Dage Minors and Kyrah Scraders won the KPMG Front Street Mile Senior School Boys and Girls divisions last night.

The pair led their respective races from start to finish with Minors winning his division for the second successive year.

Calling the victory bittersweet, Minors admitted his disappointment of not breaking the current record four minutes, 27.3 seconds, clipping the tape at four minutes, 33 seconds.

“It was a bittersweet race because I was really trying to break the record, but at the three quarter mark there wasn’t anyone with me so it was a bit different,” said the St Johnsbury Academy student.

“Had I had someone to push me my time would have been much faster.

“Being away at school has helped me but again I didn’t have anyone to push me so it is a disappointment in terms of the record not being broken.”

Michaiah Robinson (4:56.65) Jahmari Sutton (4:59.63), both of CedarBridge Academy, finished second and third respectively.

Scraders was equally dominating among the senior girls, crossing the line in five minutes, 22.66 seconds, more than 13 seconds faster than second placed Quaashie Douglas (5:35.14).

Quinnae Outerbridge (5:40.93) rounded out the top three.

“It was a good race. I tried to get out on top early and it worked out fine. I’m happy with the race and the performance I had,” she said.

Aaron Jacobs (5:06.62) won the Middle School Boys category, with Akim Johnson (5:18.2) of Dellwood finishing second and Alex Pilgrim (5:20.62) of Warwick Academy rounding out the podium positions.

In the Middle School Girls division, Saltus' Ashley Irby (5:38.60) was four seconds ahead of fellow Saltus student Lynsey Palmer (5:42.31). Azaria Robinson of Clearwater (5:49.61) placed third.

Ryan Outerbridge (5:40.81) from St David's won the Primary School Boys division, ahead of Z'Dao Dill (5:51.78) from Elliott Primary who finished second and Robert Thomas (5:54.42) of Harrington Sound Primary.

Northlands Primary's Selah Tuzo (6:02.39) won the Primary School Girls, while Destani Waner (6:11.77) of West Pembroke Primary and Holly Bruton (6:14.49) of Warwick Academy finished second and third respectively.
