Winners in Zone 5 sports
Christ Church Girls led from start to finish, but the boys from Charles F. Broome mounted a late and sustained challenge to take the top prizes in the Patsy Callender Zone 5 of the Pine Hill National Primary Schools’ Athletic Championships (NAPSAC).
Christ Church returned to the top of primary schools’ track and field with 173 points, holding off overall defending girls’ champions Bayleys who were second with 162.5 points. West Terrace were third on 135 points, with a gap separating them from zone champions Charles F. Broome (117.5) and Wilkie Cumberbatch (107.5).
Charles F. Broome didn’t look as strong as in the past, but they made their run late in the afternoon and never eased up the pressure. They finished with 152 points, 23 more than Bayleys. Eden Lodge were third with 114.5, defending zone champions West Terrace fourth with 108 and Milton Lynch fifth with 102.5.
St Stephen’s, the NAPSAC boys’ champions, were 11th with 43 points.
