Today at the school’s inter-house sports at the Gall Hill, St John playing field, Green House fought their way to the top of the pile in the face of stiff opposition from the other houses.

Green House did not only get home unofficially with 298 points ahead of Blue House’s 290 and Red House’s 282, but they also captured both the victor and victrix ludorum trophies thanks to Jaleah Gibbons in the under-13 girls division and Kaliq Ashby in the under-11 boys age group.

Ashby created a stir among the crowd when he won the 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m open and cricket ball throw to reclaim the victor ludorum trophy. St John seem to have a lot of raw talent and the ten-year-old Ashby told Barbados TODAY even though he does not train expect for running around on a pasture near his St John home, he was happy with his results.

Gibbons, just like Ashby, explained that she does not train at all and her performances came mainly from a lot of determination. She won the 600m open, 400m, 200m, 100m and cricket ball throw. She said she intended to go National Primary Schools Athletics Championship and give of her best for St John Primary.

Up to publication time organizers of the sports meet were unable to provide Barbados TODAY with information pertaining to the other divisions. (ML)

    I’m a bit confused. You tell me Green House triumphed over Blue House and then proceed to publish three pictures of victorious Blue House athletes, and only with Green House athletes – posing for a group shot.

    Where are the pictures of Green House in victorious mode?
