Willoughby,  St Prix smashing in the pool


Share post:

CARIFTA medallists Kimberley Willoughby and Damon St Prix totally dominated the Combermere inter-house swim meet with both victrix and victor ludorum racking up a whopping 90 points and smashing four records each at the Aquatic Centre yesterday.

However, while Willoughby’s domination led Set E to a sixth successive crown with an overall 408 points, St Prix’s stellar effort could only lift Set F to second with 344 points. But, just like the difference between that duo and the other swimmers, Sets E and F ended over 200 points better than the other contenders.

Set F gained 103, Set B, 70, Set D, 56 and Set C, 42. Willoughby topped the 15-and-over girls with records in the 25-metre breaststroke and butterfly and the 50 and 100 metre freestyle races. She ended 31 points better than Chandelle Farnum, with Tyra Lynch placing third with 37 points.

St Prix was even more superior among the 13-14 boys with a 75-point gap on second-placed Ronaldo Barrow. Jonathan Corbin-Blackman placed third in that group with 14 points. St. Prix established new records in the 50 metre freestyle and butterfly, the 25 metre breaststroke and the 100 individual medley.

Only Brandon Thompson and Matthew Warner in the 15-and-over boys were able to grab some attention away from the dynamic duo of Willoughby and St Prix.

Thompson led a Set E clean sweep of the top spots in that division with Thompson scoring 57 points, Warner 56 and Khalil Maxwell 25. (KB)
