Jamaica’s Dominance at the Penn Relays continues in 2014




Well, Penn Relays 2014 has now ended and the Jamaican High Schools have continued their dominance winning five of the six relays that they competed in. Congrats to Edwin Allen for taking a double (4x100m and the 4x400m) and for the boys it was JC in the 4x100m, St. Jago in the 4x400m and Calabar in the 4x800m. It was notable that Jamaica occupied the top 6 positions in the boys 4x100m, the top 3 positions & 6th place in the 4x400m and 1st, 3rd, 9th & 11th in the 4x800m

The Girls almost duplicated the performance of the Boys in the 4x100m by taking the top 3 positions as well as 5th and 6th; in the 4x400m they took the top 4 positions as well as 5th place and in the 4×800 they took 2nd & 3rd.

Jamaica also did well in the individual events; the Boys took the High Jump with Bryan from Wolmers, the Triple Jump with Clayton Brown of JC and the 400H with Hyde of Wolmers while the Girls also won 3 individual events; the Discus by Frazer of Edwin Allen, the Long Jump by Claudette Allen of Edwin Allen and the High Jump by Krista-Gay Taylor of Alpha.
