McEvedy Shield lunchtime report
The McEvedy Shield is going down to the wire again.
At lunchtime, with three-fifths of the programme completed, defending champions St Pats Town had a narrow and by no means decisive advantage.
As expected it has become a two-school race with Town on 107 points and Wellington College on 98.
St Pasts Silverstream were on 40 and Rongotai 25.
Wellington College had an 11 point advantage after the first round but Town came back strongly in the second round.
The track highlights included a new record in the 3000m Open by Town's Marcus Karamanolis, who recorded 8mins 45.27sec, breaking a record that had been established in 1992.
Wellington College's Renata Mahuika won the Open 100m after finishing second to Town's Alex Hay in the 200m.
Fa'aolataga Tau completed the 100m and 200m double in the Under 16s and his Town teammate Yasheek Rosario completed in the same double in the Under 15 division.
