Bonne Terre Primary School captured the 11th Annual Primary School Swim Meet, which took place recently at the Rodney Heights Aquatic Center.
Sponsored by CGM Gallagher Insurance Brokers and Cox & Company Ltd, the meet was also the St Lucia Swimming Associations contribution to the St Lucia Olympic Committee Week of Activities.
Accumulating 378 points, Bonne Terre Preparatory edged out Dame Perlette Louisy Primary with 289 points and Montessori Center was third with 266 points. Bonne Terre has won the title six times in the past seven years.
This year saw over 94 athletes representing nine schools from the north of the island. There were no schools from the south.
The swimmers, supporters, teachers, parents and organizers all contributed to see the meet to its conclusion and allow the primary schools to have a productive meet. The meet officials were extremely pleased with the schools’ participation and keen competition.
Two national Age Group Records were set by Ethan Dyke Elliott who enjoyed the meet after his recent Common Entrance exams. He established a new mark in the male 9-10 50 metre free (30.49), and another in the male 9-10 50 metre fly (32.95).
The winning trophy was presented by Camara Francois, Account Executive Manager at CGM Gallagher Insurance Brokers.
