Lions sprint out of the blocks
EDEN LODGE PRIMARY were the first out of the blocks when this year’s National Primary Schools’ Athletic Championships started yesterday at the National Stadium.
But despite the late start, it was a replay of last year’s meet when the Gold House Lions, with 459 points, retained their title for the 11th consecutive year, easing into the top spot ahead of Red House Scorpions on 453.
At the penultimate track event, students and teachers were on their feet at the edge of the track, as both houses, who have battled for first and second place over the last few years, were tied for the top position.
Gold produced four sprint kings and queens in Aliyah Richards, Zaki Clarke, Janiah Smith and Tirique Collymore, while Orange Lemurs, who finished with 310 points, produced a sprint king and queen in Shanira Reid and Jayden Greene, as well as emerged victorious in the boys 4 x 100 metres open relay.
