490a0650Junior and Senior students from public high schools throughout The Eleutheras made the annual pilgrimage to the less than manicured field in Rock Sound to battle out with effort for victory in a number of track and field events. Races are done without blocks, shoe-less in some instances and on a bumpy surface. The youngsters give everything they have and they are facilitated by a dedicated team of teachers and assistants who organise the two day affair and record the outcomes for the tallying of points. It all happened on Thursday and Friday, February 9th & 10th, 2017. Preston H. Albury Stallions faced tough competition from Harbour Island and
the North Eleuthera Lions, with Central Eleuthera High School periodically showing its potential and Samuel Guy Pinder All Age having some good individual performances. Overall results placed Preston Albury High in 1st with 1,307 points, North Eleuthera High School in 2nd with 1,236 points, Harbour Island All Age School in 3rd with 1,128 points, Central Eleuthera High School in 4th with 1,006 points, and Samuel Guy Pinder All Age School in 5th with 506 points.   Read more about it in the Volume 10, Issue 2, March 2017, The Eleutheran Newspaper.
