RECORDS tumbled at the St Catherine’s School inter-house athletics meeting held on Friday.

After all the dust had settled from the track and field events, it was St Dominics who claimed the bragging rights for 2017 with 658 points, followed by St Thomas on 596 points and St Martin on 570 points.

Despite finishing in third place, St Martin made themselves heard and were rewarded with the Spirit Trophy for their chanting efforts.
