Mustang athletes did well, winning three top awards at the association awards dinner last Saturday.
Jamal Walton took the youth boy’s awards with his two gold medal performances at last year’s CUT Championship in the British Virgin Islands.
Ashleigh Nalty took the girls equivalent in a tight decision from another Mustang athlete, Chantelle Morrison.
Travis Webb also won a close race in the junior boys division ahead of Kemar Hyman of the Hy-Tech Track Club.
Neville ‘Teddy’ McCook of Jamaica and president of the CAC region was the main guest speaker for the evening.
McCook was impressed with the development of the athletes here and encouraged the government and the private sector to continue their support in track and field.
Past president Delroy Murray also had high praise for the newly elect executive members of the association and urged them to continue the way forward with the development of the athletes and the sport in the Cayman Islands.
Several other notable guests were present in the audience at the Mary Miller Hall, including Truman Bodden Attorney at law and former MLA, Donald McLean President of the Cayman Island Olympic Committee and Richard Hew, CEO of CUC. They all assisted with the handing out of various certificates and trophies to the young athletes.
