Cimboco Academy took top honours for the second straight year at the Clifton Hunter High School annual sports day, held 4 and 6 Feb. at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex.

More than 300 Year 7-11 students competed in various track and field events over the course of the two days. However, the action wasn’t only on the track. Lady Slater Academy earned bragging rights in the cheerleading competition, beating the other academies on points.

“What drives us as physical education teachers is to see our students maximise their potential through sports,” said the school’s PE leader Tashauna Wilmot-Thomas. “The Clifton Hunter High School’s motto, ‘Nothing but the best’, is what we pledged as we organised our sports day events. The results of our efforts were the outstanding performances displayed by our student athletes. We envisioned showcasing the gifted and talented on and off the track through cross country, field events, track events and cheerleading.”

Clifton Hunter High School Principal Richard Wildman added; “Teamwork does make the dream work. “Sports day 2020 was a resounding success and the future of sports is certainly bright for all our students engaging in sporting activities. All staff gave valuable support in cheerleading, marshalling, timekeeping, announcing, patrolling and monitoring. Without their efforts the day would not have been the success it was. Our Academy Sports coordinators did a great job in mobilizing their teams. Our athletes were exceptional in performance and sportsmanship, they were all winners. Clifton Hunter PE under the leadership of Mrs. Wilmot-Thomas, is simply the best at what they do.”
