Princess Britton helps Walton claim Junior Road Relay

Walton House remains the overall leader heading into the 52nd GTC FM Anglican High School Athletics Championships on the back of a dominant performance in the Junior Division of the Road Relay.

The Green Team, comprised of Trishanna Stephen, Princess Britton, Akeisha Henry and  Kimasha Lewis, led Walton to a victory just 2 minutes shy of the Junior record set last year.

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.

AHS Athletics 2017: Katelann James wins Gold as Betrand House leaps forward!

The penultimate stop on the road to the 2017 AHS Road Relay took the AHS to the National Stadium for the Long Jump; High Jump and Triple Jump Events on Tuesday Jan 17th. The day was rife with competition but by as early as midday it was clear that Bertrand House would be the force to be reckoned with.

Sitting in third position, 49 points behind current leaders, Walton House, Bertrand needed a strong showing. The defending champions proved last year, by coming back from a near 100 point deficit, that when Bertrandites are backed into a corner, they shine and shine they did!

Mickesha Blackman set the pace early in the Preparatory Long Jump and High Jump competition capturing silver for Bertrand House falling a mere 0.2m short of Cassie Charles of Garraway House in the Long Jump.

Aaliyah Bartholomew ties for 3rd in the Long Jump

Following in similar fashion, Bertrand claimed gold in the Junior High Jump in the name of Aaliyah Bartholomew, who has made a name for herself in this event at the InterCol Games. Bartholomew continued to demonstrate her prowess, capturing gold in the Triple Jump and establishing the school record. Despite a solid effort in the Junior Long Jump, Bartholomew managed a third place tie, falling to Rickeisha Edwards and Sophia Mark of Garraway House.

Games captain of Bertrand House rounded out the day’s performance taking silver in the Senior High Jump, falling second to Pigott’s Reba Mitchell.

One final stop remains on the road to the 2017 Championships on Feb 9th, “The Road Relay” an event which can yield a maximum 48points. With the scores relatively close, it’s still anyone’s game. All attention shifts to the Road Relay scheduled for Thursday 19th Jan, a contest that promises all the drama of competition.

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
JAVELIN 14 15 4 11
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.

Akeisha Henry clinched the top position securing 26pts. Along with strong showings from Princess Britton(3rd), Trishana Stephen (4th) and Breanna Bell (6th), the Green Giants claimed 4 out of the top 10 positions in this year’s race. Henry completed her run in 1:17:11 just 5 minutes shy of the record set by fellow Waltonite Shona Edwards (1:11:59) in 2015.

The combined efforts of the Walton Warriors placed them securely ahead of the competition on 222 points followed closely by the ever Patriotic Pigott House on 185 points. Defending Champions Bertrand House (157) and Garraway House (135) brought up the rear.

The annual GTC FM Anglican High School Athletics Meet is carded for Feb 9th at the National Athletics Stadium with 4 more stops along the way. By all indications thus far, Walton House has its eye set on the title and are showing no signs of back down.
