Warriors conquer Coleridge and Parry again
There seems to be no stopping the Warriors of Set B as they made it four in a row after winning Coleridge and Parry’s inter-house sports on Tuesday. Having won all but two championships since 2006, the Red House Warriors stuck yet another feather in their cap when they won by almost 40 points at the Usain Bolt Sports Complex.
When the dust settled the Warriors had amassed 819 points to lead home the Set A Lions (Yellow) who had 780. Third place went to the Set F Royals (Purple) who finished on 542, while the Cheetahs of Blue House (Set C) took home 487 points. The final two spots went to the Orange Eagles of Set E (450) and the Set D’s Green Falcons (389).
Despite finishing the day head and shoulders above the rest Set B only had two athletes finishing at the top of their respective packs. Abrianne Bend took home 28 points in the Under-20 Girls, winning the 100 metre in 14.28 seconds and 200 metre in 28.64 seconds, and coming second in the 400 metre behind Faithe Armstrong (1:12.03). Mekhi Griffith was the top boy in the Under-17s and he had a perfect haul on the day in the 100, 200 and 400 metre events for 30 points.
The most points on the day in the Under-20 Boys went to R’Mario Maxwell of the Set C Cheetahs. He started his day with a second place in the 100 metre behind Kyle Corbin of Set F who clocked 11.98 seconds, but redeemed himself in the 200 and 400 metre, pushing Corbin down to second and fourth respectively.
Set C’s Reian Burke was the top performer in the Under-17 Girls with wins in the 200 metre (28.60) and the 400 metre where she ran 1:08.69 minutes. In the Under-15 Boys, Keshawn Griffith had the best numbers at the end of the day with 24. The Set F athlete got there by winning the 400 metre in 56.92 seconds, coming second in the 100 metre and third in the 200 metre.
There was a tie in the Under-15 Girls with Ciara Piggot of Set C and Shayla Clarke of Set F both racking up 26 points. The two shared the spoils in the day’s events with Piggot winning Gold in the 100 metre in 13.14 seconds while Clarke came second in 13.53. The order was the same in the 200 metre with Piggot clocking 26.39 seconds ahead of Clarke’s 27.25. However, Clarke was able to flip the script in the 400 where she got in at 1:08.82 minutes, while Piggot had to settle for third behind Jara Lewis of Set B.
Roniko Harding helped the Cheetahs with 30 points after placing in three of his four events on the day. He won the Under-13 Boys 400 metre in 1:07.37 minutes and finished second in the Long Jump and the 200 metre events.
The highest haul of the day came in the Under-13 Girls and Amara Harewood blasted the rest of the field away to amass 38 points at venue. She was almost unstoppable and gave the Eagles points after winning the 100 metre (13.85), the 200 metre (27.95), the 400 metre (1:08.76) and coming second in the Long Jump Deandre Headley (4.15m) with a leap of 4.12 metres.
