Morgan eyes three peat of male division title with confidence


Head coach of the St Vincent Grammar School track and field team to the 2014 Inter-Secondary Schools’ Championships Rawlson Morgan does not see any reason why the institution shouldn’t reap success again.{{more}}

A confident Morgan told SEARCHLIGHT last Saturday: “Based on the results from the preliminaries and the final listing, and if things are to go the way we predict, we should win the division by some way.”

The St Vincent Grammar School heads up the standings going into this Thursday’s final with 96 points, ahead of the Bethel High School on 80 points, the Thomas Saunders Secondary, 64 points and the West St George Secondary, 49.

Morgan, though, whilst confident of retention, is not getting ahead of himself, noting that on the day which matters most, the other main competitors would be equally eyeing the title.

He anticipates that the main challenges will come from the Bethel High School, the Central Leeward Secondary and the Thomas Saunders Secondary.

“We expect stiff competition from the others, but I am confident that we will win again,” Morgan projected.

Morgan said that he is simply eyeing the title, and not looking for any of the individual accolades.

“It is about a total team effort, that is what is important,” Morgan confirmed.

He recalled that although the Grammar School won the male division titles in 2012 and 2013, no athlete from the school was acclaimed as a divisional champion.

The Grammar School, after being beaten by the Thomas Saunders Secondary in 2011, returned to the summit in 2012 and retained it last year.

In 2013, the Grammar School compiled 275 points, distancing the second placed team – the Central Leeward Secondary (203) – by 72 points. (RT)
