Harrison College the best at cross country
CROSS COUNTRY running isn’t for the swift, but for those who endure to the end.
It was also a case of home drums beating first in yesterday’s finals of the Secondary Schools Cross Country Team Championships for hosts Harrison College, whose consistency in each of the three boys’ and girls’ races proved critical in winning the overall title with 526 points.
The Harrisonians won only one of the six races, through their Under-15 boys, but were second in the senior boys’ 4-K and the girls’ first form 1600 metres; third in both the senior girls’ 2-K and boys’ first 1600m and sixth in the Under-15 girls’ 2-K.
Harrison College also topped the boys’ category with 261 points, with Alleyne (328) second and The Lodge School (390) third.
Springer Memorial emerged queens with 218 points overall, while Christ Church Foundation, despite winning two of the three girls’ races, settled for second with 242 points, while Harrison College (265) were third. (EZS)
