Hydel Prep continued the relentless march to their 14th-straight JISA/Little Caesars Pizza National Athletics Championships title as they surged to a 23.50-point lead on day two of the three-day event inside National Stadium.

They ended the day on 62 points, trailed by Mona Prep on 38.50 and Our Lady of the Angels Prep (OLA), who make up the top three so far.

In the girls' section Hydel have 40 points with OLA second on 27 and Portmore Missionary on 17.70, Knox Junior College with 14 and Ardenne Prep on 13.5 making up the top five.

On the boys' side, Mona lead with 25.5, Hydel are just behind on 22, Sts Peter & Paul on 15.5, Vaz with 10 with OLA, and Lannaman's tied for fifth on six points.

Kaden Harris of Mona Prep won gold in the only final for the boys on day two when he cut the sand at 5.19m in the Class One long jump. His teammate Nathan Christie was second with 5.12m, while Kahiem Carby of Lanamman's was third with a best of 5.09m.

Mikayla Brown of Hydel won the Class One girls' high jump on countback after she and Tatanya Anglin of Our Lady of the Angels cleared 1.44m. Davine Dickenson of Quest Prep was third with 1.41m.

Brown didn't have long to recover to take on the long jump but could only manage second place with 4.82m, as last year's Class Two champion Zonya-Camay Sterling of Mona Prep stepped up in class and showed her quality by landing her second gold in the discipline in two years. Sterling landed the Class One gold with a best of 4.97m. Alexia Latore of Hydel finished third with 4.64m.

All the events to be contested today are finals and the action gets going at 10:00 am with the Class Two boys' long jump. The boys' 4x200m final will close the show, but in between that there is sure to be lots of entertainment for the fans, including the 60m hurdles which has shown vast improvement by the athletes in just one year.
