NACAC Age Group Championships today

News day / Following on from the Juvenile and Junior Championships held earlier this month, NACAC represents the last chance for youngsters to hold the spotlight before next week’s finale in the form of the NGC Sagicor NAATT Senior Open Championships.

NACAC brings to local shores athletes from throughout the western hemisphere. The international event caters for athletes competing in the heptathlon infantile A ages 13-14 category, and the pentathlon infantile B ages 11-12 category. NACAC includes over 20 member nations from Anguilla to USA. Each nation is allowed a maximum of eight athletes.

The host nation is led by Shaniqua Bascombe, fresh off doing the Under-16 sprint double at last weekend’s NGC NAATT Junior Championships.

Bascombe, who is 13 years old, is no stranger to success having regularly been featured in winner’s row throughout her young athletic career for both club (Cougars) and school (Maraval RC).

She will be hoping to add the title of NACAC girls 13-14 heptathlon title to her honours list.

Also representing TT will be Shakeem McCay in the boys equivalent. Primarily a sprinter, McKay will be using those strengths to propel him to success in his age group. Other TT hopefuls include Janae De Gannes, Malika Coutain and Anthony Diaz. Entry to this weekend’s event is free.
