Golden day at Alma Parris
The sun?was out in all its glory on Friday.
And so were the the athletes from Gold House, whose performances enabled them to capture the Alma Parris’ Powerade-sponsored Inter School Sports for the second successive year.
Running at the Speightstown playing field, Gold added to their 2011 triumph, accumulating 520 points, with Blue coming in second on 451 points and Green third (386).
So dominant were they that along with boasting of the victor and victrix ludorum performers, they also copped five of the eight divisional titles which were up for grabs.
Competing in the Under-17 division, King Layne ruled the roost, finishing with 48 points, to claim the coveted victor ludorum title, the same number of points as victrix ludorum, Sharika Shepherd, who was also the queen of the Under-13 girls.
Blue house were responsible for two divisional champions in Under-15 athlete Kadeen Hope (26 points), and Under-20 boy, Jemaine Profit, who finished on 41 points.
Green House’s lone champion came in the form of Keann Griffith, who was crowned the Under-15 girls winner.
In what was arguably the race of the day, Gold’s Rashad Graham pipped teammate Shawn Jack on the line by the slightest of margins, to win the Under-13 boys 100 metres.
