Aimeree Thompson led the way for Christ Church Girls’ School with her performances in the Under-13 category. The 11-year-old won both the 200 and 400 metres with times of 30.49 seconds and 1 minute 10:10 seconds, respectively. She also got three points in the long jump.
St Lucy’s Primary School’s Ojahria Mayers blew away the Under-7 division to collect 30 points.
