Calabar rebound in sprint relays at JII
CALABAR High won both relays at the 11th Jamaica International Invitational meet as the high school season came to an end.
Despite fielding weakened teams from those that competed at the 120th Penn Relays a week earlier, the high school relays provided excitement at the meet that saw a good turnout.
There was one mishap as the Edwin Allen girls 4x100m team failed to finish, dropping the baton on the second change over between Claudette Allen and Saqukine Cameron.
Holmwood Technical took advantage of the mishap to win in 46.26 seconds ahead of The Queens (46.98 seconds), and Herbert Morrison, who clocked 47.67 seconds.
Calabar ran 39.83 seconds to win the boys' sprint relay ahead of St George's College (40.30 seconds) and St Jago high (41.06 seconds).
They returned later to win the 4x400m in 3 minutes 11.13 seconds, beating St Elizabeth Technical (3 minutes 13.19 seconds) and St Jago (3 minutes 20.12 seconds).
Edwin Allen High won the girls' 4x400m in 3 minutes 40.65 seconds, beating Holmwood Technical in 3 minutes 43.44 seconds and Petersfield High (3 minutes 56.90 seconds).
