Excelsior landed the first gold medal in the only final on day one of the 35th INSPORTS/Seprod Primary School Athletics Championship at the National Stadium.
Toni-Ann Watson struck gold for the Mountain View Road-based school in the girls cricket ball throw open with a mark of 48.97m. Aliyah McNaughty of Holy Family copped the silver with a distance of 43.83m, while Sasha Harris of St Benedict’s took the bronze with a throw of 42.67m.
So after one final, Excelsior leads the girls standing with nine points, followed by Holy Family (seven), St Benedict’s (six), Clan Carthy (five), St John’s (four), Bybrook (three), New Providence (two) and St Patrick’s (one).
Meantime, defending champions New Providence failed to qualify for the final of the boys Class 2 and Class 3 4×100 relays, while rivals Naggo Head and Greater Portmore are through with the top-three fastest times.
Three finals will be contested on Thursday’s second day: the boys cricket ball throw Open, the girls high jump Open and the boys long jump Open.
