The 2018 Gulf Insurance Interprimary School Championship track and field meet ended in a nail biting tie between Charlestown and Joycelyn Liburd primary schools, both sharing the top spot honours
Wednesday was an exciting day at the newly built multi million dollar MONDO track as eight primary schools in Nevis took part in the Championships.
The event was held under the patronage of Jamal Hamilton and Latoya Jones.
Thousands gathered at the new track at Long Point dressed in their greens, reds, blues, yellows, maroons, oranges, purples and baby blues supporting either St. Thomas, St.James, Violet O’ Jeffers Nicolas, Elizabeth Pemberton, Ivor Walters, Charlestown, Joycelyn Liburd and Maude Cross Preparatory primary school
The races went on into the late evening. After the last event Charlestown Primary began its celebrations not knowing how close the final score was. That shocked the crowd as both Joycelyn Liburd and Charlestown were crowned champions dethroning the two times champions St. Thomas Primary which placed second.
The last time Charlestown won the championship it was also a tie, shared with the St. Thomas Primary School.
