Racking up win after win Saints gave the competition hardly a chance to get past them. Kayla December gave Saints top points in the girls’ Under-12 shot put and javelin and third in the long jump. December shared the honours of first place with St Mary’s Kerisha Jarvis in the javelin throw after both had a best throw of 6.70m.
Saints ambushed the entire girls’ Under-14 category taking first place as well as second in the shot put, discus, and javelin throws and the long jumps. The trend almost extended in the girls Under-16 category. Saints won first and second in all but the discus throw in the girls Under-16 category.
In the discus throw though Deshawna Williams’ 11.18m ensured the first win for Saints, Brickdam’s Tandika Bobb-Semple claimed the second place win after throwing 10.70m. Third place went to Brickdam, after Akeisha Fraser managed 10.64m on her second throw.
Gordon Trotman was Saints’ leading man in the boys’ Under-16 category. No one came close to Trotman’s 29.62m in the javelin throw. In the long jump Trotman flew 5.32m to overcome the 5.20m leap by Brickdam’s Shane Garraway.
But it was in the discus throw that Trotman found himself overpowered by his own teammate. Saints Kenroy Earle on his very first try managed a 21.53m toss that no one else could outdo, leaving Trotman in second place after managing only 19.35m.
Shania Wilkinson took first place in the girls Under-18 category javelin and discus throws.
The Business School picked up a first place win in the boys’ Under-20 discus thanks to Amil Khan who had a best throw of 17.24m.
