ISSA/GraceKennedy Boys & Girls Athletics Championships 2010 - Results

By now you all know the winners of ‘Champs’ 100, for the boys, Wolmers Boy School and for the girls, Holmwood Technical. Wolmerians, Skilachi, have you stopped celebrating as yet? And why not, the best in 1910 and still the best in 2010,100 years later. The rest of us salute you. On the girls side, Holmwood Technical, eight years consecutively, quite impressive. I suppose Edwin Allen High School winning the Central Championships served as a wake up call.  Anyway the gap in the final points was a lot closer this year so you know you have your work cut out for you for next year.  

 

Everyone wants to win however we can only have one winner, or in this case two winners. The fact is all the participants worked and trained very hard for this event. The standards were very high and the organizers maintained very strict rules. On the first day of Champs, I remember one little miss being disqualified from the relays for a false start. It was obvious that she was totally devastated however she held her head up and walked with what I’m sure was all the dignity that she could muster. Talk about the agony of defeat, we saw it over and over, during the four days. But this is the kind of preparation that will truly set our athletes apart when they get on the international stage. Learning how to deal with the good and the bad; being great sportsmen and women.

 

So, how did your schools fair. Well I had told you my choices, St. Georges for the boys, they came 7th and Manchester High for the girls, and they came 5th. I am well pleased.  I know we have been hearing a lot about the top school so for those of you who haven’t yet seen the full points at the end of the day, here they are.

Sister Mary Margaret

SISTER MARGARET MARY, WHO WORKS FOR A LOCAL HOME HEALTH AGENCY WAS OUT MAKING HER ROUNDS WHEN SHE RAN OUT OF GAS.

AS LUCK WOULD HAVE IT A GAS STATION WAS JUST A BLOCK AWAY.

SHE WALKED TO THE STATION TO BORROW A CAN OF GAS TO START & THEN DRIVE TO THE STATION FOR A FILL UP.

THE ATTENDANT REGRETFULLY TOLD HER THE ONLY GAS CAN HE OWNED HAD BEEN LOANED OUT BUT IF SHE WOULD WAIT, IT WAS SURE TO BE BACK SHORTLY.

SINCE THE NUN ! WAS ON THE WAY TO SEE A PATIENT SHE DECIDED NOT TO WAIT & SHE WALKED BACK TO THE CAR. AFTER LOOKING FOR SOMETHING TO FILL WITH GAS, SHE SPOTTED A BEDPAN SHE WAS TAKING TO THE PATIENT.

ALWAYS RESOURCEFUL, SHE CARRIED IT TO THE STATION & FILLED IT WITH GASOLINE, & CARRIED IT TO HER CAR.

AS SHE WAS POURING THE GAS INTO THE TANK, TWO MEN WERE WATCHING FROM ACROSS THE STREET. ONE OF THEM TURNED TO THE OTHER & SAID, "IF IT STARTS, I'M TURNING CATHOLIC".
