Kellman-Wall won the 100m, 200m 400m, 400m open and came sixth in the long jump. She is the sister of former student of Wilkie Cumberbatch, Indica Kellman-Wall who was last year’s victrix ludorum champion for Payne House.
James put down his football boots today and showed plenty of speed in slamming the field in the 100m, 200m, long jump and cricket ball throw.
In the under-11 division Sealy dismissed all-comers to win the girls’ 100m, 200m, 400m, and 400m open and came seventh in the cricket ball throw to claim the under-11 girls division title. She also played an instrumental role in the girls 4x100m relay stamping her authority on the final leg with a mighty sprint down the track to lead her team to victory. Dessani Waithe, Hashian-Nika Marcelin and Ashley Corbin ran the first, second and third legs respectively.
Reniko Williams of Payne House was the star performer in the under-11 boys’ category with 40 points while winning the 400m open, placing second in the 400m, long jump and cricket ball throw.
The under-nine girls division was a competitive one but in the end it was Ashari Braithwaite of Williams House with 30 points who edged out Suriya Williams of Payne House with 26. Brathwaite won the 150m, 80m and came third in the long jump while her rival won the long jump, second
in the 150m and third in the 80m.
In the boys under-nine division showdown King House had something to cheer about thanks to Jacqari Bobb who won the long jump, 80m, 150m and came second in the 400m open to win that division with 39 points.
