first_imgPHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania: Jamaican high schools stole the spotlight on yesterday’s final day of competition at the 2016 Penn Relays in Philadelphia. Kingston College (KC) produced the most impressive display with a record-equalling 39.63 seconds to capture the 4×100 metres. The record was set last year by Calabar High. The win gave KC their eighth sprint relay title. They joined Camperdown High as the winningest high school male team in the event. St Jago avenged their Gibson Relays defeat in the 4×800 metres relay. The quartet of Eric McKenzie, Joel Jean Pierre, Keenan Lawrence and Leon Clarke on anchor with a 1:52.17 leg was too good for St Elizabeth Technical, who had to settle for second in 7:35.20, with third going to Green Hope out of North Carolina in 7:41.01. Kingston College ended fifth in 7:45.12. There was a major upset in the 4×400 metres. Favourites Calabar were beaten by Jamaica College (JC). With KC’s Bloomfield pulled from the event due to a calf injury, the stage was set for Calabar to defend their title easily after qualifying impressively in their heat early yesterday. Calabar led easily for the first two legs, but JC’s Devaughn Baker ran an impressive third leg to give teammate Phillip Lemonious a healthy lead. Despite a valiant effort from Christopher Taylor, the task was too much as JC won in a season’s best 3:12.34. Calabar were second in 3:13.09 as the much touted T.C. Williams had to settle for third in 3:13.55. St Jago clocked 3:14.53 for fifth, while Edwin Allen were sixth with 3:16.69. Kingston College finished at the back of the field on 3:19.48. Jamaican high schools also picked up three individual wins. In the first race of the day, Edwin Allen High’s Rayon Holmes won the 400 metres hurdles in 52.47 seconds. Jamaica College’s Clayton Brown captured the high jump with a leap of 2.12m, while Kobe Jordan Rhooms of Cornwall College was third with 2.03m. Obrien Wasome, also of JC, won the triple jump with 16.91m from Calabar’s Javier Lowe, 15.83m, and Jordan Scott of Campion, 15.08m. KC got a brilliant start from Shivnarine Smalling, then the outstanding Akeem Bloomfield ran a scorching second leg to put KC in a commanding lead as Jhevaughn Matherson and anchorman Tyrese Bryan went through the motions for an emphatic win. Defending champions Calabar also went under 40 seconds, finishing second in 39.89, with T.C. Williams of Virginia placing third in 40.56. St Jago High were fourth in 40.63 as Jamaica College were disqualified after placing sixth. Major upset Commanding leadlast_img read more
