PE, Arundel retain Sprint Challenge titles

HARARE - Prince Edward and Arundel Schools emerged as the victors of the annual PE Sprint Challenge on Wednesday afternoon.

The result saw them retaining the titles they won last year.

The hosts were the toast in the boys' Sprint Challenge category, finishing on 184 points followed by Peterhouse, who had 173 points while Heritage finished last on three points.

In the girls' category, Arundel were in a class of their own, claiming honours with 188 points, 28 points adrift of second-placed Chisipite while Heritage again found themselves down the pecking order in last position on 13 points.

PE sports director, Sebastian Garikai, was naturally elated by the performance of his athletes.

"I'm glad that we managed to win. The athletes showed commitment throughout," Garikai told the Daily News yesterday.

"The competition was very stiff and the event opens up our anticipations this year," added Garikai.

Some of the schools that competed at the event include Churchill, Watershed, Sodbury, Gateway, Mazowe, Girls High, St Georges and Mabelreign Girls.

Participants competed in sprint challenges over 100 metres (m), 200m, 400m, 1 500m and 4x100m relay.

The schools were represented in age groups ranging from Under-15 to Under-20.
