NAPSAC’s best to face off
Today is D-Day in primary schools’ track & field with the best of the best-going head to head in the finals of the National Primary Schools’ Athletics Championships (NAPSAC) at the National Stadium.
Last year’s competition saw three-time boys’ champions Bayley’s regain the title, which was held by the St Alban’s Honey Badgers in 2018, while the COB St Giles’ girls did the double.
Though Bayley’s remain, strong competitors, having taken a second straight triumph in the Nation- sponsored Patsy Callender Zone on February 17, this year’s competition also saw the Green Technologies St George Lions boys flexing greater muscles, mainly on track.
Led by the seemingly invincible Ethan Hart, St George, who counted a second straight victory when they secured the Armstrong Agencies James Wedderburn Zone, shattered a number of NAPSAC records etching themselves in the minds of all who saw them perform.
Hart, who now holds records in the 200 and 400 metres, has consistently bettered each clocking with every appearance on track rewriting Jamahl Burke’s 2011 boys 200 and Mario Burke’s 400 boys 2008 record.
