Xavier Mulugata of Fatima College joins a list of T&T athletes who received athletic scholarships to US universities. Mulugata will begin his studies at Louisiana State University (LSU) in January. He won gold at the 2014 Central American and Caribbean (CAC) Junior Track and Field Championships in Mexico in the boys Under-18 4x100 metres and also bronze in the boys U-20 4x100m at the 2015 Carifta Games in St Kitts and Nevis.

Several other T&T athletes left for US in August including Dawnell Collymore (West Mucurapo Secondary), Ian Thomas (St Anthony’s College) and Kai Ottley (Bishop’s Anstey). Collymore, the 2011 Carifta girls U-20 800m bronze medallist, is at ASA College while Thomas is a student at Coahoma Community College. Ottley began studies at St John’s University.

Meanwhile, former CAC Junior champions Hezekiel Romeo (Diego Martin Sec and St Anthony's College) and Reubin Walters (East Mucurapo Sec) completed their Junior College scholarships at Central Arizona and will move on to the University of Missouri and University of Alabama, respectively.

Former Carifta gold medallist (2013-gold-girls U-17 300m hurdles), Jeminise Parris (St Francois Girls College) will be off to Central Arizona in January.
