VAZ have taken over the lead at the end of day two of the 2014 Jamaica Independent Schools Association (JISA) Serge Island National Primary Boys' and Girls' Track and Field Championships at the National Stadium yesterday.
Today's action begins at 10:30 am with some 44 finals down to be contested. Fifty-five Prep Schools are participating in the championships.
The Jackson Road-based Vaz lead the combined scores with 33 points after six completed finals, followed by Wolmer's 30.50, defending champions Hydel 26.50, Quest 24, Our Lady of the Angels 22.50, Mona 19.50 and Ardenne 17.50 points.
Vaz also lead the girls' category with 22 points, followed by Hydel 15.50, Our Lady of the Angels 14, Quest 13 and Wolmer's with 12.50 points after three finals.
After three finals, Wolmer's lead the boys battle with 18 points, followed by Ardenne 17.50, Mona 11.50, Vaz 11, Hydel 11 and Quest 11.
