St Stephen’s won the Boys’ division, as 221 points were enough to see them home. St Christopher Primary placed second with 191, just one point ahead of St Giles Primary.

Aimeree Thompson led the way for Christ Church Girls’ School with her performances in the Under-13 category. The 11-year-old won both the 200 and 400 metres with times of 30.49 seconds and 1 minute 10:10 seconds, respectively. She also got three points in the long jump.

St Lucy’s Primary School’s Ojahria Mayers blew away the Under-7 division to collect 30 points. After winning the 50 metre dash, she also placed first in the standing broad jump and was victorious in the tennis ball throw with a distance of 12.53 metres, a considerable distance ahead of Christ Church Girl’ School’s Sierra Daniel-Kellman, who got 11.76m.

It was in the Under-9 divisions where the speedsters resided.
