Yellow stings at Springer
The Stinging Bees (Yellow) left their hive at Government Hill to do damage while retaining their title yesterday at Springer Memorial’s Inter-House Athletic Championships at the National Stadium.
It was clear that after their rare defeat in 2016, they were now back to their winning ways when they left their indelible mark while dismissing their rivals by a wide 173.17-point margin for the third successive year.
They seized the title with 610.50 points and were followed by the Purple Titans with 437.33, Red Phoenix with 412.83, the Green Tigers 399.50 and the Blue Blazers with 376.83.
Queen bee Tricia Phillips of Division 1 led the charge when she seized the victrix ludorum title with 70 points.
The legs on the 20-year-old multi-sport athlete were difficult to fathom when she erased former 400-metre athlete Ashanna Hodge’s record of one minute 0.29 seconds back in 2012 to clock 58.96 seconds.
