AHS Athletics 2017: Early Predictions say Pigott!

We are one day away from the final showcase of athletic talent among the girls of The Anglican High School. Feb 9th 2017 will be remembered as the day when this year’s championship claims were finally decided but some early predictors are saying that Pigott House is clearly walking away with the 2017 title.

By far, the most hisotrically dominant house at the Anglican High School, they have already amassed 23 titles over the 52 years of competition establishing a near decade long reign at the top. In the last 5 years however, they have only captured the championship once. This begs the question, “why are Pigott supporters so confident?”

The answer lies in their position, ahead of tomorrow’s championship showdown. Sitting in 2nd position, albeit, tied with Bertrand House, the Pigott camp is only 32 points away from leaders, Walton House. This is one of the closest, pre-day totals in recent years, made possible by a strong showing at the 2016 Cross Country Run. final-results

Notwithstanding their position, points amassed on Championship Day are what matters and therein lies the source of elation among the Pigott supporters. Their line up boasts some of the best and most experienced athletes at the Anglican High School. The likes of Shaquanda Felix, Christel Mapson, and 2016 Junior Champion Abigail Jeffery all but ensure that the Junior division and the all important relays belong to Pigott House.

Strong contention is expected from Bertrand House, with whom they are currently tied and Garraway House has its fair share of exceptional talent who will also shine. In fact, the Pigott Camp is counting on it! They have enough of a talent pool to keep their name in the mix in almost every event tomorrow and every win Walton doesn’t get, is a step closer to victory for Pigott. No doubt Bertrand House is thinking the same thing but only time will tell.

Tomorrow February 9th promises to be an exceptional showcase. It’s still anybody’s game and we at Ahspire absolutely cannot wait!

Walton claims victory in the Junior Road Relay, 3rd in the Senior

 

Henry, Stephen and Britton had already claimed three of the top 5 positions  in the 2016 Cross Country run despite this being their first year at AHS. Combined with the experience of 3rd year vet, Kimasha Lewis, Walton were expected to excel in today’s event and that they did.

All roads now lead to the National Stadium on February 9th 2017 where this 52 year rivalry will be settled, for now.
