It was the Blue House show at the 20th annual St Stephen’s Primary School sports at the school ground, Black Rock, last Friday.

Blue House set the pace and did not look back as they amassed 862 points. After settling for second place last year, they came back this year to upset defending champions Yellow, who came third with 762. Red were second with 769 and Green fourth on 724 points.

The rivalry between Blue’s Achilles Browne in the Under-9 boys’ division, and Red’s Rashawn Rogers in the Under-13 boys’ for the victor ludorum crown was evident. They battled their competitors fiercely in their respective divisions to finish on the same number of points.

The Under-13 girls’ queen, Shanice Broomes, had her name written all over the victrix ludorum trophy as she slammed all opposition in the 100, 200, 400 and 600 metres. She also won the long jump.

Browne had stiff competition from Tyshae Headley of Yellow in the Under-9 boys division where they tied as divisional champions. Browne won the 80, 100 and long jump while placing second in the 150 metres. Headley placed second in 80, 100 and long jump and was third third in the 150 metres.

In the Under-11 girls’, Green’s Zaria Knight was the star, winning the 100, 200 and 400 along with the long jump while in the same age group for boys, Romario Maxwell of Yellow stood out after winning the 100 and 400 and placing second in the 200 metres.

In the Under-9 girls’, Christal Griffith had no challenge as she won her division by winning the 100 metres and placing second in the 80-metre dash. (ML)
