Leggard Resigns As CAC Chairperson

Should there be the Inter-Secondary School Games anytime in the future, the Carriacou Athletics Committee (CAC), which has been organizing the games since its revival in about 2009, will have to look for a new president.

This as, due to the recent standoff between Bishop’s College and the Hillsborough Secondary School, Dexter Leggard has decided to excuse himself from the position of Chairperson of the committee.

On Tuesday morning following a four-hour long meeting with both schools, Leggard said that one school seemed to want to push its own rules on the way the games should be governed in 2017.

“I have said to my committee that that’s it for me and I think I have tried my best.

“I remember when the late Jester Emmons came for us to form a committee and revive the games and the schools agreed to participate.

Leggard says that for all these years they were only concerned about ensuring the best for the local athletes.  However, he points out that the recent cancelation of the games has indicated to him that it’s time to move on.

“We have been on board for the last nine years where we brought Union Island on board to enhance the games and for some reason some of us cannot see the big picture.

“This is sad and I think Carriacou stands to lose from the non hosting of the games”, ended Leggard.
