KINGSTON, Jamaica — Hydel High are expected to score heavily in the hurdles finals set for later today after this morning's heats.
Hydel High has seven athletes, just one shy of the maximum, while St Jago will be represented by five runners and Edwin Alen has just three through all four classes.
Oneka Wilson of Hydel leads all the qualifiers in Class 1 with a wind-aided 13.79 seconds (3.0m/s) and will have team mate Gizel Clayton with her.
Two Hydel runners, Kerrica Hill – 13.50 (-0.9 m/s) and Shania Myers- 13.79 seconds (0.3m/s), lead the Class 2 qualifiers followed by two from St Jago, Danae Nembhard and Kay-Lagay Clarke.
Holmwood Technical's Kiara Meikle had the fastest qualifying time in Class 3 with 11.41 seconds (-0.3 m/s), followed by St Jago's Camoy Binger- 11.44 seconds.
Despite having to run her first round heat twice, Tihanna Reid of Hydel High leads the Class 4 girls with 10.47 seconds (1.0 m/s) ahead of Wolmers Girls Tiana Marshall- 10.75 seconds (1.8m/s) and two Vere Technical runners Kecia King and Shavouna Wright.
The first heat with Reid was called back after a faulty start but the runners appeared not to have the recall gun and completed the race, prompting the rerun.
