Hydel High School was presented with $200,000 towards the school's sports programme, during FLOW's Journey to Champs stop, at the Ferry-based institution on Monday.

The second stop on the Flow Journey to Champs route was well received as the students enjoyed the show provided by the telecommunications and media company.

Corey Bennett, Vice Principal and head coach of the track and field team, said they were thankful for the assistance from FLOW as they continue preparation for the ISSA/GraceKennedy Boys and Girls' Athletics Championships, which will run from March 15-19 at the National Stadium.

"We are very pleased; we would have been doing something special to attract support for three years. Any assistance we get is good. This is the third year that they (FLOW) are coming here and it was a good vibes," Bennett told The Gleaner.

Hydel High finished second behind champions Edwin Allen High in the girls' section last year and they are hopeful of doing better by getting more points.

"I thought we were quite prepared for Champs, but did not perform to expectations at Western Relays last Saturday. We still have some work to do in order to achieve our objective this year at Champs," he disclosed.

Stephen Miller, FLOW's sponsorship manager, said this year's 'Journey' that started at Jamaica College two weeks ago provided a big buzz.

"It is good, Champs fever is in the air, the atmosphere is electric. The students and athletes are eagerly anticipating the big event. We are pleased to continue to contribute to the schools," he added.

The entertainment saw the students having a good time as popular deejay Chi Ching Ching gave a good performance.

Champs title sponsors, GraceKennedy, were also on hand and provided products for the students.

The next stop on the FLOW Journey to Champs route will be at Kingston College this Friday, starting at 1 p.m.
