Kingston College’s (KC) Wayne Pinnock added to his ISSA/GraceKennedy Boys’ and Girls’ Athletics Championship gold medal in the long jump with another in the boys’ class one 110-metre, the two coming in record-breaking fashion. 

Pinnock, after leaping to 8.05 metres on Thursday, returned to face a crack field of hurdlers, including the Champs record holder, Dejour Russell of Calabar, who was running just his second race of the season.

Pinnock would clock 13.06 seconds to break Russell’s 2018 record of 13.10, finishing ahead of teammate Akeem Cargill, 13.28, and Rasheed Broadbell of St Jago High, 13.33.

Russell was fourth in 13.43 seconds.

In the class two event there was another record with St Jago’s Vishaun Vascianna running to 13.26 seconds, dismissing teammate Jahvel Granville, 13.43, with Jamaica College’s Neil-Matthew Sutherland, third in 13.75.

St Elizabeth Technical’s Ashauni Segree must be cursing his luck for not getting onto the podium, his fourth-place finish also timed at 13.75.

In the boys’ Class three 100-metre hurdles, there was another KC quinella with Ra’John Gray first across the tape in 13.17 seconds, with Amontae Wray, 13.18, second. St Elizabeth Technical’s Allem Pinto was third in 13.25 seconds.

Over on the girls side of the hurdles picture, The Queen’s School, grabbed a rare win through Daszay Freeman in the class one 100 hurdles, who crossed the tape in 13.63 seconds, just ahead of Winsome Harris of St Elizabeth Technical, who ended in 13.66. Joda Campbell of Hydel was third in 13.67.

In the Class two 100-metre hurdles, Excelsior’s Ackera Nugent continued to show herself the class of the field, running a championship record 12.91 seconds. Cystal Morrison of St Jago was second in 13.20, while Salieci Myles was third in 13.50.

In the Girls’ class 3 80-metre hurdles, Danae Nembhard, 11.08, pulled her teammate Kay-Lagay Clarke, 11.25 to a St Jago quinella, while Alexis James of Petersfield, 11.28, was third.

In the girls’ 10-12 70-metre hurdles, Santae Wilson clocked 10.49 seconds to give Edwin Allen nine points, while St Elizabeth Technical High’s Habiba Harris, 10.64, was second. Third was St Jago High School’s Jaeda Miller, who clocked 10.75 seconds.
