Tobago Educational district had to settle for second again behind Port Spain at the annual Atlantic National Primary Schools Track and Field Championships at the Hasely Crawford Stadium in Mucurapo on Wednesday May 21. 

The Tobagonians were hoping to upset the 38-time champion after doing so in 2008 and 2009 but came up short as Port of Spain won with 423.80 points.

Tobago Educational tallied 343 points for second place.

Leading the charge for Tobago was Janae De Gannes,.

De Gannes retained her Girls’ Under 19 60m and 100m crowns and improved to silver from bronze in the long jump.

De Gannes, the sister of top junior table tennis player Jasher, took the 60m in 9.25 seconds from Janika Jordan (Port Spain) 9.28 and Sierra Joseph (Victoria) 9.35 and then the 100m in 15.08 again denying Jordan (15.11) and Joseph (15.24).

De Gannes was going for a third gold in the long jump but was beaten into second (2.90m) by Nishia Alexander of South East (3.06m).

She  missed another medal in the Girls Under 9 4x100m as her Tobago team was disqualified.  De Gannes was named the top Under 9 girl of the meet earning 28 points.

Kevon Mc Kenna was also a double champion for Tobago winning the Boys’  Under  11 100m and 300m. 

Mc Kenna took the top Boys’ Under 11 award with 20 points.

Justin Guy retained the Boys’ Under 13 high jump crown with a leap of 1.50m.  

Kegel Chance then took the Boys’ Under 13 high jump with a distance of 4.93m.
