Dalton House emerged champs of Harrison College’s Inter-House Sports at the conclusion of the final track events at the school’s Crumpton Street, St. Michael grounds today.

Dalton started the day with a total of 1095 points, just 68 points clear of their closest rival, Armstrong House. However when the points garnered from the meet’s final sprint events were tallied, Dalton had amassed 1617 points while Armstrong had to settle for the second position with 1518 points.†

It seemed as though that the race for number one was mainly between the above mentioned two houses as Deighton House took the third position some 400 points adrift with a tally of 1105, while Collymore House brought up the rear with 1095 points.†

However, even though Deighton House’s overall tally was not much to write home†about, they had much to shout about with regards to the individual accomplishments of Charrissa Moore, who toppled two records in the morning to add to the long jump record she had set earlier.

She first took down Shari Best’s record of 13.23, set in 2009, with a new time of 13.18. She then removed her own record of 67.31 set in the heat of the 400 metres, with a new time of 65.83 in this morning’s final. It was no surprise when she earned the junior victrix ludorum with a tally of 66 points.

It was also heartening to see that Mario “Super Mario” Burke was still in good form as he removed from the books the two decades-long record of 10.80 in the 100 metres set by Olympic bronze medallist Obadele Thompson, with a new time of 10.70.

Micah Shepherd of Dalton house was the junior victor ludorum with 90 points while Asha Cave was the senior victrix ludorum with 85.5 points. Gerrard Mason of Armstrong House amassed 96 points to seal the senior victor ludorum title.††
