Calabar High’s head coach, Michael Clarke, is promising a high-class performance at home when the school hosts the inaugural McKenley-Wint Invitational Track and Field meet tomorrow.”We are really excited about the meet tomorrow and the guys are upbeat after training on the new synthetic track last Tuesday. They really want to do something special,” said Clarke.Clarke, who has coached three high school teams to top Boys’ Championships, is very confident that with the new track, it will be even harder for any team to wrest the title from them this year.”Training on the school campus is a great plus for the team and the institution as the boys will not have to travel away from school, and also, it has cut down on transportation costs as this money can go somewhere else in the programme,” he said. “It will be a family affair as we expect many past students to be present,” he continued.Calabar is the first local high school to have its own synthetic running track. The opening and dedication of the new track will take place today at a ceremony starting at 1 p.m. Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller will be the main speaker at today’s function.
