Share post:

LED by the Haddock twins, Ajani and Leilani, and victrix ludorum Tonique Flemming, Red house reclaimed West Terrace’s track and field title after upending defending champs Blue at the Inter-House meet on Fridayat Kensington Oval.
It proved the perfect payback for last year’s heart-breaking result that saw the 2011 champs just miss out on defending their crown when they were pipped at the line by Blue.
But there was no such thrilling finish this time as Red led from pillar to post while tallying a meet-best 592.9 points to beat their rivals (433.8) by almost 160 points.
Yellow finished a distant third on 377.3, edging ahead of Green on 375.
Flemming won the Under-9 Girls’ 100 metres, 150 metres and sack race to go along with a second-place showing in the 80 metres sprint.
Leilani Haddock was similarly dominant in the Under-13 division by winning the 100 and 200 metres and sack race, while brother Ajani was victorious in the 100, 200 and 400 metres.
Blue did find a measure of solace through the efforts of victor ludorum Lyabosa Lyare, who won the Under-9 Boys’ 80 metre, 150 metres and potato race after copping silver in the 100 metres.
West Terrace are the defending champions in both the girls’ and boys’ categories of the National Primary Schools Athletics Championships(JM)?
