Grammar School, Girls’ High School top schools’ athletics meet

In the two-day championships, the Grammar School totalled 176 points, and was followed by the Campden Park Secondary on 142.5, and the Georgetown Secondary, third with 135 points.

The Girls’ High School amassed 150.5 points, the Campden Park Secondary 143, docked in second, and the Barrouallie Secondary 104, third.

The Junior Boys Champion was Jelani Kelly of the Campden Park Secondary. He punched in 25 points. Yurnic Nanton of the Petit Bordel Secondary with 32 points was the Intermediate champion. He also copped the Victor Ludorum title.

Lawrence Arthur of the Georgetown Secondary, with 17 points was the Senior Boys Division top athlete.

Shantel Rouse of the Campden Park Secondary with 23 points captured the Girls’ Junior title. Keisha Ellis of the St. Joseph’s Convent Marriaqua secured the Girls Intermediate Champion trophy, and added the Victrix Ludorum title for good measure.

The Senior Girls champion was Kimberly Garraway of the St. Joseph’s Convent Marriaqua. Garraway recorded 22 points.

The Campden Park Secondary won both the boys and girls junior divisions. The Girls’ High School captured the Intermediate and Senior girls divisions. This was replicated by the St. Vincent Grammar School.

It was a welcome return to the Arnos Vale Playing Field for the schools’ athletics programme, after a year’s absence, as the venue made way for the staging of warm matches ahead of Cricket World Cup last year. (RT)
