IT WAS A RED LETTER DAY for Valentine’s.

Move over, Yellow.

Led by top athletes Gabrielle Holder and Dwayne Callender, Red House were crowned the new athletics champions at Grantley Prescod Primary when the school held its inter-house sports meet last Friday at the Samuel Jackman Prescod Polytechnic grounds.

The win wasn’t without its nervous moments though, as Yellow held what seemed to be a significant 31-point advantage heading into the lunch break.

At that time Red weren’t even in second, trailing both Yellow and Blue before the onset of the final relays.

And how decisive those events proved to be, as Red captured five of the eight relays, including both Under-13 4×100 metres races, while finishing second in the other three to finish with a meet best 650.5 points.
