PRIMARY SCHOOLS’ athletics supremacy will be decided today at the Usain Bolt Sports Complex.

Four-time champions Bayley’s and All Saints will have a titanic tussle for boys supremacy, while reigning queens St Giles should continue to rule the finals of the National Primary Schools Athletics Championships (NAPSAC).

Other schools will also hold sway and have significant influence on NAPSAC’s conclusion with the vital points from the weighty relays, but in the end, fewer than ten points may separate All Saints and Bayley’s. 

Bayley’s, from St Philip, will have 17 athletes in nine finals among the boys in addition to quartets in two relays while All Saints, out of St Peter, have 10 athletes who have made the finals in nine events.

But All Saints, with three relay teams, including their formidable Open Medley and Under-13 Boys’ 4×100 quartet,  could accumulate over 40 relay points.

In contrast, Bayley’s have a strong Under-9 Boys’ line-up and could earn close to 50 points from that age group alone with the likes of Shai Thorne, Shakobi Gittens and Mekari Bushell, but West Terrace’s Franklin Durant can spoil their efforts in the sprints.
