Boys’ and Girls’ Champs 2013 Best Ever – 30 record fall as Calabar and Holmwood Triumph

Calabar High School roared loudly on the final day to successfully defend the Mortimor Geddes trophy — symbol of schoolboys' track and field supremacy — when they strolled to an easy victory on yesterday's final day of the 103rd ISSA/GraceKennedy Boys' and Girls' Athletics Championships at the National Stadium. After entering the day in third place, on 110 points, behind Jamaica College (JC) on 115 and Kingston College (KC) on 113, Calabar wasted no time in asserting their dominance on the track, as they gradually pulled away from the pack, piling up points in almost every event on the final day of the five-day championships.Calabar made a mockery of predictions that Champs would be a close affair with less than 10 points separating the top two schools.

Meanwhile, Calabar captured their 23rd lien on the Mortimer Geddes Trophy for Boys to celebrate their 100th anniversary in style. Calabar amassed 287.5 to beat Kingston College (KC) 265 and Jamaica College (JC) 220.5, with Wolmer's Boys' fourth on 140.
