SECONDARY SCHOOLS' SPORTS. SUCCESS OF CHRISTIAN BROTHERS' COLLEGE. IN CHAMPIONSHIP EVENTS. NEW RECORDS ESTABLISHED. The lar e number of people who gathered at the Association Cricket Ground yesterday alternoon to witness the sixth annual ath letic championship meeting in connection with the secondary public schools derived a very real pleasure from the day's proceed ing:. The weather. although dull, did not interfere with the attendance, and the snorts wero carried out in a manner which reflect. ed distinct credit on the Secondary Public Schools' Spo-ts Association and on the large staff of oficials, including the hen. secre lary (Mr. J. L. O'Sullivan). Each succeed ing year increased interest is evinced in the sports. and the treeting yesterday can with out qualification easily be regarded as the most successful on record. The entries were large, and the events were all well contested and in a commendable spirit of friendly rivalry His Exceltency the Governor (who afterwards presented the prizes). Ladv Ede line Strickland, and Miss Strickiand, accom panied by Capt. lKer-Pearse, were in terested spectators for the greater portion of the afternoon. With the honour of their schools to up hold. and with handsome prizes awaiting those successful, the competitors fought out keenly the racing and other events. Cham pionship honours went to the Christian Brothers' Collego. Scotch College being next. Christian Brothers' College were also represented by the most successful ath leto in Cummings, who, it may be stated in passing, is a prominent League foot .aller. The Eame College was successful last year, add on that occasion also Savage. one of its representatites. proved the cha:n pion athlete. The next best champion yesterday was Richardson. of Scotch Col lege. The only occurrence to mar in any way the enjoyment of those present was an unfortunate accident in the High Jump, under 16. Wilkerson. one of the last of the three competitors to remain in, fell heavily on his wrist. It was afterwards found that he had broken it. First-aid appliances were quickly brought on the scene, and Wilkerson was shortly afterwards conveyed to his home. Several new records (indicated below) were established during the after noon. while in other events the time was equal to records already held. Of the younger competitors, Gonzales stood out as an athlete of fine promise. The Mile Open Race-the final event-was won on the tape by Richardson, of Scotch College, after a magnificent finish with Yelverton, of the same school. At the close of the afternoon His Excel lency the Governor presented the trophies to the successful competitors, and at the instance of Mr. Faulkner. headmaster of the High School. three lusty cheers were afterwards given for His Excellency and Lady Edelino Strickland.
