Laborde are the track and field kings of The Lodge School again.
The boys and girls in red kept their impressive tradition alive earlier today at the school grounds in Massiah Street, St. John, winning the institution’s annual track and field championships for the second year running.
Laborde finished the day on 699 points,  ahead of Emptage House (White) on 640, Wedderburn (Blue) third on 566, Codrington (Yellow) fourth with 499.5 points, and Gooding House (Green) taking up the rear on 278.5 points.
A number of athletes made clean sweeps of their respective Divisions. Rolanda Shepherd, Amanda Griffith, Thristian Deane, Akeem mcCollin and Shem Forde each won their 100, 200 and 400 metres events.
 In keeping with recent tradition, today’s meet was held in honour of another of its highly successful old scholars, businessman Ralph “Bizzy” Williams.
Williams accompanied by his wife Shelly, spent a considerable part of the day sitting in front of the same class room where he sat in 1954 as a student, taking in some of the day’s exciting action.  During a short  recess, Williams said he was pleasantly surprised at the honour which was bestowed upon him by the school’s executives, and thoroughly enjoyed relaxing and enjoying the proceedings. “Last year it was my brother Sir Charles. We are both happy to have been students of this historic institution,”  Williams told
