The hype, anticipation and excitement, said it all.

The action was at the ET Willet Park on Tuesday 28th February, as the Charlestown Secondary School, held its annual Sports day, under the distinguished patronage of former ace sprinter, LaToya Jones.

Scheduled to commence at 1pm, the meet did not get on the way until minutes to 3 pm. However, it was indeed worth the wait as the battle lines were well and truly drawn between some of the established athletes and others who were seeking their day of fame.

Match ups between young Farrell and Ta’J Liburd; young Miss Perkins and Selene or Austin Bart and young Wallace, all received vociferous attention.

The athletes were cheered on, every inch of the way and the cheer leaders and the costumes were also out, with the ETW covered in a kaleidoscope of colours.

Some of the records broken on the day were:

400 meters

Class D-LaMya Pollard –red
