Defending champions Green House were out in front at lunch time at the Queen’s College Inter-House Track and Field Championships.
Green took the lead with 707 points, followed by Orange on 639, Yellow (615.5), Purple (611.5), Blue (517) and Red with 439.
With the pasture at Husbands, St James waterlogged for most of last week, some semi-finals had to be done in the early session here at the National Stadium.
However, there was plenty of action in the 400m finals. In the Under-20 division, Crystal Holder of Green was an easy winner of the Under-20 girls’ race, but Blue’s Ken Mason pulled away from Jerome Stuart of Blue House in the final metres after they matched strides in the straightaway.
Dario Scantlebury and his Purple House teammate Kevin McCaskie also had a close finish, with Scantlebury nipping McCaskie on the line.
The exciting 100and 200 metres are still to come, with a highly anticipated clash between Mason and Purple’s Raphael Jordan.
