Jamaican High School Team Set To Dominate Again

Jamaican high schools will start their quest for glory today at the 116th Penn Relays Carnival which gets underway at the refurbished Franklin Field on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania in what is predicted to be cool and rainy conditions.

Nearly 40 high school teams and six college teams will take part at the meet, the largest annual meet in the United States, and will mark the 46th year that representatives from Jamaica will be taking part since a Kingston College team first made the trip in 1964.

Seventeen Jamaican girls’ schools will take part today and will compete in the preliminary heats of the 4x100m, 4x400m and 4x800m relays as well as the 400m hurdles which will be run as a final, along with three jumping finals — long, high and triple.
