The Charles E. Mills Secondary school, cemented its dominance of the annual Inter High Schools athletic championship, over the period, Friday 23rd to Sunday 25th March.
The event was held at the prestigious Kim Collins stadium and featured the top athletes, from 11 secondary schools within the federation of St. Kitts and Nevis and another team that was unattached.
The event climaxed on Sunday 25th March with the finals of the 100 meters races and these certainly created much excitement for the packed stadium, which contained quite a number of Nevisians.
One of those races, featured Marcus Dubberry, formerly of the Charlestown Secondary School, but who showed up in CFBC colours on the day, versus the popular Demetri of the CEMS.
As Marcus exploded out of the starter’s block, so too did Demetri and then major disappointment for his fan base, as he pulled up suddenly, like an engine that had suddenly conked out, while Marcus raced toward the finish line, like a turbo, much to the delight of the Nevisian fan base.
Here are the overall results in terms of the placements of the teams:
Charles E. Mills 27 gold 16 silver 19 bronze-62 medals-champions
