Back on track for future meets

The recent staging of the CARIFTA
Games created an extra interest in track and field and that was evident on
Saturday at the first meet since the Easter event.

The annual May Day meet had plenty
of competitors in many disciplines and some were vying for a spot at the
Caribbean and Central America Games in Puerto Rico in July and other meets
around the region.

Sprinter Wallace Lyttle is Jamaican
and cannot compete for Cayman at the CAC Games. Kemar Hyman and Tyrell Cuffy
will be doing the honours for Cayman. They are away at university in the US and
in their absence Lyttle remains the fastest here.

He won the 100 metres in 11.20
seconds, ahead of Philip Ritch (11.40) and Elroy Allen (11.50).

Wallace also beat off a large field
in the 400m to win in  51.70secs. Second
was Darryl Lashley (52.20) and third was Lloyd Barker (52.70).

The Cayman Brac cousins Andrew and
Jonathan Frederick were competing in the field events. Andrew won the boys
15-16 shot put with a throw of 11.16m and Jonathan won the boys 13-14 javelin
with a throw of 30.87m and the shot with 12.44m.

winning the boys 15-16 javelin with 45.57m.
