EVERYTHING IN LIFE can’t be a competition. Others win sometimes.

That was a grudging confession from broken-hearted Oneal athletes and supporters as their eight-year reign came to a crushing end at Alexandra School’s annual inter-house track and field championships yesterday.

Yesterday, at the National Stadium, the bragging rights belonged to Frederick House, who ended 15 years of famine and snatched the title Oneal thought they owned.

Truthfully, Frederick threw down the gauntlet to the former champions even before the start of yesterday’s finals.

They came in with 544 points, 140 more than Oneal, who had amassed 404. Physical education teacher Renaldo Parris said Frederick laid their foundation for success by taking most of the field events, which were done at school.

The final count was: Frederick 916, Oneal 780, Skinner 772, Arnold 675, and Lysons 554.
