17/03/10:  Charlestown Primary primed for six-peat feat by Curtis Morton
The students at the Charlestown Primary school have absolutely no doubts that this year at the upcoming major Inter Primary schools championships, they will be completing a historic six-peat.  This was clearly stated as they were observed in training at the Ramsbury grounds (MWP). on Monday afternoon.


What is truly amazing is the support that is being extended to the children.  Quite a number of parents were on hand assisting with the drills.  In addition, various athletes were being enhanced in various disciplines from the proper passing of the baton to running in lanes by the Caines brothers of Titans Club fame and Stuart Clayton Williams.

Senior Coach Elquemedo Willet is confident that his team will do the six peat.  He noted that there has been a lot of talk going around ‘but talk is cheap’, he laughed.
When asked about any of the athletes he would like to single out for the big day, Willet noted that he had at least 12 stand out athletes and he feels that that will be the difference on the big day because most schools are only talking about three or four athletes. “You can’t win such an event with three or four athletes’, he stated confidently.
Coach Carol Ward was more cautious. “Everybody knows what they have, so when we get together, we will see what happens; she stated.   She however urged everyone to come out early as she is confident that it will be a very competitive meet.


The athletes then entertained by singing their battle song:  We are the ones to rock the party—first place rock it up…”
