KES hosted the second annual Grand Prix Athletics Meet this past Saturday 7 September with ten schools and one invitational team in attendance. The host school also took home the most hardware with 21 golds and 51 medals in total. 

The event, introduced in 2012, is tallied on individual athletic achievement rather than school team points to give athletes the opportunity to test themselves against the best in their region. This year saw a total of 709 athletes competing.
