Green the queens at last
GREEN ARE BRIDESMAIDS no more.
The perennial runners-up have got over the hump, having barely held off Blue House to finally win Hindsbury’s inter-house sports meet at Queen’s Park on Friday.
Led by victrix ludorum favourite Carris Boyce, Green finished the day with 400 points to edge rivals Blue (392) by just eight points. Gold House were third with 351 points while last year’s champions Red amassed only 335 to finish fourth.
The meet actually came down to the last race – the medley relay – as Green overtook Blue towards the end of the day before holding a slim six-point lead heading into their third-place tug-of-war battle with Blue.
But Green lost that showdown, giving Blue a chance to win the sports with a victory in that relay. (JM)
