The finals of the National Primary Schools Athletics Championships (NAPSAC) took place at the Usain Bolt Complex, UWI from March 8th to 16th, 2016. The young representatives from the 83 primary schools on show again, showcased the vast athletic talent that abounds in the primary schools. A virtual tussle emerged in the female division between arch rivals West Terrace Primary, Bayley's Primary, St. Giles Primary and Roland Edwards Primary with West Terrace Primary emerging at the Champions by a mere six points over Bayley's Primary. The fleet footed Samiya Dell of Sharon Primary and Tia Applewaithe of St. Giles Primary both emerged as joint Victrix Lodourum with an accumulated 30 points from their events.
The Boys division though not as close was however very competitive with the well oiled unit of St. Stephen's Primary emerging as Champions with 121 points followed by Bayley's Primary 2nd on 102 points and Bay Primary with 84. It was a good allround effort however from Bayley's Primary who finished second (2nd) in both divisions. The Victor Loudourum title went to the speedy Joshua Moore of West Terrace Primary with 30 points, while Bay Primary's Amir Gustave gave a good a
count of himself to place second with 28 points.
