Queen’s College, with victories among the seniors and Under-15s, were overall boys’ champions, while Alleyne gained girls’ glory during yesterday’s North Zone Secondary Schools’ Cross Country Series.
Competing mostly on the Constant circuit on the western terrain of St George Secondary School playing field where the races started and finished, the hosts also had plenty to cheer.
The St George’s Senior girls triumphed through unswerving commitment and determination, while First Form boys Shavari Greenidge-Lewis (7:43.75 minutes) and Mwamba Browne (8:07.28) swept the first two positions in their 2 000 metres race to bring proceedings to a fitting climax.
Alexandra’s Rick Williams started the morning in a blaze of glory when he won the gruelling Senior Boys’ four-kilometre race in 17:04.94 minutes but QC had team glory.
The first five QC boys combined for 58 points, and with the school amassing the lowest tally of points over those positions in each race gaining victory, they prevailed over Alleyne’s 63 and St George’s 73.
