St Ignatius wins PSA track and field title

St Ignatius Catholic School claimed its first ever Murray-Westerborg Trophy as the overall champions of the Private School Association High School Track & Field Meet at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex on Thursday, 7 December 2017.

The meet featured several athletes from eight private schools in Grand Cayman, including some with ambitions of representing the Cayman Islands at the CARIFTA Games in Bahamas next Easter.

In the end, it came down to a two-way battle for supremacy between Cayman Prep & High School and St Ignatius. Prep took the title in the Big Schools category with 1,373 points, followed by St Ignatius on 1,283 points. Cayman International School (530 pts) and Triple C School (280) rounded out the standings in that category.

However, when the overall standings were tabulated – factoring the size of the competing delegations – it was St Ignatius Catholic School taking the big prize. (see standings below)

St Ignatius student-athletes were in a celebratory mood at the end.

Wesleyan Christian Academy were tops among Small Schools, followed by Montessori By The Sea, Grace Christian Academy, and Hope Academy.

St Ignatius and Prep dominated the champion boy and girl awards for all years, with Cayman Prep’s Jaden Francis being named Victrix Ludorum as the top female athlete at the meet and Dante Baptiste of St Ignatius Catholic School taking the male honours at Victor Ludorum.
