A local track team had a decent
showing in Jamaica
The Mustang track club had mixed
fortunes at the Camper-Down track and field classic held in Kingston at the national stadium last Saturday.
At the end of the one day meet
Anissa Owen won two medals: a silver in the women’s long jump with a leap of
5.48m and a bronze in the U20 women shot putt with a throw of 10.50m. Chantelle
Morrison was another medallist with silver in the U17 girls 100m with a time of
On the other hand Ashleigh Nalty, who
was expected to medal in the U17 girls high jump, had a very unfortunate situation
where she pulled out temporarily to run a leg of the U17 girls 4x100m relay
which took awhile to get going.
When she returned to the high jump the
competition was already finished and though she was given a chance to jump by
herself it did not work in her favour as the relay team finished fourth in a
time of 49.19s.
Other notable performances came
from the boys 4x100m relay with Lloyd Barker running the lead off leg while
Troy Long, Andrew Perrin and young Rajay Reid managed a second place finish in
their heats in a time of 44.47s.
All of the sprinters had fair
result in the 100m considering some were running the event for the first time
this season. The Boys high jumpers did ok as Justin Nalty placed ninth in the
boys class two event with a leap of 1.70m, just outside the Carifta qualifying
mark of 1.80m.
Travis Webb had a sixth place finish
in the boys class one event with a leap of 1.90m, just outside the Carifta mark
As usual the team was led by managers
Sana Tugman, Michael Nalty and Coach Tyrone Yen.
