Blazing the track
Red House blazed the track to capture the coveted trophy with 389 points today at St George Primary’s Inter-house Sports held at the National Stadium.
They did well to hold off stiff competition from the Green House giants whose 370 points earned them second place. Third spot went to Yellow House with 330 points and Blue House finished fourth with 297 when the curtains came down on the day’s proceedings.
Victor ludorum honours went to the tall Tyrese Crawford of Red House who had a clean sweep of his events including the 100m, 200m and 400m, and anchored his house to victory in the under-13 boys 4x100m relay.
Red House really showed their dominance and there was no surprise that the victrix ludorum also hailed from that house through under-13 division queen JA Quaelah Mounter-Clarke.
Jaquan Pilgrim commanded the under-11 boys division for Yellow House like a runaway train while the under-11 girls category belonged to Rihan Price of Red House.
It seems athletics run in the Clarke family because Marianne Mounter-Clarke, the younger sister of JA Quaelah, was unstoppable in the under-nine girls age group for Red House. While in the under-nine boys Tamarion Lynch of Blue House was the best in that division.
