Primary athletes compete

| 26/03/2009

(CNS): A large crowd of spectators turned out to watch the second staging of the CNB Relays held on Saturday, 21 March, at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex. There was good representation from the government primary schools as they fielded teams of some of their best runners. With the Inter Primary School Sports only days away, coaches and teachers took the opportunity to expose some of their athletes to the competition and also to use it as a tune up for the annual event. Teams from Red Bay Primary, John A. Cumber, Bodden Town, George Town, Prospect, Triple C took to the track and did not disappoint their respective supporters.

According to a release from the CI Athletic Association, Red Bay emerged as the overall Schools champions but the other teams provided intense competition which indicates that there is no clear favourite for this year’s meet.

In the Club section Hy-Tech Tigers was the most outstanding, while Tuesday Running a team from USB took honours in the corporate division.
