PARAQUITA BAY, Tortola, VI– The 25th Anniversary Special Edition Mourant HLSCC College Classics concluded on Saturday, November 14, 2020, with the Elite Relay Exchange at the H. Lavity Stoutt Community College (HLSCC), Paraquita Bay campus.

Race Director, Mrs Stephanie Russ-Penn explained that the relay event was birthed out of aiming to organise an extra special event for the 25th Anniversary celebrations in the midst of the constraints due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mrs Russ-Penn said, “It was the prefect finish to the 2020 College Classic Race Series and the relays will definitely be considered for future series.”

The HLSCC Department of Student Life and Special Events expresses extreme appreciation to their main sponsor Mourant, all their volunteers, the HLSCC family, Dean H.
