Director of Sport at BSAK, Johnny Coombs was quite pleased with the success of the event. He went on to say, “It has evolved into a superb tournament across the three sports and is extremely competitive between schools. It was wonderful to see a number of new schools make the podium this year with some emerging schools picking up some silverware.”
Therefore it was a great effort from each school that participated in the three sporting events.
