Arundel proved their dominance in 100m and 200m sprints with standout Lower Sixth student Rutendo Chimbaru and Sixth former Princess Nwani snatching gold in their U20 events.

The girls from Mt Pleasant capped off the day with dominance in the 4x 100m relays where they came first in the U15 and U20 relays and second in the U17.  Arundel’s senior relay team anchored by Rutendo Chimbaru, clocked 52.80 seconds in the penultimate race of the day (4x100m) with Chisipite coming in 1.32 seconds later.
