Kirkvine , Manchester — The 35th staging of the JAAA/Puma/Pat Anderson/Charlie Fuller Development Meet at Kirkvine resulted in balanced performances from the various schools involved.

The organisers of the meet also used the opportunity to honour four individuals who have impacted the sport of track and field over the years — coach Raymond “KC” Graham; official Orville Al Thompson; manager of the Kirkvine grounds Clive Miller; and system analyst Wayne Long.

Edwin Allen High's Tia Clayton, the Class Three 200-metre winner (24.94secs) and Clarendon College's Rojay Morris, the Class Two Boys' 200-metre winner (22.40secs) won the most valuable athletes of the meet awards.

The meet ended early as heavy showers during the 1500 metres made it impossible to continue, forcing the abandonment of the 400 metres and 4x800-metre relays.
