Calabar High School last night captured their 23rd lien on the Mortimer Geddes Trophy for the ISSA/GraceKennedy Boys' and Girls' Athletics Championships at the National Stadium to celebrate their 100th anniversary in fine style.
The green and black-clad standard bearers from Red Hills Road amassed 287.5 to beat Kingston College (KC) 265, and dethroned champion Jamaica College (JC) 220.5, with Wolmer's Boys' fourth on 140.
It topped a fine week in which they also won the Schools' Challenge Quiz title for the fifth time for the double triumph referred to as "Quamps".
Calabar, who last won the title four years ago in 2008, are second only to KC's 31 titles and ahead of JC on 21 victories. They finished in style with a wonderful victory in the 4x400m in a creditable 3:10.19.
Moments after capturing yet another event, Bob Marley's Rat Race echoed from the sound system to a loud roar from the Calabar faithful. Only recently, Calabar had to close after being infested by rats.
