National A Div Basketball Final (Boys): NJC secure historic first title after surviving late HCI fightback

National Junior College (NJC) turned around an early Hwa Chong Institution (HCI) lead and survived a late onslaught from their opponents to bag their maiden A Division boys' basketball title, in only the school's second appearance in a championship final. Led by captain and Most Valuable Player (MVP) Ray Chan (#8) with a game-high 12 points, the boys in white came out 41-33 winners against their counterparts in red to protect their 100-percent record over seven games in the competition.

NSG Track & Field: Singapore Sports School reign supreme in B Div relays

When Singapore Sports School (SSP)’s Huang Weijun received the baton on the anchor in the B Division boys’ 4 by 400 metres relay final, he knew a massive winning streak was on the line for his school in the event. The B boys’ 100m-200m sprint king was up against Victoria School (VS)’s 800m champion and 400m silver medalist Subaraghav Hari who got the baton slightly earlier, and he understood the assignment. Weijun took advantage of his speed to overtake the latter within the first bend, and never relented as he brought the gold home for SSP in 3 minutes 31.47 seconds, a marginal 0.18s ahead of VS (3:31.65). Hwa Chong Institution (HCI) took the bronze in 3:35.44.

They turned out to be, but not before erasing a few relay gold droughts in the girls' A Division and C boys' 4 by 100 metres at the 63rd National Schools Track and Field Championships.

NSG Track & Field: ACS(I)’s C boys overturn disappointment; seniors rule A boys’ relays

As Harry Irfan Curran crossed the finish line first in the C Division boys’ 4 by 400 metres relay final, he raised his arms into a heart shape directed at his Anglo-Chinese School (Independent) teammates. That gesture stemmed from relief more than anything. A day earlier in the 4x100m relay final, the same quartet — the favourites having qualified fastest — got disqualified when second runner John Tan, the 200m hurdles champion, fell in the exchange zone and outgoing runner Sean Gerard Yoo picked up the baton before his teammate did.
