St John’s, Antigua and Barbuda: Regional insurance provider Sagicor was proud to sponsor the Antigua and Barbuda Cycling Federation’s annual Schools Invitational which was hosted on Sunday 13th November 2022 at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium.
The schools on the island were invited to enter their cycling enthusiasts into two races designed to test their speed and stamina.
Overall, eight schools competed: Antigua and Barbuda International Institute of Technology, All Saints Secondary School, Antigua Grammar School, Clare Hall Secondary School, Glanvilles Secondary School, Irene B. Williams Secondary School, Princess Margaret Secondary School and the St. Joseph’s Academy in four categories:
Males 11 – 13, Males 14 – 18, Females 11 – 13 and Females 14 and over.
Each of the four categories competed in the Circuit race as well as the two male categories and a single female category competing in the Last Man Standing.
Marisia James, Assistant Vice President of Sagicor Life’s Eastern Caribbean Operations and Branch Manager for the Antigua Branch said, “Sagicor continues to support activities and events which elevate the youth, particularly in the sporting arena.
Across the Eastern Caribbean, we have provided financial support to events that have allowed our Antigua youth to compete at the regional level, such as the EC Golf Amateur Championships 2022
held in October in St Lucia at which the Antigua team emerged as champions.
We also sponsored the Sagicor Junior International Tennis Tournament which was held in St Lucia in August and saw several young tennis players from Antigua competing.
We expect that this level of commitment will continue into 2023 as we seek to ensure that our youth have ample opportunity to develop their sporting muscles.”
During the prize giving and presentation of medals, each place winner received a small “goodie-bag” comprising items provided by the Association, Sagicor and other sponsors.
