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!

 

 

 

AHS Athletics 2017: Garraway House out throws the Competition

It’s the end of the second week of 2017 and things continue to heat up on the road to The Anglican High School Athletics Championships 2017. Garraway House, despite a slow start to the season, have rallied with dominating performances in the Field Events.

Over the course of the past week, (Jan 9th – 13th) the respective coloured camps of the Anglican High School were entrenched in heated rivalry. Days removed from a rain soaked showing at “Track Heats 2017″each House was looking to make a statement in the Field Events. Bertrand House took and early lead in the Sub Junior shotput and Cricket ball events. Walton House did its best to remain in the competition as well but no performance came close to that of the Blue Battalion who blew away all comers in the Discuss event and remained one point shy of the winners in the cricketball and Javelin events as well.

The table below shows the collective House performances over the past few days of competition.

SHOTPUT 27 21 15 9
CRICKETBALL 14 16 13 12

TOTAL 81 59 44 43

Despite their strong showing, Garraway House still sits at the bottom of the card heading into week 3 and will no doubt be looking to carry that momentum forward.
