        Most of their best athletes are of that age so yea that can work. 13+ year old kids whipping the other little ones and theyre proud. Getting to choose from a pool of over 400 kids doesnt make it any worst either.

    Unfair for the other schools i think the whole inter-school system need to revamp then we will see a big difference.... in primary school u talking about u13 and 13+ like really?? Stop widening the gap to suit the bigger schools the average age of primary school is 11 so what i think is that they should have a u12 as the highest age group if u pass the age u just cant take part sorry

      Pure F$%kery you talking. The kids are still apart of the school and should never be excluded from taking part in school activities

        So its fair that majority of the schools have their kids top at 11 and some of the others have 14, 15 year olds? I agree with Tola. This needs to end at 11-12. That dude that won victor is too old to be running with the kids. I dont care what you say. And ASPS had kids running out of division.

      How can this be revamped?
      Your gesture makes more sense if you have suggestions to give?

      Believe it or not, most of the kids in the photo are 11 years old; maybe a few who turned 12 recently. My daughter was put to run 13+ and she's just 11, when I asked why, I was told "because we have no one to run in that age group so we bumped them up". So despite some of those children ran out of their age group, they still killed the track. Your comment now is irrelevant, get the facts first.

    They are the biggest school with the most students they are going to win every time because they have more talent than several of the smaller schools put together

        If "numbers" is the issue here, maybe they should add the schools up together. All schooks east of ASPS vs ASPS vs all schools west of ASPS. The odds will still be in their favour.

    A special shout out to JSPS who moved from the B division and placed 3rd in the A. There were lots who expected worse but you stung them where it hurts. Congrats we are stingers to the bone.
