The V’s and J’s Preschool was forced to abandon any thoughts of hosting their Sports meet at the usual Hard times grounds due to wet conditions there and inclement weather. Even at the short notice, hundreds of spectators, showed up to witness engage each other on the track at the Villa ground in Charlestown. The meet was held under the patronage of Mr. Roger Fyfield, parent and former champion long distance runner on Nevis. There was just one major disappointment, as the races and their results were constantly affected due to the interference of over enthusiastic parents and other loved ones. At one time the Headmistress threatened to abort the meet if she did not receive adequate cooperation. Fortunately, the meet continued to its scheduled conclusion. The overall results saw: Red-champions with 258 points Green-second with 244 points Gold -third 234 points. The Victor Ludorum was Jacquan Chapman of Green house with 33 points The Victrix Ludorum was Kishawn Smithen of Red house with 33 points.
