Calabar shrugged off 30-time winners Kingston College (KC) to win the 2012 Boys Championships at the National Stadium. In the Girls Championships, it was Edwin-Allen who dethroned 9-consecutive time champions Holmwood convincingly to walk away with the Girls title.
Calabar had the rat scandal along with the pressure of winning on the 100th anniversary of their first lien to overcome. But, according to their coach, they made fun of themselves and remained focused.
Likewise, Edwin Allen had the pressure of being the bridesmaid to Holmwood’s party to overcome even in 2011 when they were slight favorites and this year when they were overwhelming favorites. But they were finally able to do it, projected to win after only 3 days of competition with the final-laden final day still to come, winning by over 100 points.
Congratulations to Calabar High School (CBar or Rabalac) who earlier won the 2012 Schools Challenge Quiz. Also congratulations to Edwin-Allen.
