#HEAD coach Corrington Maycock likes the make-up of the 11-member team that will represent the Bahamas at the World Athletics’ 2022 Under-20 Track and Field Championships.
#The Bahamas Association of Athletic Associations made the announcement this week of the team that will compete at the championships in Cali, Colombia from August 1-6.
#“We have a strong team with very disciplined athletes,” Maycock said. “My hopes is that each and every athlete participates for personal records.”
#The team will comprise of Javonya Valcourt, Grand Bahamian Shatalya Dorsett, Paige Archer and Lacarthea Cooper on the girls’ side. The boys’ team will include Antoine Andrews, Zachary Evans, Carlos Brown, Zion Campbell, Keyshawn Strachan, Wanya McCoy and Shamar Bain.
#Maycock, who will travel along with team manager Laketah Charlton, assistant manager Sharon Gardiner, coaches Daron Lightbourne and John Ingraham, therapist Terell Major and doctor Alvery Hanna, said he expects some great things from Team Bahamas.
#“They all competed at a high level all season, now it’s time to execute,” Maycock said. “We also have a chance at placing a solid 4×1 boys’ and girls’ team. I have really high hopes for them this time around.”
#Valcourt and McCoy are currently in Eugene, Oregon, as members of the Bahamas’ team at the World Championships.
#“When the puzzle pieces are all together then we can build a solid and unified team,” Maycock said.
#“I expect personal bests from all of the athletes and some hardware to go with that.”
#The team is scheduled to depart for Cali on Thursday, July 28.
