Sports Day from DSG and St Andrew's College
A perfect early summer day seemed to lift the spirits and loosen the muscles during last week’s Sports Day on Lower Field. Although the competition was fierce and athletes tried their utmost for themselves and their Houses, there was a general sense of good sportsmanship and camaraderie in all the events on and around the track.
The DSG and College athletes were on top form and delivered several standout performances on the day. Kelvin Boateng-Aidoo won the much anticipated U19 100m race and achieved Colours for what was probably the most impressive performance of the day. James Quarmby also cleared the Colours height in the U17 High Jump, while Ross Ferguson was awarded Colours for achieving Standard performances in three different events.
Although several records were threatened, the only athlete to set a new record was Jason Thomas in the U14 Pole Vault.
Individual performances are important on Sports Day, but to win the overall competition requires an overall team effort and widespread contributions.
The overall standings were as follows:
Saner Cup: (Interhouse Cup - most points on Sports Day)
Brukman Cup: (Most points in U14 and U15 age groups)
Bevil Rudd Cup: (Most points on Relays Day)
