Shenell Tucker who was in the final two years ago when Champs was last held, is also through to the final after she ran 01.04 seconds for second place in the third semi-final.
Vere Technical's Moseiha Bridgen, Jodyann Dixon of Edwin Allen High and the St Jago pair of Safhia Hinds and Quaycian Davis also advanced to the final.
