Powerade/Dasani Barbados Secondary Schools Athletics Championships (BSSAC).

Athletes representing the Jennifer and Anthony Jones Zone (JAJ) emerged as double crowned champions yesterday when the two-day track and field meet concluded at the Usain Bolt Sports Complex.

Overnight, the zone appeared to be heading towards a clean sweep of both boys’ and girls’ titles and completed it after scoring 523 and 567.50 points, respectively.

The Peter Vaughan (PV) Zone were the runners’-up in the girls’ section (409), while the Geoffrey Burke (GB) Zone came third with 370 points. Among the boys, GB (383.50) came second and PV (359) third.
