Running in their baby blue outfits, the Kingstown Preparatory crept past their nearest challenger, the Du Bois Government, recording 241 points to Du Bois’ 229.

Prep won the male segment, as that gender of athletes put together 154 points, while Du Bois trumped the female category with 179 points.

Taking the third spot, but by some distance, was the Fitz-Hughes Government, which tallied 157, edging out the 2013 winner – the Layou Government, with 156.

And, completing the top five was the C.W. Prescod Primary with 114 points.

Among the individual awards, Zariel Nelson of the St Mary’s Roman Catholic took the female Under-7 title, as she compiled 18 points. There was a tie for the male title in that age group, as Theron Davis of the Paget Farm Government and Kahj Murray of the Barrouallie Anglican Government both registered 13 points.

The Layou Government’s Jodeisha Samuel (22 points) pouched the female Under-9 title, while Matthew Robinson and Camron Williams were locked on 20 points, thus jointly sharing the male accolade. Robinson represented the Bequia Anglican Primary and Williams – the Kingstown Preparatory.

Jannillea Glasgow of the Park Hill Government, with 26 points, secured the female Under-11 title and Uroy Ryan of the Petersville Primary was the male recipient. Ryan scored 30 points.

And, in the female Under-14, the winner was once again Zarnesha Myle of the Du Bois Government, who repeated her feat accomplished last year, as she outstripped her competitors. Myle recorded 46 points and was also the Victrix Ludorum.

The male Under-14 individual champion was Ziv Haywood of the Kingstown Preparatory School with his 30 points, before he suffered an injury while completing one of his events.

Haywood had the added consolation as he and Uroy Ryan shared the Victor Ludorum title.

The 2014 edition of the Inter-Primary Championships was considered by many as a vastly improved executed and competitive meet over the previous years. (RT)
