Normally at secondary schools the older students tend to dominate the victor ludorum title, but this certainly wasn’t the case Friday.
The day’s proceedings started on time and from as early as 9 a.m. the athletes were ready and willing to go and although only in the Under-14 Division Rashad Worrell was the man to watch from the beginning of the day’s event.
It started for him with the 800m when he easily took charge of the two-lap race ahead of Krishawn Butcher of Worrell House and Josiah Alexander.
Worrell who hails from Adams House showed extreme dominance in his age group also taking the 400m, 200m and the long jump. But the 100m dash was his darling event of the day and he totally outclassed his fellow competitors in a time of 13.24 seconds leaving Butcher and Alexander once against to fight for second place.
While Alexander took charge of the track events his housemate Dimitri Archer dominated in the field winning the Under-17 high jump, shot put, javelin, discus and long jump.
At the lunch break Adams House had a commanding lead of 108 points and even at this stage with relays not ran as yet it was already safe to declare them winners.
And after all six baton races were completed the question was who came second as Adams House were clear champions taking five of the six relays.
Divisional Champions were as follows : Under-13 Boys – Kemar Butler 40 points; Under-14 Boys – Rashad Worrell 58 points; Under-15 Boys – Jadon Pierce 30 points; Under-17 Boys – Dimitri Archer 51 points; Open Juniors – Rashad Phillips 41 points.
