Alleyne School ran away with the fifth Barbados Inter-Alumni Championships title at the National Stadium on Saturday. They amassed 230 points, 69 points more than the Challenor School, with 161, while St Leonard’s Boys’ were a distant third with 84 points.

Alleyne took the overall title as well as the women’s segment with 170 points, while Challenor School claimed the boys’ competition with 121 points.

It was the female posse from Alleyne, represented by athletes such as renowned sports administrator Kathy Harper-Hall, athletics coach Nikkisha Maynard and Sandra Murray, who played a major part in the victory after accounting for most of the points.

Harper-Hall, 81, brought her best shape to the track following last month’s National Senior Games. She won the 80-plus 50 metres dash in 13.53 seconds, 100 in 27.80, 200 in 59.84, and standing broad jump with a leap of 1.32 metres. (RG)
