Blue best at Broome
Blue House reigned supreme for the third successive year at Charles F Broome Primary School’s sports day at the LIME Sports Club on Friday.
Riding on a big team effort, Blue emerged narrow winners over Red House despite not producing any of the eight divisional champions.
In a highly competitive meet, Blue finished with 863 points, Red 845.5 and third-placed Green 834. Gold were a distant fourth with 711.5 points.
While Gold ended bottom of the table, they boasted of three divisional winners, including victrix ludorum Destiny Harding.
Harding, a multiple-winner at the Inter-Schools swimming championships late last year, accumulated 55 points after winning four events – 100 metres, 200m, long jump, high jump – and placing second in the 600m in the Under-13 division.
The victor ludorum was Green’s Justin Millington, whose 59 points came courtesy of wins in the 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m and a second place in the 800m among the Under-11s.
Charles F Broome placed second in the girls’ section and third in the boys’ at last year’s National Primary Schools Athletics Championships. (HG)
