NAPSAC Stars shine
INDIVIDUAL STARS stole the spotlight again on semi-final day of the Pine Hill Dairy National Primary Schools Athletic Championships (NAPSAC) but eyes also shifted to the number of qualifiers the top contenders have going into next Wednesday’s final at the National Stadium.
It may seem coincidental that defending girls champions St Stephen’s collected 14 points from the only final contested yesterday in the Open High Jump to top the table.
But how are they shaping in the overall scheme of things next week?
In Zaria Knight and Kiera Payne they have the fastest qualifiers in the Under-13 girls 100 metres with times of 13.35 seconds and 13.60 seconds respectively.

The pair will also be in the 200 metres final. The champs have booked their place in the Under-13 4 x 100 metres relay as well as in the 800 sprint medley.
They have a platform to make a strong defence of their crown. (AT)
