A 56-point performance by victrix ludorum Rynell Weekes led Yellow House to the track and field title at St?Catherine Primary School’s sports day.
Yellow, with a massive total of 680 points, dethroned Red House, who were relegated to last place among the three houses.
Blue (558) took second spot when the St Philip school held its sports at St Catherine Club, Bayfield, recently. Jim Wedderburn, the first Barbadian to win an Olympic medal, performed duties as starter.
Competing in the Under-11 division, Weekes won the 100, 200 and 600 metres. She and teammate Tiara Griffith, who triumphed in the 400 metres but was second in the 100, 200 and 600 metres, dominated every race.
Weekes also won the long jump and cricket ball throw, with Griffith second in the former and third in the latter.
Yellow also boasted the Under-9 and Under-13 Girls’ champions in Gabriella Greenidge (34) and Deryka Grazette (34). Greenidge was first in the 80, 100 and 150 metres while Grazette won the 100 and 200 metres.
Red House still had something to celebrate as Tré Jordan won the Under-11 Boys’ division with 54 points to take the victor ludorum title. He won the 100, 200 and 400 metres, and the long jump and cricket ball throw.
Blue House also had two divisional winners in Under-9 boy Raheem Callender and Under-13 athlete Todd Miller.
Callender won the cricket ball throw and long jump and was second in the 100 and 150 metres. Those races were won by Red House’s promising Khalid “Lightning Feet” Jabarri, who also prevailed in the 80-metre dash.
Miller earned 46 points after winning the 400 and 800 metres, but Omari Skeete was definitely the fastest boy in this division, winning the 100 and 200 metres as well as anchoring Yellow House to victories in the 4×100 and medley relays. (EZS)
