Winnie Palamo was one of the most outstanding athletes in her grade at the Secondary School Athletics on Saturday. Allowed to enter a maximum of three individual events, she won all three! She is now the Under 14 100m , Long Jump and 80m hurdles champion! An outstanding effort! We thank God for her gifts and talents that were on display!
