Following a week of spirited track and field competition Red Bay Primary School leapt, threw and ran its way to victory as the 2010 Inter-Primary School Sports champions.
Just 8.5 points ahead of John A. Cumber Primary, Red Bay's position was sealed after a faulty baton exchange during the meet-culminating 4x100 metre relay.
Fifteen primary and prep schools, including a contingent from Cayman Brac, fielded their best and strongest for Friday's (19 March) grand finale.
Prior to the day's events participants were greeted and encouraged by Sports Minister, the Hon. Mark Scotland; Education Minister, the Hon. Rolston Anglin, JP; Chief Education Officer Shirley Wahler; and Director of Sports Collin Anglin.
Leader of the Opposition, the Hon. Kurt Tibbetts, JP; Bodden Town MLA Anthony Eden, OBE, JP; Education Ministry Deputy Chief Officer Christen Suckoo; and Cayman Islands Athletics Association President Rayal Roberts were also in attendance.
