Blue back on top at St George
THE power of Shanice Defreitas and Abbygaile Mayers, along with all-round depth, reestablished Blue House’s grip on the St George Secondary School’s inter-house championships yesterday at the National Stadium.
For most of the day, Blue were locked in a compelling battle with defending champions Purple House before pulling away down the final stretch.
Before the start of the relays, Blue led by just 11 points, a lead that was reduced to seven when Purple took second place (16 points) and Blue, third (12 points) in the sprint relay for Under-13 Girls.
However, the deal was effectively sealed in the next event, when Blue captured the 4×100 metre relay for Under-13 Boys, which earned them 20 points. Purple did not have a team in that race and Blue were able to extend their lead to 27 points.
