It took three long years but better late than never. Green House stripped Blue of their title at the Deacons Inter-house Athletics Championships at the Desmond Haynes Oval yesterday.

And a top-notch performance from the Under-13 girl of Green, Ciara Smith, helped to seal the deal by a 16-point margin of victory.

They claimed the title with 653 points while Blue had to settle for second-place position after gaining 637 points.

Yellow and Red placed third and fourth with 558 and 480 points respectively.

Smith took six gold medals in the Under-13 girls division to capture the victrix ludorum title.

She won the 100, 200, 400, and the 600 metres open race, cricket ball throw and the long jump to collect 60 points.

Although Blue House lost their three-year reign, they claimed the victor ludorum title through Jahbless Spencer.

In the Under-13 Boys category he won the 200, 400, 800 metres open and long jump but took silver in the 100 metres.

Jayden Bowen was the one to outrun Spencer in the 100 metres.

Yellow’s Amarco McDonald also performed well in the Under-9 competition after winning the 80, 100 and 200 metres.

He, however, lost the long jump event to Tyrico Howell-Bailey also of Yellow.

For Red, Ranaco Reid dominated the sprints in the Under-11 age group. He won the 100 and 200 metres but placed second in the long jump event. (RG)
