On Sunday, 15th January, 2012 six (6) middle distance runners from the Fatima College Athletics Team participated at the National Secondary Schools 5k Championships. The boys left school at 1:15 p.m., making their way to Palo Seco for the 3:30 start. The results were very good as Jonathan Pantin (Form 3-3) again showed his class by placing 2nd in the under-17 category and 17th overall out of the 135 competitors.
The other athletes – Nahshon Rullow (Lower VI), William Alexander (Upper VI), Jeremiah Gibbes-Clarke (Form II), Ross Garcia (Form II), and Scott Marchack (Form I) also performed with distinction.
